Every New Year, most of us are motivated to change our lives for the better, and IT professionals are no exception. Many of them are planning to improve their technology skills and overall career development and advancement prospects this year, according to a recent "top resolutions" survey from Spiceworks. For example, given the rapid pace of technology shifts, the majority of survey respondents are committed to ongoing learning efforts, and many are seeking additional tech certifications. In addition, a number of these IT professionals intend to enhance existing work processes through better documentation and automation, while gaining a greater understanding of new technologies by getting more hands-on experience with developing solutions. "The start of a new calendar year is often a time to make resolutions for personal and career growth," according to a recent Spiceworks article about the findings, 'Top 10 IT Career Resolutions of 2017,' "whether that means learning new skills or tackling exciting challenges in an effort to accomplish something meaningful." The 10 resolutions—and why they matter—are summarized here. More than 1,000 global IT professionals took part in the research.
