In 2015, the shortage of ICT workers in Europe is expected to rise to 700,000. This skill gap may have major implications on the IT function in companies. During the 2012 CIO CITY conference commissioner Neelie Kroes invited the 150 CIOs present to work together in a Grand Coalition for ICT Jobs. Business and government will have to sit down together at the table in order to ensure that sufficient IT professionals be trained. This will solve the skill gap, unemployment will decrease, and hopefully be more women will be working in IT functions.
