For many years now, the UK has seen an alarmingly low number of people in various STEM fields, especially in the technology sector. This has led to a skills shortage in areas such as cyber security, cloud services and digital transformation processes. Due to this, many businesses find that their IT solutions do not best match their business requirements and their productivity levels suffer.
Although it may not seem like much, these crucial IT skills could hinder business progression towards digital transformation. This year has also contributed more factors, such as furlough time, which has made digital transformation slightly more difficult or more urgent.
Numerous businesses find that they do not have an IT department who can effectively plan and execute digital transformation, as they lack the IT skills in-house. This can lead to processes not being optimised to full potential, often resulting in an increase in expenditure.
Businesses can use cloud solutions to aid their data storage and make it easier to move and access data from any location. This will also make remote working more simpler and help businesses prepare for adverse economic conditions.
The implementation of cloud storage increases the security risks. This means businesses will be required to increase their cyber security to keep all their data safe. However, it is often the case that they do not have the IT skills required to do this and are therefore more likely to be the victim of a cyber attack.
All of this can be made extremely difficult if businesses do not have the IT skills, knowledge and experience required to effectively execute the solutions.
