Abstract

New technology and changing business needs will change the job requirements and responsibilities of the future. Companies will expect their IT employees to combine business skills, analytical thinking and the ability to exhibit expertise in an array of technology areas. This paper provides a framework for addressing the skills demanded by industry and the knowledge for those skills supplied by academia. In addition the framework could be used by students, academics, and industry to identify the skill set that will meet the needs of today’s dynamic business environment.
