Consider these points: Jobs related to big data ranked high among the top IT skills on hiring executives’ wish lists for 2013. Open source and enterprise search job skills continue to be in demand, as we covered in earlier posts. But the skills necessary to wow employers and create amazing applications in these intersecting areas aren’t skills you’re born with. As Enterprise Search Blog reports, “One of the hallmarks of enterprise software in general is that it is complex. People in large organizations who manage instances of enterprise search as no less likely than their non-technical peers to believe that ‘if Google can make search so good on the internet, enterprise search must be trivial’ “ All of you in the Lucene/Solr community know that that myth couldn’t be further from the truth. It takes smart, skilled people like you to turn tools and technologies into market-moving applications.
