Shift to cloud requires fresh IT skills

Joab Jackson, IDG News Service | May 5, 2011
As organizations move more of their applications to the cloud, they might find themselves needing skills different from what their system administrators now possess, according to IT executive panel discussions on cloud computing on Wednesday.

"Most of the work going forward will be integration, and architectural in nature. There will be a need for people in all levels who are thinking about a composite world. You have to think about how parts fit, which is an architectural mindset. It's not implementation of a feature, it's architectural in nature," Kelly said in a follow-up interview.

"The maturation of these technologies might lead us to a place where we [will] have less technical people in-house than we currently have," Bouncontri said. "Increasingly, our role will be on solution design. It's a different kind of skillset."
