In the age of digital transformation, companies are facing the great challenge of no longer finding enough qualified IT specialists on the labour market to cope with the increasing demands. At the end of 2017, the digital association Bitkom had around 55,000 vacancies for IT experts. This represents an increase of 8 percent compared to the previous year. In addition, there is a lack of financial resources that further support the lack of resources.
The overstrained IT departments are thus faced with grown IT system landscapes and shadow IT, which should be eliminated as soon as possible.
