How long does a domain survive?

Hello Everyone,

I am working with a PLM [ Product Life cycle Management ] product. As of now, this product has lots of openings across India. Also, the languages involved are C++,java and java script to some extent. Now, I have a question here.

How long would a particular domain be a hot cake?. Today, like I mentioned this domain is really hot and the product that I mentioned [ well..I haven't out of rules @ CR ] is very much in demand. But, how would I know how the product might be in future.....say 5/10 years down the line?. Moreover, how would I know the demand for that domain at that period?..

I would like to have some opinion on this from experts here....as you guys have good amount of experience and you might typically know how these things go.

Thanks,
Pavan.

You don't. The IT and software worlds are too fast-lived to make predictions like this 5 years out. That's the entrepreneurial risk you take (amongst other risks, like -even if the technology and the market are ready- you and your product and your company might not be).

Thanks Ulf for the response. So, is it really a good idea to go after a domain in particular or should one be going after technology?. One more thing that bothers me is the tech stack. It is C++ and Java. So, somewhere down the line i'm wondering if this *might* not be advantageous.

Thanks,
Pavan.

You should be learning as much as you can about as much as you can. The idea that one can make a career out of one particular language, technology or domain is short-sighted at best.
