Where Should European IT Managers Look to Fill the Skills Gap?

By: Martin SundbladResearch Manager


This IDC Survey Spotlight analyzes results from IDC's January 2021 Global IT Skills Survey. Data is based on 282 respondents across seven European countries.

The gap between demand and supply of IT professionals is threatening the implementation of digital transformation (DX) across Europe. It represents, on average, a delay of 8.1 months for DX projects. Skills development and matching is becoming a bottleneck, if not the main bottleneck, for successful business and digital transformation. Organizations should acknowledge the dependency and link their business and DX strategies to a skills development strategy. It is past time when a skills shortage could only be filled with recruitment or external consultants; these traditional measures must be combined with upskilling and reskilling of current staff.
