Important qualifications, experience and/or behaviours

Formal education such as ‘Relevant diplomas’ and ‘University degrees’ are still highly valued; but what is noteworthy is the value placed on ‘Micro credential courses’ and ‘Ongoing continuous learning’ (which includes on-the-job learning). This is indicative of an innovative and fast evolving area where consistent reskilling and right skilling is more constructive for a business than long-term studies. This emphasis on short, practical learning allows for continuous and on-going skills development which ensures businesses keep abreast of technology innovation and development. Considering the vendor market landscape, it is interesting to note that there is little emphasis placed on ‘Vendor accredited programmes’; seeming to indicate that it is not the vendor accreditation that is important but how it is applied in each business environment
