Skills Forward: A 2023 IT Skills Shortage Survival Guide
These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Boston and Santa Clara in March 2023.
By 2025, 90% of global organizations will be staring down the barrel of a crippling IT skills crisis. The cost: More than $6.5 trillion in missed product releases, impaired competitiveness, lower customer satisfaction, and missed revenue goals. From security and data to AI, cloud, and more, tech talent is at a premium. Getting the right people with the right skills into the right roles is a strategic imperative. In this session, IDC research vice president Amy Loomis and research director Gina Smith will deliver a late-breaking look at the talent crunch and what enterprises can do right now to prepare. Why is a holistic culture of learning important? What is the best way to increase tech skill time to mastery? How should enterprises begin training and reskilling cross-functional teams? This session will dive into those topics and more.
