Microsoft technologies puzzle - Suisse Romande


I have found an interesting puzzle which I am unable to solve on my own.
Hopefully, one of you has at least a clue of what I am missing / misunderstanding.

When looking at the job positions for Microsoft technologies (sharepoint, dynamics, MS SQL etc) in Suisse Romande, the demand for specialists in these areas is 5 times lower than in Canton Zürich.
The population of Suisse Romande and Zürich is approximately the same, same with the economic output.

Hence the question - why is the demand for these positions so much lower in Suisse Romande?
Is the technology itself unpopular? If yes then what technology is used instead? Maybe I am just searching for the wrong keywords? Any clues or hints are welcome!

Also - does anybody know if any organization/company is doing statistics on the demand for IT personnell in Switzerland? That would definitely clear things up.

Zürich uses Microsoft
Basel uses SAP
Suisse Romande uses chisels and rocks.

Plus keep in mind that certain Service companies took a piece of the cake. Reorgs, Offshoring and "minor hiccups" in some of MS latest (and "bestest" ever) products added to the situation.
