To add to your comment,

I think no one would have expected for smartphone to have the level of acceptance and dependency as they do today.

So like any technological breakthroughs, many of them take time, till it comes to a point that they become the norm.

Driving analytics
Excellent Article Mary Jane!!

This is not surprising, given that this trend has been rising along side the wider acceptance of social media and cloud solutions... since these combined have inadvertly provided a wealth of data that be captured and crunch to provide analysis on just about everything.

" the surprises here have more to do with the burgeoning demand for analytics workers of all stripes."

This is a trend that it's also seen with the constant demand for cloud solutions, so more and more professionals in these areas are being demanded.

I think that data analytics specific for city management maybe be a trend that will generate greater demand going forward, given the constant movement of obtaining greater levels of efficiency and "greenness"

multi talent
I agree Nicole, it also seems that the more you can combine IT skills the better you will be. As with every tech breakthrough its those that can cross barriers and make connections that create the platforms that support our techy lifestyles. I think the east coast has always been interested in challenging the status quo in places like San Fransisco so its logical that these are the places that are pushing IT forward. This is my UK perspective, I could be wrong here!! Whoever you are though, I think the sustainability of data centres is a massive issue for this century so bring on the experts. Maybe 'IT sustainability consultant' will be the career of the century!!!

Must say
Seems like whatever coast you're on, it's a good time to have the brain for analytics. I believe the demand for these positions is only destined to grow.

All American City Columbus
As a former resident of Columbus, and graduate from OSU I can certainly recommend it for a great place to live and work, with one caveat. The weather.

Now is one could only choose to work in Central Ohio for the nice lovely Summer, Spring, and Fall, then take the Winter in San Francisco, for it's outstanding pay, all would be great!

Using analytics? It's criminal
Interesting report and writeup, Mary. In my own local burg of Los Angeles, analytics is coming in for some credit for crime reduction... the City of Angels just recorded its 11th straight year of lower crime rates, due in part to use of analytics with crime and law enforcement data.
