Europe has a significant shortage of people with digital skills.
The European shortage of trained candidates for digital jobs in 2020 is huge.
Latest research by reputed analyst firm suggests that the shortage for unfilled digital jobs in Europe will reach up to 750,000 by 2020. This means that Europe is at risk of missing out on the economic and social benefits of trends like big data and cloud computing if not enough technical workers are produced in the region.
Global big data technology and services are set to grow from €3bn in 2010 to €16bn this year, seven times more quickly than the overall IT market.This kind of rapid growth means hundreds of thousands of new jobs across Europe in the coming years.
By 2020, cloud computing is due to expand to almost five times its market size in 2013, meaning more value to the economy, more jobs, more innovation.
Earlier European Commissioner Günther Oettinger had said the EU needs an annual increase of 150,000 IT experts. Currently, 40 percent of all European companies are having trouble finding qualified ICT professionals.
To add up to that, there is still concern about the declining number of students choosing to study ICT across Europe.
