CW Nordics November 2017

The Nordic countries are pace-setters when it comes to digital transformation and although there is a wealth of IT talent in the region, it seems it is not enough.

For example, the Danish government predicts Denmark will need 19,000 more IT specialists by 2030, while Statistics Sweden estimates there will be a shortage of 30,000 engineers in Sweden. Meanwhile, the Finnish Information Processing Association warns there will be a lack of 15,000 IT experts by 2020. So organisations in the region are under pressure to not only attract the workers they need but retain them amid a plethora of opportunities elsewhere.

 

In this issue of CW Nordics, we take a look at some of our own research which points to organisations in the region focusing on becoming attractive places to work as a way to get and retain the staff they need. And it certainly seems to be working when it comes to IT staff retention. In Computer Weekly’s Global Salary Survey, figures for the Nordic region revealed that only 7.6% of Nordic IT professionals are actively looking for a new job. This compares with 15% in the UK, around 25% in the Middle East.

 

Perhaps the answer to the shortage of IT professionals is staring them in the face. In this issue, we also find out that although the countries in the region are often hailed for their achievements in equal opportunities, there is, as in many other countries, a shortage of women in IT. That’s about half the population under-utilised. Pay disparity between men and women is an issue. Find out in this issue what Iceland is doing to tackle this.

  • Invest in innovation by reducing your server management burden

Servers are often seen as an operational burden requiring costly management time, so how can you free up cost and time to allow more of your server budget to be spent on innovation?
