According to a new report by the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), the UK public sector is struggling to leverage the full potential of digital transformation due to a growing digital skills gap.
The lack of technical expertise and digital proficiency is hampering the ability to deliver digital services and must be addressed if organisations are to embrace digital transformation, according to CIF.
Based on a cross-sector poll of 250 IT and business decision-makers, the research concluded that senior leadership teams generally recognise the need to deliver digital transformation. However, there is much less confidence in their ability to actually deliver it – particularly in the public sector. Only 12% of public sector respondents are ‘completely confident’ that their leadership team can deliver digital transformation.
