"The demand for IT skills remain very strong. For the foreseeable future, organizations will be challenged to find enough new skills to meet the demand. The solution will be 'build it yourself' for most enterprises and technology vendors. For enterprises, this means build skill development programs to move employees into high demand IT roles. For technology vendors, it means both build your own talent and build programs to help your clients build theirs." — Cushing Anderson, vice president, IT Education and Skills for Digital Transformation research
