MetadataShow full item record
This article makes an assessment of Argentina's human resource skills in the field of information technology (IT);. In various of the country's government, business and academic domains the quality and potential of domestic human resources in this area is taken for granted- a belief based on the country's rich, yet contradictory IT history, but not founded on an analysis of the corresponding skills. This study aims to develop and apply a methodology to evaluate the skills of IT workers and highlight their problems and potentials, using the results of an electronic survey. The current features and heterogeneity of those human resources are interpreted in the light of the progress and setbacks experienced by the activity during the course of its evolution.
