Lost knowledge

In its Talent Priorities for the Digital Enterprise report, Gartner stated that “leading IT executives will focus on growing the share of IT employees who have non-traditional backgrounds”; those that add to IT’s blend of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.

It’s estimated that 4.2M new roles will be created in the Salesforce ecosystem by 2024. But will businesses be able to fill those roles? What happens when all these businesses are lining up to fish from the same pond; a pond that is incapable of restocking its talent at the same rate it’s being snapped up?
