Demand for Java Engineers Up With Continued Growth in Smart Hand-Held Devices:RGA
Companies are Focusing on Site Enhancements With More Sophistication and User Friendliness

The demand for Software Engineers with experience in Java, J2EE and J2ME is expanding at an incredible pace, says John Polk Stewart, Director of RGA Consulting in San Francisco. "The need is tremendous because more and more applications are being added to hand held devices like phones and PDAs," says Stewart. According to Canalys, (http://www.canalys.com) a world leading market research and analysis firm, the year-to-year growth rate for smart mobile devices continues at a consistent 55% (same as the past 2 quarters). The pure handheld segment fell 33%, but smart phones increased to a 75% growth rate, exhibiting the convergence of these market segments and concomitant flip in unit type shipments. Stewart said that "creating the many new applications for smart phones has enabled such overall strong growth and will continue for the foreseeable future," hence the expanding need for qualified Java developers.

As the rush to just get a website on the net has waned, most companies are focusing on site enhancements or redesigns with more sophistication coupled with greater user friendliness. Although this is a separate market segment within software development, it becomes related because of the need for Java developers to create the back end for these new sites and the resulting demand for engineers that are already being pursued for the smart mobile device industry. Within the website segment, the new requirements have also accelerated demand for experienced User Interface (UI) designers with significant human factors knowledge. A Google search for companies in the category "Software Development" shows that there are over 15,000 companies involved in this market segment, dramatically increasing the pressure on finding and hiring qualified software engineers.

Stewart said that "it takes years of experience to build a company that clients will trust with this level of development, no matter the technology. We have been doing this for over 25 years and our clients know that we provide only the best... it is a pleasing labor keeping up with the demand." Stewart continued, "These bread and butter technologies that are taken for granted everyday require serious technological expertise and some of the best minds in the world are making things better, faster and cheaper for us all... we just don't see the work they do." RGA's challenge is to match the client's development project needs with the right engineer. Stewart knows that having relationships over the years with these senior engineers is a huge advantage for both the engineer and the client. His final comment was that "when we call these engineers they know who we are, that we work on the coolest projects and we know what we are doing. For the client there is a sense of comfort and security that they can trust us and the engineers we provide them."
