The information technology market is expected to grow significantly this year, as 70 percent of Israeli IT companies are planning to expand their technical staff in 2007, a survey conducted by MediaTech HiTech has found. "As the economy continues to grow and businesses are expanding, information system managers need to provide appropriate answers to organizational demands," said Yariv Inbar, CEO of MediaTech HiTech, which provides general solutions to the hi-tech industry, guiding operators and users of information technology and network environments. "Small and large organizations are investing in large IT projects that had been frozen or canceled over the past few years due to computer budget cuts," he said. Demand for IT by the 200 information system and computer managers surveyed has been increasing as a result of the growth in the economy in 2006, despite the second Lebanon war. The areas of highest demand in 2007 will be management of Microsoft systems and servers, followed by management of systems and communications, basic data management, firewall management, business intelligence management, Dot Net development, XML development, ERP implementation, Linux system management, JAVA development and implementation of CRM, according a survey carried out by Robert Half International among IT managers. The survey was conducted among 1,400 information system managers in companies with a minimum of 100 employees.
