Demand for cloud computing solutions fuelled an early end to the recession in the salesforce.com ecosystem, reports Lee Durrant, MD of Resource On Demand.
He reports that a jump in the weekly registration of new vacancies from 3 to 10 and a subsequent increase of billings for his company, known as ROD. “Our clients want experienced and certified Salesforce specialists. Companies are getting finance approved for implementing salesforce.com throughout their organisations, so specialist consulting and implementation services in this space are on the increase.
Consequently, experienced salesforce.com consultants, developers and administrators are in high demand.”
He noted that salesforce.com consulting companies willing to offer inexperienced people training and experience in this space will reap the benefits in the long term due to the lack of certified & experienced people in the ecosystem. Lee Durrant also says he saw green shoots of recovery in the jobs market in the final quarter of 2009 when RODs billings trebled.
“We hope this will prove to be the turning point,” added Durrant. “We have more client requirements and more and more candidates looking to get into this exciting space.”
