I thoroughly enjoyed joining Computing to discuss the cloud skills gap and what this means for businesses. It was an interesting and thought-provoking discussion which provided some suggestions on how to hire the right talent, whether that’s to support new cloud initiatives, or managing those already underway. A few key takeaways from me:
- Multi-Cloud skills are the biggest challenge for organisations when considering adopting cloud technologies, therefore we need to think about how we are training our future employees for tomorrow’s technologies
- A cloud talent strategy starts with understanding the demand that is coming from the business units, and should be a conversation for the whole businesses, not just the IT team
- Being able to afford the right skilled person for the job, or trying to entice people into an industry that isn’t ‘sexy’ are the main reasons recruiting and retaining the right talent is a challenge.
Feel free to have a watch of the on-demand webinar as featured above, I hope you enjoy the discussion as much as I did!
