TECH SUPPLIER Apr 2021 - IDC Survey Spotlight - Doc # CA47578921
What Specialized Skills Are Most Commonly Outsourced/Managed by Canadian Companies?
This IDC Survey Spotlight illustrates what type of specialized skills are most commonly being sourced outside of the hiring process by Canadian organizations. The document contains data from IDC Canada's IT Advisory Panel (ITAP), which was completed in December 2020. IDC Canada conducted this survey to understand how small, medium-sized, and large businesses are dealing with skill gaps that have formed amid considerable digital transformation adoption. As tech jobs have become scarce, especially in emerging technologies, understanding the types of skills that are needed by Canadian companies will become essential.
"Even before the COVID-19 pandemic set in, Canadian organizations were considering how they wanted to implement new technologies to augment their workforce. The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation activities, leaving many organizations lacking the specialized skill they need to function appropriately," explained Evan Hardie, research director, Future of Work and Printers and Digital Displays, IDC Canada.
