BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says UK IT innovation needs to be nurtured
BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says that UK IT innovation needs to be nurtured if the profession is to reach its full potential and the UK is to compete on a global scale. The lack of a Silicon Valley in the UK means that budding entrepreneurs in the field of Information Technology are at a disadvantage to their American counterparts.
In order to highlight the need, the Institute will take part in this years Lord Mayors Show on Saturday 14 November. The Institute hopes that its presence at the City of Londons iconic event will celebrate the value and importance of the IT profession, as well as showcase the increasing importance of Information Technology in the world.
This follows research commissioned earlier this year by the Institute which found that 60% of UK IT Managers believe that the UKs competitiveness could be transformed by a dedicated IT innovation hub, similar to Silicon Valley in the USA.
