By: Cushing AndersonProgram Vice President, IT Education and Certification

On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Analysis Perspective (MAP) examines the market for IT education and skills for digital transformation. It includes recent industry highlights and presents a market landscape, market drivers for forecast growth, and some essential guidance. The impact on technology spending in the United States and worldwide has been dramatic, and IDC has updated its technology spending forecasts to reflect this reality. The IT education industry is tied to the fortunes of the IT market as a whole. However, to be successful, IT training organizations must navigate a wide variety of challenges:

  • Who is the client? The student or the enterprise?
  • What drives IT success?
  • What do IT education buyers really care about?
  • Are enterprises investing in training or certification?
  • When is elearning, or mobile, or video, or classroom training the best option?
  • What should IT education vendors focus on to help ensure success?

This MAP addresses these questions and provides IDC's current, best estimation of the future of the IT education and training market.

"COVID-19 rapidly transformed IT education in 2020 from classroom heavy to elearning dependent. But modality is not an important selection criterion — it's table stakes. IT education firms that can focus their marketing messages for training on improving the business value of the technology should see continued growth." — Cushing Anderson, program vice president, IT Education and Skills for Digital Transformation
