2,500 jobs unfilled in the gaming and IT industries

IT expert says there is a lack of expertise in Ireland in cloud based technologies, and that posts are lying vacant.

AN EXPERT IN I.T. and business solutions says that there are 2,500 jobs unfilled within the technology sector.

Dave Feenan of CloudArena, who is also the business development manager at Swiss Post Solutions, was speaking at a conference in Dublin today which invited industry professionals to discuss doing business in a struggling economy.

Feenan said that there is a lack of expertise available in Ireland in cloud based technologies, which have been highlighted in the programme for government as a potential pillar for growth.

Dell announced last week that it’s to create 150 additional jobs in cloud-computing between Dublin and Limerick, while US firm Mycroft is creating 50 such posts in Waterford.

Last week web games giant Zynga launched its European headquarters in Dublin.
