    Want to lock in some job security in IT over the next five years? Then make sure you're poised to move into cloud computing or mobile application development. That's where the IT jobs are expected to be, according to 2000 IT professionals recently surveyed by IBM.

More than half (55 percent) of survey respondents believe that in the same amount of time, the need to develop applications for mobile devices (such as Android, iPhone, iPad and PlayBook) will far surpass the need to develop software for traditional PCs and servers.
