Cloud represents an enormous opportunity for organizations of every size, in almost every industry, providing them with the speed, flexibility, and scalability they need to remain competitive. With more than 83% of enterprise workloads expected to be on the cloud by 2020, companies are expanding the scope of traditional IT roles by aggressively hiring and developing professionals with the skills to execute on their cloud strategy.
