Fix Your Teams’ IT Skill Gaps in EMEA

In today’s fast-paced world, changes and improvement are inseparable parts of the business. Are you planning to deploy a new VMware technology or expand the VMware platform to support your business operations? Perhaps you’ve recently transformed the IT team structure or hired new people to streamline IT processes. Regardless of the answer, a good understanding of the current level of skills and knowledge within your IT team is essential.

A team of IT specialists with the right set of skills is a huge part of success. However, insufficient numbers of suitable applicants is the top worry for three-quarters (75%) of tech employers, according to UK recruitment and HR firm Hays’ 2023 Skills and Salary guide. This is why many European firms look to use their existing IT teams to reskill based on future objectives. From the same report: “Upskilling, reskilling and training new talent is now critical to an organisation’s growth and should be central to any credible people strategy,” says James Hallahan, Director of Hays. Whether you are hiring new talent or upskilling tenured professionals, it’s important to understand the skills needed to align with your objectives.

But how do you know which VMware skills you need, and which you already have on your team?

According to a recent Forbes article, plans are often only successful if they are relevant to the team and the outcomes they’re trying to achieve. Our Learning Solution Architects in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) tailor each KSA analysis to these outcomes, from assessing skills based on current or future job roles, to introducing new projects, or focusing on priorities to reach your business objectives.

Our learning specialists in EMEA will work with you to develop a joint plan for the short, medium, and long-term to maximise the value of your technology. Teamwork really does make the dream work.

“The fact that we’ve been able to assess everybody and build a training plan off it, is a far superior way than I’ve been able to do it with some of the other vendors…  It’s all very set in stone (with them), so I appreciate the effort you guys went through to get this set up!” – VMware KSA customer
