“Our survey of executives shows confidence in job creation and accelerating interest in investments and acquisitions,” said Kathy Greenler Sexton, SIIA’s VP and general manager of the Content Division. “We view this as another sign that the industry is poised for strong forward growth and that it will continue to be an essential driver of the information economy.”

Sexton continued, “One meaningful cautionary note in our survey is the potential difficulty in finding skilled employees. Executives clearly want to hire more people, but there is a pervasive concern that finding the right employees could prove challenging.”

As part of its annual Information Industry Summit, the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) recently released a survey of 50 CEOs, vice presidents and general managers of leading digital content and publishing companies. The survey found strong positive signs regarding job and economic growth, along with a clear industry focus on “Big Data,” while suggesting that economic uncertainty remains.
