This IDC Web Conference discusses the case for IT professional skills development.
Organizations are facing major challenges in finding staff with deep technology skills or the right combination of technical and business capabilities to deploy and use technology for their digital transformation efforts. This issue doesn't just impact the IT department — it's costing the business money and stunting organizations' ability to innovate.
In this webinar, Cushing Anderson, John O'Brien, and Marianne Kolding, from IDC's European Skills Practice, provide a snapshot of IDC's groundbreaking research into the skills and job roles that organizations will need to bring their strategic objectives to fruition and best practices in what organizations are doing to retrain or source the skills they need. It also shines a light on some initiatives emerging between stakeholders (the IT industry, employers, academia and governments) to address the future availability of skills. The webinar is one of a series, with the remaining webinars putting a spotlight on solving technology skills gap, need assessment, sourcing, and development.
