Solving the Tech Skills Gap: This Means Business
This IDC Web Conference presents a top-level view of IDC's skills research agenda from IDC's European Skills Practice.
Across the globe, organizations are facing major challenges in finding staff with deep technology skills or the right combination of technical and business capabilities to deploy and use technology for their digital transformation efforts. This issue doesn't just impact the IT department — it's costing the business money and stunting organizations' ability to innovate.
In this webinar, Marianne Kolding and Marc Dowd provide a first view of IDC's groundbreaking research into skills and job roles that organizations will need to bring their strategic objectives to fruition and best practices in what organizations are doing to retrain or source the skills they need. It also shines a light on some initiatives emerging between stakeholders (the IT industry, employers, academia, and governments) to address the future availability of skills. This webinar is the first in a series, with the remaining webinars putting a spotlight on skills planning, need assessment, sourcing, and development.
