Unlocking growth: Strategies for IT organizations in the face of rising demands

John Yoho, COO at HGS, discusses the increasing demands being placed on IT organizations and strategies for how to take advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead.

IT organizations increasingly find themselves at the forefront of change in a transition from cost-saving entities to critical drivers of innovation and business growth. According to Gartner, IT spending is expected to surge by 6.8% in 2024, underscoring the pivotal role of IT in organizational advancement. Yet this growth is juxtaposed against a looming talent shortage, with current projections indicating a deficit of 1.2 million IT professionals by 2026. In this current landscape, IT organizations must devise sound strategies to help bridge the gap between the growing opportunity and an expanding talent shortage.

The rapid pace of change in areas like cloud, software development, automation, analytics, and AI demands a workforce equipped with specialized skills and expertise. Yet, the traditional model of permanent hiring can sometimes fall short in addressing brands’ specific needs. Enter the paradigm shift: the rise of experts on demand, or contract IT staffing, paving the way for a new era of flexibility and efficiency in talent acquisition.
