IT skills shortage could lead to talent wars

IT departments in the UK and mainland Europe should brace themselves for the biggest “war of talent” since the 1990s, a leading research group has warned.

IT departments will face increasing difficulty recruiting staff with key skills as companies begin to work through project backlogs that have accumulated over the past three years, said Forrester Research.

Forrester is advising IT departments to invest in project management and staff scheduling software to make the most of the IT staff they have and reduce the impact of shortages.
