Rise of Internet of Things Stretches Demand for Specialist IT Contractors


Professional services consultancy Procorre is warning of a shortfall in the number of IT consultants available across Europe to advise on projects relating to rise of the Internet of Things (IoT).

As increasing numbers of organisations outside the technology sector consider adopting IoT strategies, the demand for skilled consultants to manage the transition has increased significantly. However, Procorre, which manages the life cycle of IT projects around the world, is predicting that the surge in demand could outstrip supply across Europe in the coming months.

The escalating hype around IoT – where devices connect over the internet to other devices, application and users – has been matched only by the rapidly increasing number of devices themselves, which outnumber the global population by 15:1. The data harvested from these connections is expected to fundamentally change the way businesses operate with a potential economic impact of up to US$11 trillion per year by 2025, according to the McKinsey Global Institute.
