AT&T rolls out kinda, sorta (but not really) 5G wireless service in Indianapolis
Indianapolis Star print
At a time when international technology giants are choosing to open offices in Central Indiana, AT&T selected Indianapolis as one of the first two cities for its 5G Evolution rollout. The other, Austin, Texas, is considered a top-tier tech market. "To me, this is a big deal," said Bipin Prabhakar, chair of the information systems graduate program at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. "Typically, the Midwest is not where things come first. The fact that they are doing a trial in Indy shows they see this as a big market. If you think about Austin, (it) went from being an Indy-like city to being one of the tech hubs of the country."
Skills in the MIS Job MarketProceedings of the Fifteenth Americas Conference on Information Systems
2010 With the current turmoil in the U.S. economy, it is more necessary than ever to ensure that graduates and employees have the skills necessary to compete in the job market. Previous research has looked at job advertisements in print and online media to determine skills that employers were seeking. That research has allowed only a relatively small sample of the jobs currently available to be analyzed. This research uses a web content data mining program which has obtained one quarter of a million U.S. job advertisements for information technology degree graduates from various job websites. The web content mining program then extracted the skills mentioned in those job ads for subsequent analysis.
