In today’s rapidly changing digital landscape, companies that understand their talent needs and know how to meet them have a competitive edge. Over the next five years, large companies will invest, on average, hundreds of millions of dollars—and some more than a billion dollars—to transform their business to digital.
And given the rapid pace of change, companies will increasingly need to be able to engage with broader ecosystems encompassing a range of businesses and technologies as well as position themselves to take advantage of emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things. That requires IT systems that can process massive amounts of data, continuously deliver new infrastructure environments in minutes, be flexible enough to integrate with outside platforms and technologies, and deliver exceptional customer experiences—all while maintaining core legacy IT systems.
While there is a broad range of skills needed, we at Sagacity Search – Digital have invested our time, efforts, search investments, and inordinate amount of focus on the following technology skills, that we believe are most likely the biggest gaps and challenges in the talent pool of companies invested in rapidly digitalizing their or their customer businesses.
