With the number of cyberattacks up 23% in 2021 from the previous all-time high in 2017, it’s no surprise that IT professionals ranked cybersecurity as the most in-demand expertise in their organization (27 %), closely followed by cloud expertise (23%) and data science (20%).
“The tech industry continues to evolve at a breakneck pace, prompting leaders to re-examine their digital transformation strategies,” said Raja Narayana, President and CEO of Aditi Consulting. “It’s no surprise that alongside the challenges of finding tech talent to support these initiatives, tech insiders we spoke with shared that they’re also struggling to manage the speed at which projects are delivered. “
