If you thought things were bleak for Lotus Notes administrators, things are really depressing for GroupWise administrators. The market share for GroupWise is difficult to pin down, but is very small in most industries (though they still have a market in some areas, such as governments and schools). As with NetWare, the market share just keeps shrinking, so it is time to broaden your horizons and start looking at other platforms and technologies before your job is outsourced. See the recommendations associated with Lotus Notes administrators for some guidance in this area.

IT is a very fast changing industry - what is hot today may be a tiny niche market in only a few years and things that few have heard of may be huge trends in the same timeframe. There are many new technologies on the way, and that means opportunities for those who watch the coming trends to prepare themselves early on, and thus have experience when the demand picks up. There are many articles devoted to what is hot in the IT industry today, so we won't rehash them here. Instead, Global Knowledge has focused on skills that are going away. If these skills are all you have, you may soon find yourself in an unemployment line. If these skills are the most recent ones you have, NOW is the time to update your skill set and prepare for the future.

This year's top 10 skills that are going the way of the dinosaur (in no particular order) include the following.
