Knowing how to deploy and use technology is often more important than the technology itself. Yet enterprises around the globe are facing major challenges acquiring staff with the right combination of technical and business skills to enable true innovation and digitalization.
This IDC Presentation describes IDC Europe's vision of the "Future of Skills": how to assess the skills that are needed in the digital era, where and how to source these new skills, critical issues of developing these skills, and how different stakeholders need to collaborate to plan better for the skills needed in the future. It also provides actions to consider for employers in both the IT vendor and IT buyer communities, as well as academia and government bodies.
