A lack of suitably qualified IT staff is a major concern for the industry according to a new report.
A survey by BCS, the chartered institute for the IT industry, found 61% of Chief Information Officers (CIO) did not feel they had enough resources to achieve all the work their bosses asked them and their teams to do.
The online survey, carried out in November 2012 polled 235 CIOs, with 74% saying they need additional IT staff who are already suitably qualified.
And, almost half (47%) said existing staff needed to be taught new skills to achieve priorities set out by their chief executives.
Martyn Lambert chief executive officer for BCS Learning and Development Limited said: "Our survey highlights the importance of continuing professional development.
"CIOs are being tasked with high level responsibilities that can shape a whole organisation, so it is vital their teams are equipped with the right tools to achieve their goals and compete on a global scale."
