The Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey is the world’s largest survey of IT leadership. Initial results of the 2017 report have just been released with one of the key findings that enterprise architecture is the fastest growing tech skill in demand.
“The proportion of organizations surveyed that have enterprise-wide digital strategies increased 52 percent in just two years…To help deliver these complex digital strategies, organizations also report a huge demand for Enterprise Architects – the fastest growing technology skill this year, up 26 percent compared to 2016,” says the Harvey Nash/KPMG website.
While the fastest growing demand for a technology skill this year was enterprise architecture, big data/analytics remained the most in-demand skill at 42%, up 8% on last year.
Further, 64% of respondents say the political, business and economic environment is becoming more unpredictable with the top answer for managing it to create a more nimble technology platform (52%).
