There’s a shortage of cloud experts

Ary Pleysier - Beach View with Boats - Wikimedia CommonsA report from Global Knowledge surveyed over 11,000 IT staff and businessmen and has found that if you want a job, get know how on cloud computing and on security.

The survey showed that one in five IT decision makers are having trouble finding skilled people for cloud computing.

And two thirds of the people they surveyed reported that organisations have skill shortages and that’s causing delays in product and services development, and resulting in delayed hardware and software deployments.

The survey is confined to the USA and Canada but if you’re an IT professional the average salary is $89,891.

Global Knowledge said that the data shows skills shortages “that provide immense opportunities for those eager to transform their skill sets”.

It’s likely that Western Europe have the same problems – so if you’re looking to make some money, get with it on cloud computing and security.
