Infosys States Some Major Technical Skills in Demand Today
The Infosys Knowledge Institute conducted a study and came up with an online survey report, titled to be ‘Infosys Talent Radar 2019’. In this report, it has covered the top technical skills that are in hot demand today. They include analytics, user experience, automation, IT architecture and AI.
Also with stating the essentials, Infosys took another leap forward and also came up with reasons that prevent sufficient demand-supply match of talent and it did this so by dividing this section into two parts: Tangible barriers and Intangible barriers.
While the former covers parameters such as lack of budget, lack of management awareness and support, along with inadequate talent management plans, the latter contributes towards not successfully achieving talents complying to little importance departed towards research in an institute, giving such companies a lower pedestal against the ones that actually value learnability.
Infosys also suggests ways to improve this problem faced by cos. In order to succeed, companies must hire, develop, and retain talent better than their competition. Only those cos who reskill their workers and invest in the people of their company, will create a difference in productivity.
It conducted an online survey that included more than 1,000 CXOs and other senior-level respondents from companies with revenue greater than $1 billion. The respondents represented multiple industries including India, Australia, China, France, Germany, the UK and the US.
