Description

This IDC study describes the size and growth of IT professionals by role and region for 2018-2023. The document includes our forecast across 39 different job roles and an analysis of some of the key factors influencing IT professional employment as well as survey results highlighting the impact that the lack of IT professional skills will have on organizations."The lack of available IT skills will result in nearly $400 billion in lost revenue annually worldwide in the next year. As new technologies are adopted and legacy technologies are retired, the IT skill mix is changing. IT vendors and their clients need to be aware of these changes or risk losing the war for IT talent." - Cushing Anderson, program vice president, IT Education and Certification research
