Mendix is part of Siemens and recently announced the results of the Dutch study of the international study “Low Code Prediction for 2021”. The study found that among the 4.5 million full-time employees in the Netherlands, 1.8 million are potential low-code developers.
The study also shows that 77% of Dutch employees want to develop new digital skills. Currently, only 6% of people actively participate in it. The main reasons why employees do not develop new digital skills are their satisfaction with the current skill level (35%) and lack of time (21%).
83% of respondents said that you will never be too old to learn new digital skills. Age does not have to play a role in retraining or further training for IT positions. Armed with this knowledge, 57% of respondents hope to contribute to the digitalization of the organization.
