Westcon-Comstor, a Swindon-based information technology company, says research shows that investing just 15 per cent of product investment in training typically results in significant reduction in IT project failure and a higher return on IT investment.

“Technology isn’t just about servers or devices, software or platforms, it’s about how these items are used by people to successfully deliver the required outcome,” the company said.

Companies were urged to invest in a robust learning and development strategy to ensure employees have the knowledge, support and resources they need. “Here at Westcon-Comstor, we see the direct impact of investing in education on company and customer success every day,” it added.
