The enterprise technology market is changing fast, marketing intelligence firm, IDC reports that cloud spend by companies is expected to grow at six times the rate of overall IT spending between 2015 and 2020. In addition, global demand for the cybersecurity workforce is expected to rise to 6 million by 2019, with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million.
This gap in skills means that companies looking to implement major projects are finding it increasingly hard to acquire talent and equally students leaving university won’t necessarily have the skills most needed by companies in the years to come.
