64% of Singapore IT personnel lack confidence on new technologies: SolarWinds study finds
A survey by New York-listed IT software management provider, SolarWinds, shows that Singapore's IT personnel are not receiving the right training to best advise their businesses regarding emerging technologies.
The study reveals that 64 per cent of them feel ill-equipped to make informed, strategic decisions about emerging technologies putting many Singapore businesses behind the curve.
These results are part of a wide-ranging survey of 220 Singapore IT decision makers from SMEs to enterprises, across a range of industries.
The survey says companies must start ensuring the IT department is supplied with ongoing resources and training so that they can provide the level of expertise that is expected of them.
SolarWinds Chris LaPoint, says making decisions about emerging technology is not just the role of a C-level executive anymore.
He says IT professionals should be at the heart of every organisation.
