"Rapid demand of solutions and the advent of new technologies have created a huge demand for various skills sets associated with business analytics services. The surplus in demand is putting tremendous pressure on services providers to attain, train, and retain top talent for their business analytics practices," says Ali Zaidi, senior analyst, IT Consulting and Systems Integration Business Strategies at IDC. "In addition, vendors that have created talent management strategies to successfully handle the skill shortage issues as well as provide services across the spectrum of consulting, project-based and long-term outsourcing services will be in the driving seat to handle client demands in the future," says Mukesh Dialani, research director, Worldwide BPO and Engineering Services at IDC.
