Why Read This Report

After a decade of cloud experience, organizations are facing a talent shortage for all cloud-related skills. Although legacy skill sets translate well to new cloud technologies, the cultural leap to evaluate, select, and operate for productivity, system-level efficiency, and workload-specific problem solving is proving to be a challenge. Enterprise attempts to hire and train talent are constantly plagued with poaching by the cloud vendors themselves. This report outlines the steps that infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals should be taking to build cloud talent and protect their organizations from attrition.
