anagers of information technology for companies are well aware of Moore's Law, coined by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore roughly stating that computer processing power would double every 18 months. In today's business climate—and tomorrow's—where supercharged global competition is the only sure thing, the value of IT to business has risen on somewhat of a Moore's Law trajectory—the importance of IT to conducting business in an efficient, innovative, and competitive manner grows at a breakneck pace in line with advancing technologies. In this light, competitive companies must either train employees in IT specialties or hire experts.
The Northern Indiana Workforce Board (NIWB) is conducting an aggressive research program to assess comprehensively the IT training needs of employers in the region. Thus, the anchor for today's WorkOne Employer eNews is an interactive survey on the WorkOne web site for IT managers to provide NIWB researchers with this important information.
