The universities use very different educational formats in their advanced training programs and offer a combination of online and classroom elements. According to a statement by the University of Ulm , the aim is to enable employees of companies to “recognize and use the potential of digital data to help their company succeed.”

The shortage of skilled workers is indeed currently one of the biggest challenges involved with digital disruption. Almost half of the managers surveyed in Microsoft’s recently published IoT Signals report cite the lack of qualified specialists as an obstacle to the successful completion of IT projects. Companies try to remedy this shortage in different ways, often focusing on the further qualification of their own workforce.
