The Battle for Asia's Tech Talent

It could take as long as three years in some countries to train enough skilled workers to meet today's demands, according to industry watchers

Skills in business application and software development, amongst other fields, are expected to be in high demand across the Asia-Pacific region's more developed markets. However, it could take as long as three years in some countries to train enough talent to meet today's demands, according to industry watchers.

As the region sees increased development work, and with more functions being undertaken in-house by companies, there will be further boost in demand for .Net and J2EE developers, networking engineers and professionals with SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation skills, DP Search director Andrew Sansom said in an e-mail interview.
