  • What technology roles are in highest demand for the most important technology initiatives?
  • How difficult has it been to fill IT security professional positions?
  • How has finding the right people to hire into technology roles changed compared with 12 months ago?
  • Please estimate how much longer it now takes you to fill technology roles compared with 12 months ago.
