IDC Whitepaper: Technology Analysts Predict Widening Cloud Skills Gap for IT

This is a really interesting whitepaper on the topic of Cloud Computing related jobs and their growth in the next couple of years. Interestingly 40% of new jobs should be created in the emerging markets (i.w. CEE/LATAM), which represents even bigger opportunities…

Demand for “cloud-ready” IT workers will grow by 26 percent annually through 2015, with as many as 7 million cloud-related jobs available worldwide, according to an IDC White Paper sponsored by Microsoft Corp. and released today. However, IT hiring managers report that the biggest reason they failed to fill an existing 1.7 million open cloud-related positions in 2012 is because job seekers lack the training and certification needed to work in a cloud-enabled world, according to the IDC White Paper, Climate Change: Cloud’s Impact on IT Organizations and Staffing (November 2012).
