Hosting Guru Comments: Up, up and away: cloud salaries are sky-high
“Unless you’ve been living under the proverbial rock for the past year, you know cloud computing is the IT phrase on everybody’s lips.”
“Cloud computing is big business – but just how big, you may not have realised, until you consider what Chuck Hollis has learnt all too well.
Job seekers with cloud-related skills “make between 20 per cent and 40 per cent more in the job market than their non cloud-trained peers,” Hollis says. And he should know: as vice president of global marketing and chief technology officer with information management giant EMC, he has a top-down view of the costs EMC has had to shoulder to get a broad range of cloud-related skills into its workforce of more than 33,000 employees.”
My Take > I think Chuck Hollis has hit the nail on the head. One of the biggest issues facing business today is learning how to consume Cloud Services and what type of cloud services are right for their business. The “Build it and they will come” mentality is not the right approach, as a new high growth industry, we have to educated our customers and even learn a lot more about how our customers want to consume our services.
Another huge problem for large enterprise business, which many small companies won’t face, is how to migrate business data and adapt business processes around cloud services. It’s a great and challenging time to be involved in such a disruptive change in the IT landscape! Your thoughts?
