IDC Research

About the report

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the need for faster digital transformation at the organisation level, as well as urgent development of civic servants’ digital skills across the public sector. A new report from IDC surveying 250 health, government, and education organisations in seven countries across Europe has now illustrated the data behind this need.

Its findings suggest that the lack of digital and technology skills in particular slows down digital transformation. 70 percent of organisations say they are accelerating their move to cloud to deliver digital services. However, 63 percent say a lack of skills and experience is a barrier for their move to cloud.
