Cloud computing expected to create more IT jobs

Karl Flinders

Cloud computing will create more job opportunities according to 40% of IT professionals, and nearly three-quarters think cloud computing skills will make them more employable.

According to a survey of more than 1,300 IT professionals carried out by CWjobs most IT workers had to learn new skills.

Only 28% of those interviewed thought cloud computing would mean fewer jobs.

Richard Nott, website director at CWJobs said, "It is encouraging to see that IT professionals recognise the career opportunities emerging from the rise of cloud computing. However, confusion evidently surrounds how candidates can best bolster their CVs for these opportunities.

"While it is not yet clear which specific skills will be useful for cloud computing, the majority of IT professionals do believe there will be a need to adapt to capitalise on the changing IT landscape, and that now is the time to do this."

Opportunities exist in the end user and supplier communities. Companies such as Capgemini, Steria, Fujitsu, Wipro and Infosys are creating cloud services.

Cloud computing could be a way for organisations to cut significant costs. The UK government has been trialling its use in the public sector through the G-cloud.

Here are some jobs in cloudcomputing.
