IT Situation similar in the United States and Europe

A recent study conducted by the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) reveals that the USA and Europe face a similar situation in regard to the skills shortages of the IT industry.

The most relevant findings are listed below:

- A 93 percent of survey respondents identified a gap between the technical skills their IT employees possess and the skills that were acutally required in the company

- More than a 70 % indicated web design and development, cybersecurity, and networking/infrastructure as the most required skills

- In more than 40% of the midsize companies, staff productivity is hampered by IT skills shortages. In a 33% of those companies, innovation is hampered for the same reason
