By: Cathy HuangAssociate Research Director, Services and Security, IDC Asia/Pacific, James Sivalingam
This Market Analysis Perspective aims to highlight the Asia/Pacific IT education (ITE) and training services market size assessment, key supply and end-user adoption trends, drivers, and vendor share and landscape of training providers in the region. The study also provides five-year forecasts (2020–2025) for the ITE market in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan and China) (APEJC) and offers guidance on better serving the unique client needs in the Asia/Pacific market.
The Asia/Pacific region has been experiencing rapid digitalization in recent years with organizations in the region adopting emerging technologies to enhance operational efficiency and serve their customers better. However, one of the major stumbling blocks in their digital transformation (DX) journey is the dearth of talents and skills gap in IT, especially in highly critical areas, such as security, cloud, and data. The adoption of these digital technologies, as well as next-generation tools and platforms (e.g., intelligent automation, edge, digital workforce solutions), introduces a significant level of operational challenges, whereby all the workforce requires some level of IT training. Thus, organizations of all sizes in the region must rethink their staff training and skills development strategies as modern business environments make DX a critical imperative.
