For many years, Rock Solid Technologies (RST) and other organizations in Puerto Rico have faced serious difficulties hiring the Information Technology (IT) professionals we need. Throughout all these years, RST has promoted and performed different activities to address this problem. Some examples of these activities are establishing close ties with universities offering IT programs, sponsoring semester and summer internships, and awarding scholarships to qualified students.
IT Professional Development in Puerto Rico
For many years, Prof. Arnaldo I. Ramos-Torres has been addressing this situation through his professional, research, and publishing activity. Among other things, he has collected data on the supply and demand of IT graduates in Puerto Rico, as well as on the accreditation of local IT academic programs. He has also published research on relevant topics like IT skills, assessment approaches and educational strategies for IT programs.
Recently, Rock Solid and Prof. Ramos-Torres joined efforts with organizations like the Puerto Rico IT Cluster, Fusionworks, the IAMCP Puerto Rico Chapter, and Truenorth, to raise awareness of this situation and propose activities to address it. One of these activities is the creation of a website with information, strategies, and products to promote development of the IT professionals that Puerto Rico needs.
