Introduction.

Organizations can bridge the talent gap and enhance their agility by augmenting their cloud skills and strategies to remain competitive in a dynamic, ever-changing marketplace.

The technology paradigm has shifted, and IT is no longer looked upon as a cost center but now rather an innovator of new technology that can change the way a business operates or can be leveraged to increase the quality of business products and services.

The time is ripe for business leaders to embrace cloud solutions and invest in their employees’ cloud training. Given the fast-paced nature of the business ecosystem at present, it is clear that the technology model has changed, and IT is no longer seen as a cost center, but rather as an innovator in innovative technology that can transform the way a company works or can be leveraged to enhance the efficiency of a company’s products and services.

In order to achieve this new paradigm shift, IT professionals must change their mindset on how IT services and infrastructure are deployed, maintained and protected. A network is still a network, but there are many ways to get to your destination in the cloud.

The New Normal .

As cloud technologies become the new normal, organizations are looking to accelerate cloud adoption to remain competitive in their markets. But do they have right skills in place to properly leverage this?

To reap the benefits of the cloud, including big savings in infrastructure spending, organizations must invest in their employees by training up their employees in the latest cloud competencies.

IT requirements are evolving at a rapid pace beyond what people in charge of these systems can manage.

“31% of ITDMs admitted to the challenge in adopting cloud. The organizations need to train people in key roles such as cloud architect, cloud system admin, security architect, cloud systems engineer, and cloud network engineer.”

The reality: just 56% of cloud executives have had an actionable strategy in cloud solutions to empower their employees

However, one of the stumbling blocks that emerges with handling the complexities of the cloud is the absence of preparation regarding staff training. Robert Half’s research found that a positive learning atmosphere at work resulted in 30-50 percent higher employee retention.

To reap the benefits of the cloud, including big savings in infrastructure spending, organizations should invest in their employees by training them in the latest cloud competencies.

The Value of Cloud Training and Certification

Cloud competence, evaluated through certifications and training, is obviously continuing to grow in benefit for both organizations and employees who work for these businesses. Adoption of cloud solutions and training doesn’t only give organizations competitive edge, it also contributes to increased employees career growth, potentially increasing attraction and profitability in the workplace.

Cloud training can be the most significant investment you undertake in the pursuit to remain competitive. But just like any cloud strategy, empowering your company should start by establishing that your existing staff already know your business, the nature of your organization, and the framework of control. That’s probably the most prominent piece of knowledge in a transformed environment. With that base in place, learning of cloud skills is now a simplified strategy that draws on what employees inherently know, with processes in place to disseminate information. Non-IT infrastructure companies may not have a level of understanding needed to deploy educational programs that bring IT professionals up to speed adequately.
