IT services companies should focus more on skill management in the wake of increased automation across businesses, said Milind Govekar, Chief of Gartner's Infrastructure & Operations Research. With more businesses shifting operations to the cloud and seeking faster application development, creating a “skills lifecycle management programme” is as important as having technology strategy, said the expert at IT research firm.  “In the short term they absolutely have to plan skills lifecycle management programme. If you look at most of these companies they invest a lot in technology strategy but they do not invest at all in talent strategy,” Govekar told ET in an interview.  He said the digital transformation across organisation has a direct impact on the outsourcing model and it is disrupting skills market.
