How to overcome the skills crisis in app development

Juniper Research forecasts that total revenues from mobile apps are on track to reach $99 billion by 2019. However, many predict that the skills crisis in mobile app development could hinder this growth as demand for skills is outstripping capabilities in many organisations. Robert Half, a leading UK IT recruitment firm, recently claimed that increased demand for mobile apps has made it harder for companies to recruit candidates with mobile app development skills. Candidates are in short supply because good app developers need both technical skills and softer business skills - an elusive combination.
Technically, mobile app developers need experience in app development across the major platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone). They also require experience of coding with Mobile Frameworks such as Xcode, Android SDK, and or Windows Phone App Studio.
