Today organisation's critical work systems are linked to the information technology (IT) that supports them. The growth of the internet and mobile industries as IT environments for commercial transaction and information exchange has placed additional burdens on IT teams in organisations, requiring that developers be aware both of the infrastructure of the internet/mobile networks and the enabling web/mobile technologies. The deployment of software systems on intranets and the internet is now of significant demand in the computing field and developers and IT managers must have the higher skills to deliver complete, robust hardware and software solutions for these environments.
This perspective reflects the view adopted by employers in the IT industry who seek to recruit people that have the required technical competence in the field of applied IT.
