IT talent and job market mismatch in the GCC

Technology is a vital part of every industry today but there is a severe shortage of skilled professionals globally and regionally due to an insanely fast speed of technological development.

Jyoti Lalchandani, group vice-president, and regional MD said there was a shortage of IT skills in the local market, especially in new and innovative technologies such as cloud, analytics, machine learning, robotics, artificial intelligence and cyber security.

“Whenever a company wants to apply these kinds of skill sets, they at times might have to hire from abroad. There is clearly a scope for tech graduates but what is critical in this region is to ensure the type of graduates that are currently available in the market to fulfill the needs of the organizations,” he said.
