This IDC Survey Spotlight focuses on the current and planned use of technology to combat the growing industrial (manufacturing, energy, mining, etc.) skills gap. There are many tools and innovation accelerators that are being used today that can augment a company's current workforce and make them more productive. Being able to make effective decisions in a shorter timeframe is becoming essential to success, and adoption and investment plans line up with that goal.
This IDC Survey Spotlight is based on IDC's May 2019 Industrial Talent Management Survey, which surveyed almost 500 organizations worldwide spanning 15 countries and 4 industries. All of the organizations are currently focused on talent management. Companies include those from segments such as manufacturing, oil and gas, utilities, and mining.
