There are many reasons for this but possibly the most worrying is that . This at all levels from schools and colleges to universities and its increased over the past 10 plus years.
If this doesn’t change the skills gap can only get worse.
This is going to impact you & your business. It is getting increasingly difficult to find the highly skilled people you need. There are fewer Analysts, Developers, Systems Architects, Project Managers, Support, Implementation and so on. You will do very well to secure these people.
This is impacting virtually all areas of ICT and Cyber Security including; Network Design, Development, Implementation, Security, Voice Services, Contact Centre Solutions, Workforce Optimisation, Information Security, Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, Mobility Solutions, Messaging Services and this list keeps going on.
With a big part of the problem being education then seeding your businesses with raw talent and developing these people is less of an option.
There are options such as outsoucing the skills or bringing in the talent from countries that have the skills etc. But actually this isn’t so straight forward. All flavours of government are set on making immigration more difficult. This is placing the onus firmly on you to demonstrate you cannot get the talent you need. With Brexit around the corner, I can only imagine things being more complicated.
