Cloud technology has changed the landscape of organisations of all sizes.
In an industry as competitive as IT, employees need to have a variety of skills and be multi-faced and versatile in the cloud sector. PC World gathered the opinions of a number of thought leaders within the industry to comprise a list of Cloud Computing skills that can make or break your IT career. These were the three that stood out to us:
Know your information security
Protecting sensitive information is a major concern for all businesses, both utilising the cloud and traditional IT solutions. Having knowledge of the evolving threats and how to prevent a company being hacked is a valuable and irreplaceable skill to have.
Through the cloud, one of the major benefits received is mobility, therefore it’s important that any IT professional understands BYOD. Smartphones, laptops and tablets are clearly here to stay and you need to be able to help employees work from them, on the move.
Build your knowledge base
Knowledge of the company that you work for and the company you are supplying your solution to is extremely important. If you’re competent in a variety of skill sets and know your customer inside out, it is a sure way to accelerate your career and provide your customers with the best cloud solutions.
