The pandemic accelerated the digital transformation plans of companies as they sought new ways to connect with their customers and enable their employees to work remotely. But for many companies, even though the digital transformation timeline has moved faster than expected, it’s still not gone as fast as they would like.
A new report from Gartner has revealed one of the reasons for the delay. The survey shows that IT executives have identified the talent shortage as the most significant adoption barrier to 64% of emerging technologies, compared to just 4% in 2020. What’s more, lack of talent availability was cited more than any other barrier in the survey, including implementation cost at 29% and security risk at 7%.
