Skills Gap a 'key Hurdle for Asia-Pac firms'

April 14, 2016

 

The tech skills gap is affecting organizations around the world. According to a new survey by PwC, Industry 4.0: Building the Digital Enterprise, companies in the Asia-Pacific intend to expand their suite of digital offerings in the coming years but a shortage of skills is a key hurdle.  

 

The data for the survey came from a poll, conducted between November last year and January, surveyed more than 2,000 senior executives from industrial products companies in 26 countries across Europe, the Americas, the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa. 

 

Over 80 per cent of those polled globally, and 82 per cent in the Asia-Pacific, expect data analytics will have a significant influence on decision-making processes in five years' time. But respondents said the absence of a digital culture and the right skills are major hurdles to making operations more digital.

 

PwC findings said that 'Getting there won't be easy. Companies will need robust data analytics capabilities; that will mean making significant changes.  They will need to focus on developing the people and culture to drive transformation."  To download the PwC report Industry 4.0: Building the Digital Enterprise click this link.
