New Tanzu and Spring Learning Subscriptions Now Available

A skills gap occurs when people do not fully understand the technology their company has selected. It is estimated that skills gaps will cost companies $775 billion dollars by the end of 2022.

As a trusted advisor, VMware is invested in training customers on how to use technologies effectively, such as Spring and Kubernetes, to build successful applications. VMware Learning is excited to announce the rollout of two new On Demand Tanzu and Spring learning subscriptions, which will help companies overcome significant skill gaps due to inadequate training.

Digital transformation has accelerated skills gaps

According to IDC, 75% of organizations are adjusting technology roadmaps to reduce the costs of current systems, create operational efficiencies, project management and employee experience. A recent study from PWC reveals that 60% of senior executives believe that digital transformation will be critical for business growth in 2022.

The skills gap topic plays a role in today’s business landscape as many companies were forced to rethink business systems during the pandemic. As digital transformation became the dominant strategy, companies started embracing ways to make employees and operations more efficient to remain competitive. This created both a global shift and opportunity for businesses to modernize infrastructures and applications. The adoption of better technology has made headway for improvement, but organizations are scrambling for employees to fill roles needed for this new direction.

The modern application economy has arrived

Cloud-native applications are important in the pursuit of digital transformation and moving your business forward with innovation in mind. Unfortunately, many companies seem to struggle with deploying modern applications and maintaining the status quo while continuously delivering business value to their current customers. Leaders must recognize the benefits of upskilling staff members and how it will help them optimize investments, especially when going cloud-native.

Creating a culture of innovation within organizations always has its complexities. Companies must be able to balance current projects with brand new projects that require additional skills to execute. This is where upskilling your staff on areas that need to be developed most is crucial for your projects at hand. In the absence of this, you may find yourself with innovation at a standstill along with extended timelines instead of focusing your team on driving transformation.
