Break Your Own Terms for IT Talents

While technology evolution impacts on all kinds of business activities, enterprises are locked in with insufficient IT talents and cannot move swiftly and flexibly. Many management officers say “People is the Biggest Management Assets,” but ironically people is becoming the biggest barrier against digital transformation.

The IT talent issue is sometimes treated as just simply staffing or enhancement of individual skills. However, only with such outside-in actions, this issue cannot be solved. The nature of this issue is rather than in incomplete visions for IT strategies, investments, organizations, sourcing or other inside-out factors.

In this summit, we set “IT talents for the digital age” as its main theme, highlight various problems behind the scenes and explore “solution breakthroughs” which IT leaders should turn into action right now.
