IT professionals see job opportunities in cloud computing

IT professionals see job opportunities in cloud computing
-       40% think cloud computing will mean more IT jobs  -
Despite fears that cloud computing could spell trouble for IT jobs, a recent study by CWJobs.co.uk found that 40% of IT professionals believe the rise of cloud computing will result in more jobs, while only 28% believe it will mean less. In expectation of the career prospects, 70% believe cloud computing skills and experience will make them more employable.
Indicating a difference in expectation and perhaps understanding between generations, IT professionals in their early twenties recognised the opportunities, with 65% stating cloud computing will result in more IT jobs, while just 28% of those in their forties agreed.
The survey of 1,300 IT professionals by CWJobs, the IT jobs specialist, revealed that less than half (44%) believe cloud computing will require specialist skills, however 75% felt they would need to gain new skills and experience to work with the technology, suggesting a lack of understanding around exactly what will facilitate a job in cloud computing.
Richard Nott, Website Director of CWJobs comments: 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.
