The Digital Skills Deficit - Breaking the Bottleneck

There is a slew of data pointing to the existence of a significant, widespread and deepening digital skills shortage. It is viewed by many as the most significant drag on both the progress of enterprise transformations and the expansion of the IT services sector.
