The pace of technology is relentless, and IT professionals face the continual challenge of staying on top of the latest trends and evolving technologies while continuing to do their jobs. Many companies are finding that the workers they have are not necessarily the workers they need as technology advances. The result is an "IT skills gap" that organizations are trying to remedy, according to a recent survey, "The State of the IT Skills Gap," from CompTIA. The study reveals that this gap is impacting productivity and other day-to-day operational needs. Many organizations are attempting to resolve the issue with improved training for their IT staff.
