With the largest economy in Europe, and often at the head of digital developments in industry, Germany consistently suffers a shortage of IT staff. The German Federal Association for Information Technology (Bitkom) found in early 2016 that around 60% of German businesses are short of IT staff; a total of 43,000 unfilled vacancies. Software specialists in fields such as cloud computing, data analytics, and app development are in particular demand.
Germany and the UK together account for half of Europe's IT industry, and IT staff are among the largest beneficiaries of the 75,000 work permits (formerly called green cards) issued each year by each of these countries.
