Demand for cloud skills on the rise as leaders look to fight off rising competition

In recent years, the business has witnessed a significant increase in adopting cloud computing services, driven by the need for quick and cost-effective access to vast resources. As a result, there has been a notable increase in demand for professionals skilled in cloud technologies, particularly in senior-level roles.

Data from industry sources indicates that 17% of available cloud jobs are targeted at senior-level individuals, with Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Delhi/NCR emerging as central hubs for such opportunities. This trend underscores the importance of organizations prioritizing fostering a learning ecosystem that encourages experimentation and knowledge-sharing and champions-oriented culture. 

CXOs emphasize the necessity of technical proficiency in leading cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Additionally, expertise in cloud architecture, security, and compliance is deemed crucial to tackling potential risks associated with cloud adoption. Furthermore, industry projections suggest that by the end of 2024, companies aim to allocate approximately 80% of their total IT hosting budget towards cloud spending. This shift in budget allocation reflects a growing recognition of the role of cloud technology in enabling innovation and agility, thereby maintaining competitiveness in the rapidly evolving business landscape. 

As organizations strive to meet the expanding demands of consumers and adapt to changing market dynamics, the importance of cloud technology as a facilitator of innovation becomes increasingly apparent. Bhavesh Goswami, CEO of CloudThat, highlights the significance of cloud technology as a necessity in today’s business space, enabling innovation and agility to meet expanding consumer demands. 

The rising demand for cloud professionals signals a broader shift in business strategies towards embracing cloud technology as a catalyst for transformation and growth.
