What are the two or three most promising IT technical skills for the next few years? It isn’t a big stretch to predict that roles related to data management and analytics will continue to be in high demand. But I feel that the traditional business intelligence skills are evolving. The paradigms and tools around data replication, data storage and data visualization already look quite different than they did just three to five years ago. A second skill I would highlight is enterprise architecture. These skills and roles aren’t talked about now nearly as much as they were when SOA (service-oriented architecture) was such a big focus.

Seven months after his tax initiative refueled funding for California’s beleaguered public schools, Gov. Jerry Brown has orchestrated what’s being billed as a major overhaul of how the state funds K-12 education.

I also conveyed concerns about the standards being reduced to a checklist, and saw far too much business as usual in the instructional guidance I found online. It appears skills heavy, and content light. I am thankf
