IT departments suffer from reverse skills gap

From IT Pro

"Businesses are suffering from a reverse IT skills gap, according to research from VCE, the converged infrastructure wing of the EMC Federation.

The investigation, which has been published in a report called Endangered IT, showed many IT workers are at risk of becoming obsolete because they are too specialised in disciplines that are increasingly being outsourced.

Speaking at a round table held in London to launch the report, EMEA CTO of VCE Nigel Moulton said: ‘Traditional IT people still think very much in the 'build it yourself mentality', business leaders want them to think in the buy/acquire capability mentality.

‘So here you start to see a set of data that actually, when we go down this route, the traditional approach is not going to serve us well.’

The survey showed that the move towards ‘buy’, which is to say cloud and managed services, leads to a reduction in IT budgets but also exposes a significant skills gap between IT workers, the way that they interact with each other and the way they interact with other areas of the business.”
