Canada Cogitates On The Future of IT

ITworld Canada reports on how the Canadian Coalition for ICT (CCICT) is hoping to increase the number of students studying IT through its new National ICT Week event. "We need to get the word out as to how the world is changing, and change people's attitudes toward IT as a career plan," says CCICT executive director David Ticoll.
"In addition to being afraid of the dot-com crash fall-out and offshoring, they don't really think an IT career is competitive.
But the reality is that the demand profile is changing: around 25% of IT workers are business analysts, and those are the most in demand."

I wonder if that's still true since the econo-bomb went off?
