June 1, 2017

This is a very trying time for IT Companies and as well as for the workforce. A large number of workforce is gradually growing old and finding that their skills are no longer relevant.

Seeing the writing on the wall, some people have quickly moved onto emerging skills that are short of manpower and hence there is growing demand in those skills.

A word of caution is warranted. One needs to understand that these are not based on any methodology and do not have solid numbers to back them up. That is the reason, you will find multiple such lists floating around in the internet. One needs to read them carefully and understand their implications and take an informed decision based on one's own situation and career ambitions.

Below is a reproduction based on 'Economic Times' article. There is another list published by Linkedin which can be found on this site as well.
