Cloud Skills: What Matters to IT, Developers

Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the way the enterprise thinks about information technology. It has also changed how businesses look at and recruit IT and developer talent.

In order to get a better handle on what skills IT professionals and developers need to stay competitive in the cloud era, Enterprise Cloud News spoke extensively with someone who knows the power this technology is having on the industry: Chip Childers.

As the CTO and co-founder of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, Childers has watched as the biggest of the big enterprises have moved to rely more and more on cloud computing for their IT infrastructure. (See Cloud Foundry Foundation Looks to Fill Enterprise Skills Gap.)

At the same time, cloud is making CIOs rethink the types of skills their IT staff and developers need. In many cases, Childers believes companies are willing to retrain their staff if they are willing to relearn new skills. (See Cloud, Digital Transformation Fueling Open Source Job Market.)

Re: Skills No kidding! Skills required for cloud environments are very different. So much has changed since those days.

Skills The skills needed today in a cloud-based world are a bit different than when I was in school learning Windows frameworks. Not long after school a lot of organizations decided to save money by getting off your basic Windows Server platform. The game has changed.
