A new bill was introduced in the Senate that calls for 55,000 visas for foreign high-tech workers each year. The aim is to keep highly skilled foreign-born workers who graduated from U.S. research universities with advanced science and technology degrees to stay in the country, resulting in economic growth and job creation. This comes at a time when U.S. technology companies are in need to keep top talent from being made to leave and go work in other countries.
A study was just released that says the U.S. saw an estimated 466,000 new jobs through app development for smartphones and tablets. The popularity of devices running Apple iOS, Android and other mobile platforms is playing a big role in helping create what’s called the “app economy” since the iPhone was introduced in 2007.
The study “Where the Jobs Are: The App Economy”, conducted for Technet by economist Dr. Michael Mandel, says the number doesn’t just account for developers and designers, but also includes the related non-tech jobs like marketers and support staff. Expanding usage of smartphones and social networks means that we’ll see even more rapid growth in the app economy in coming years.
And speaking of mobile apps, Microsoft announced this week that the next update of its Dynamics CRM platform will include support for mobile devices. The update, which is expected in May, will have specific versions for iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7, and will satisfy a growing demand among sales, marketing and service professionals.
