A new survey by the International Data Corporation (IDC) has shown that around 60% - 80% of APAC organizations find it difficult or extremely difficult to fill vacancies in many IT roles including security, developers, and data professionals.

As a result, 37% of organizations in the AP region had to postpone their technology-related initiatives, while 36% had to alter the direction of their technology initiatives.
