Abstract

This dissertation set out to attempt to answer the question of whether a skills shortage is prevalent in the Software Industry in Ireland. The author employed quantitative and qualitative research techniques in order to ascertain the existence and extent of this shortage.
A survey was conducted of multinational and indigenous software companies for the purpose of examining the seriousness of the situation and also to establish what coping strategies, if any were adopted. The majority of the companies surveyed believe they are facing a shortage of suitably qualified staff.
