The most required skills in IT organizations
The industry of organizations dedicated to the development, management, and administration of information technology (IT) is one that has shown some of the greatest growth in that last few years, ever increasing its presence and importance at a fast pace on the global scene. Even when your company does not dedicate itself specifically to this area, its technological developments directly affect all organizations in general. Clearly you need teams that are qualified in the use and application of these developments. Among the most popular skills are those related to cybersecurity, AWS Cloud, and IT automation tools like Chef Software. At the same time, there are valued non-technical skills like emotional intelligence and creativity.
The future is today. The world is advancing at the speed of AI and IT technologies. Your company cannot side on the sidelines. Staying in the game requires a modernization of skills and expertise on your work force, on your leadership boards, and in the functionality of organizational culture.
