A research conducted by the Microsoft-commissioned IDC showed that wide-spread adoption of cloud computing could create up to 14 million new jobs global by the end of 2015 – with more than 1.2 million of these estimated in Europe. Countries that would profit more from the Cloud System are German, UK, France, Italy and Russia. In the Asia Pacific region, the two major countries, China and India, will benefit from this technology.
Commenting on the study, John Vassallo, Vice President EU Affairs at Microsoft said:
“Cloud computing and the explosion in access to technology is impacting the character of work across industries, generating new skills demands, employment and growth opportunities.” “A common misconception is cloud computing is a job eliminator, but in truth it will be a job creator – a major one,” said John F Gantz, chief research officer and senior vice-president at IDC in a statement.
However, with the rise in job opportunities, the standard of education for the IT students has also been increased. The new recruits should know how to use different cloud computing software programs and how different types of clouds work in the real world.
