Don’t Let the IT Skills Shortage Derail Your Digital Transformation

Don't let the IT skills shortage derail your digital transformation

“As the COVID-19 response accelerates the speed and scale of digital transformation, a lack of digital skills could jeopardize companies with misaligned talent plans.” – Gartner

As businesses and organisations seek to drive their digital transformation plans forward and put technology at the core of how they operate, they are being met with a big issue; an acute shortage of professionals with the IT skills to deliver technology plans for business growth.

According to Harvey Nash, a technology recruitment company, 66% of digital leaders in the UK are now unable to keep pace with change because of this dearth of talent. To add to this, some businesses are still working to define their post pandemic employee proposition for hybrid working, whilst required IT skills continue to change as technology innovation develops at pace.

So, how can digital leaders, CIOs and business owners find speedy solutions so their digital transformation roadmaps and day to day operations are not derailed?

Here’s how an IT Services Provider like Transputec can help:
