How Software Outsourcing Helps Solve the IT Skills Gap

The demand for technical and IT jobs has increased. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment in computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. These occupations are projected to add about 667,600 new jobs.

However, the number of available experienced IT talent is too few to fill in the rising demand. The auditing firm KPMG and IT outsourcing service provider Harvey Nash surveyed over 3,000 technology leaders for their annual CIO Survey, and found that an astonishing 65% said that hiring challenges are hurting the industry.

The demand for Software Developers, Quality Assurance Analysts, Programmers and Testers, for instance, is also expected to increase in the following years.

The outlook for employment in software development is forecasted to rise by 22%, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Software outsourcing lets you solve the IT and software development staffing challenge. Through software outsourcing, businesses can work with technical experts in innovative product and software development, enterprise management and related services.

In fact, around 64% of all companies outsource software development. About 51% of technology executives say they outsource application and software maintenance, and 40% offshore their data centers. In addition, more than 44% of chief intelligence officers noted they are now more likely to employ overseas services.
