The training offer is insufficient to cover the professional demands on the Internet of Things

The Cotec Working Group on the Internet of Things (IoT), led by Indra, has carried out an analysis of the training offer in this area and has generated a report that shows a gap between the needs of companies and the supply of educational systems.

The current training offer of the national educational system is insufficient to cover the professional demands in the area of Internet of Things (IoT). This is the main conclusion of the analysis carried out by the Cotec Work Group on IoT, led by Indra, and launched last year with the goal to analyze the need for training and skills for the full use of the Internet of Things.

Today’s report at Cotec on the analysis of educational supply and Spanish business demand in IoT indicates that an exponential growth is expected within the next few years in this area. In 2020, it is anticipated that there will be more than 20 billion connected smart devices with a global economic impact of 2.9 billion euros. In addition, companies consider IoT a key element for the development of the digital transformation and 61% of the respondents in this study understand that companies that delay the integration of IoT will not be competitive.
