Andrew Calthorpe, CEO of award-winning data storage and protection firm, Condo Protego, said that the increasing need for IT professionals coupled with a short supply in local talent is impeding organizations’ migration efforts towards emerging technologies, according to industry experts, Zawya reported. He said that “Manpower is not progressing at the same speed as technological development, and this is due to a number of challenges, including education and interest. As a result, local organizations are finding difficulty in recruiting IT professionals with the technical knowledge and skillset required to fulfill their job requirements.” “In order to ensure a sustainable recruitment model, there is a critical need for homegrown IT professionals. This should start from the grassroots, from motivating students to pursue the profession as a career, to ensuring an adequate educational infrastructure is in place.”
