How Mecer Inter-Ed and Microsoft can help bridge the skills gap

Mecer Inter-Ed makes it easy for companies to earn Microsoft certifications with its excellent training solutions.

With widespread digitisation leading to an increase in cybercrime and, by extension, demand for IT professionals, these courses are therefore ideal for all businesses.

The importance of these certifications cannot be understated, particularly at a time when demand for key IT skills continues to rise.

It has become a key imperative for CIOs to hire, develop, and retain high-quality talent, but the speed of change in the technology industry is making this a big challenge, as it is difficult for IT departments to grow their skills base as fast as their business’s needs evolve.

MIE is dedicated to helping CIOs conduct regular skills audits that uncover which skills their organisations lack or will need in the future.

Cybersecurity professionals are key to preventing and mitigating the risk of ever-evolving cyberattacks, and by 2025 it is expected that the demand for cybersecurity professionals will have doubled.
