Companies should be looking to cross train to add extra value to their business and address e-commerce skill shortages. This was the prediction of recruitment company Elan Computing which suggests similarities between some programming languages, such as C++ and Java, will make it a relatively simple process to cross-train programmers.

Peter Anthony, Elan's business development director said that staff must bring more than just the necessary technical skills to an e-commerce project. "Businesses will require people who possess not only programming but also business skills which include marketing, business development and financial acumen."

Elan also expects that pay rates for those with e-commerce skills, such as ASP services, Dreamweaver, BroadVision,Visual Basic and C++ will increase significantly over the next 12 to 18 months.
