Enterprises Should Be Looking for CloudOps Devs

A major hurdle in the path to deploying cloud-based technologies is skill shortage. It’s a crisis many organizations are struggling with, and it is slackening their cloud progress. The story behind this makes perfect sense. Modern CloudOps isn’t the same as it was in the starting. With the advent of hyperconnectivity, cloud computing is about adopting rapidly to new technologies. That demands high levels of cloud computing skills. The reason that is in short supply is because cloud professionals are on a steep learning curve. They are upskilling as the industry is evolving. This gap can potentially put a pause on enterprises’ digital transformation projects.

In this On-Premise IT podcast recorded at the recent Cloud Field Day event in Silicon Valley, IT experts Gina Rosenthal, Phoummala Schmitt and Becky Elliott put a finger on what precisely entails CloudOps and what skills enterprises should be looking for.
