beta news: This is according to a new report by Brocade, entitled Global Digital Transformation Skills Study. By Sead Fadilpašić
'The report is based on a survey of 630 IT leaders in the US, UK, France, Germany, Australia and Singapore.
'It says that organizations are "at a tipping point" -- a point in time when technology demands are just about to outstrip the skills supply. Consequently, those that train their staff now and prepare for the future in that respect are the ones that are setting themselves up for a successful future.
'Almost three quarters (74 percent) of IT leaders in the UK see IT departments as either "very important" or "critical" to both innovation and the growth of their business. But the same woes reman, as almost two thirds (63 percent) think they'll struggle to find the right people in the next year.'
