RE:So where are the hot areas
Depends on the context of your question. If you are asking which are the hot areas that mainframe clients need skills for, you can see the results of a SHARE survey done recently that indicates what skills are most needed by firms running their businesses on System z. The survey can be accessed at this URL: http://www.share.org/tabid/69.aspx.

I hope this is useful.

RE:So where are the hot areas
How do you mean Hot areas, do you mean those skills that employers are telling us they need? If so, check out this SHARE Study which identifies the skills areas most needed: System Programmers, DBA's, Application Programmers, etc. Here is the Link:
