Skills shortages are keeping business leaders up at night.
In fact, nearly half of executives say this skills gap is a major concern for the future of their organization — yet only 3% are significantly increasing training budgets.
Why? Workplace learning is a difficult nut to crack. Organizations often struggle to reskill their adult workforces with hard skills because they’re taking the wrong approach.
In this white paper, we take a look at why soft skills are not only integral for the future of work, but why they’re actually necessary for developing hard skills too.
You’ll also learn:
? How soft skills can lead to dramatic shifts in how people think
? How soft skills improve our ability to learn
? The most important skill for the 21st century — and how it can boost learning by 30%
Discover why empowering your people with soft skills is critical to unlocking the future success of your business.

Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.

Closing the communication gap around security and digital transformation:
According to a recent report, 95% of CIOs expect cyber-threats to increase over the next three years. But, despite cybersecurity being front of mind for board members and IT decision-makers, many admit they do not have an appropriate security strategy in place.
In this eBook we will:
• Discuss why organisations do not have a strategy in place for cybersecurity, despite the board and ITDMs recognising it as a key priority
• Explore the challenges ITDMs face communicating with the board about organisational priorities and skills disconnect
• Reveal what ITDMs can do to help close the looming 'security strategy gap' that is widening day by day, and could be detrimental to the organisation's cloud security
Download our eBook now to learn how to close the security gap in your organisation.
Ask the average business user what they know about Business Intelligence (BI)
and data analytics, and most will claim to understand the concepts. Few, however,
will profess to know how analytics works or to have the skills needed to put it
into practice. Despite being knowledgeable about their industry and experienced
in running their organizations, the majority of business users lack expertise in
analytics and visualization techniques—but that doesn’t stop them from wanting
to have a go.
This situation has led to ease of use and accessibility becoming the main focus
for recent updates from all the leading BI vendors—but making tools easier and
more widely accessible is only part of the answer.
A better approach is to work both sides of the gap. To make tools that can
empower business users to discover and unlock value in their data—and that
extend capabilities for experts, so they can share the analytics workload, improve
efficiency, and focus on higher level work.

The cloud was supposed to open the floodgates of innovation. The reality, however, is that even in the cloud era, IT spends most of its time on routine maintenance. Discover how IT can spend less time operating and more time innovating by confronting the skills gap.
Enterprises understand that greater efficiency, improved time-to value, and new opportunities can be gained by using cloud platforms; automating and accelerating their IT delivery; and putting technology to work in new ways to digitally transform their business. The difficult question is how to create an organization that is able to deliver these innovations. Skilled resources do exist, but they command high salaries and are in short supply. In fact, 70% of respondents to a recent Computing survey stated that their companies face a shortage of cloud skills. While bringing in experienced staff who can guide and lead new initiatives is often a necessity, it’s vital to concurrently train your existing staff and adopt solutions that narrow the gap between the realities of the present and the hopes for the future.

Everyone wants to win, not everyone knows how.
Winning isn’t only important for top executives but for everyone — from the boardroom to the mailroom — who wants to get ahead and help his or her organization. The two are intertwined. For an individual, winning is personal. In the business world, winning is multidimensional. The successful salesperson, for example, helps not only himself but also his company and everyone connected with it.
