There is still a lot of unemployment in Ireland – but there are shortages of ICT skills in the following areas:
Cloud (e.g. SaaS, web service, API , REST, SOAP, backbone.js )
web/mobile content management – (e.g. Interactive visual, UX/UI Visual designer, Drupal, Joomla, AngularJsS , Sencha Touch, Magneto )
IT project management and business analysis testing and troubleshooting.
Databases/(e.g. NoSQL, SQL, MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL Server, IBMS DB2, Hadoop)
Also there is a need for specific product knowledge (e.g. SAP Crystal Reports, Lotus Domino, KANA, InelliPrint Analytics etc.)
IT security is also an area where employers need skills – as well as technical support , networking and infrastructure
