Demand for AWS and Azure skills on the rise as cloud adoption grows


"Demand for engineers with skills relating to Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft's Azure platform has seen the most growth in the IT jobs market over the past year, according to hosting firm Rackspace.

Cloud adoption by organisations of all sizes is picking up pace, and IT professionals who can help companies build a cloud-based services portfolio and integrate these with existing infrastructure are in high demand.

Rackspace said in a research report analysing the IT skills most in demand in the UK that vacancies relating to AWS expertise increased by 53% in the past year, while jobs specifying Microsoft Azure experience increased by 75%.

This rising demand for these skills is a clear indication of the growing value of both platforms, and organisations need experts to help them tailor off-the-shelf solutions and maximise the benefits of migrating to the cloud, Rackspace said.”
