Research Shows The Skills Shortage Is Alive And Well In IT. By Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Advisory – Ensono IT.
A recent Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) Research paper reports that a lack of human resource, alongside skills shortage… are the biggest challenges hampering further digitisation.
40% of participating organisations cited a shortage of specific skills as preventing them from being able to execute transformational activities effectively. The problem with this assessment is that it misses the point of what skills we require to drive effective transformation.

This research, which was conducted by Vanson Bourne prior to lockdown, surveyed UK-based IT and business decision-makers and sought to understand how they were exploiting cloud and other next-generation technologies, and the barriers standing in the way of adoption.
