This IDC study describes how the evolving and increasingly pervasive Internet, built on mobile devices, cloud services, social technologies, and big data, is creating a heightened sense of urgency for CIOs to strategize now for their staffing needs of the future. IT organizations are expected to undergo a sea change as they adopt cloud, mobile, social, and big data/analytics technologies. As IT organizations move to the 3rd Platform, there are six significant implications that IT executives must begin addressing immediately to remain competitive on the 3rd Platform. In this study, we identify these six implications and strategies for how to get in front of them.
"The implications of the 3rd Platform on IT staffing are significant and cannot be ignored," says Meredith Whalen, senior vice president, IT Executive, Industry, and Financial Research. "CIOs will need to employ a series of tactics including retraining existing employees, reshaping existing roles, and partnering with educational institutions in order to begin preparing their workforce for this future reality."
