Hiring Watch ’15: Accounting Firm IT Departments

A recent survey from Information Technology Alliance found that accounting firms are almost as desperate for IT people as they are accountants:  

“The demand for qualified IT staff within accounting firms is at an all-time high across the accounting industry,” said John Bowles, chief information officer for Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP in Charlotte, North Carolina, and chairman of the ITA CIO Academy. “Higher salary demands for IT staff will make a significant impact in the overall budgets for these firms.”

In addition, it takes longer to find qualified candidates with "deep technical skills."

I'm really looking forward to the next study that reports accounting firms lamenting about the lack of IT talent out there. It's just the sort of thing to take this to crisis to the next level.
