It’s a great time—for anyone—to launch a cloud computing caree

Cloud computing is a hot sector in IT right now, and many companies can’t hire enough workers to fill cloud roles. In this Knowledge Short, David Linthicum gives advice to anyone seeking to move into cloud computing as a career. David’s take is that no matter where you’re starting from—a college student or recent graduate, a non-IT worker looking to change careers or an IT professional looking to shift gears—you can find your path to cloud and a successful, often lucrative, career.


You're moving to technology that people are only starting to leverage. And in many instances, you're changing an enterprise to move that enterprise.

As the chief cloud strategy officer, David Linthicum is responsible for building innovative technologies that help clients operate more efficiently while delivering strategies that enable them to disrupt their markets.

Doing cloud correctly requires a cloud enabled workforce

Cloud adoption is accelerating, and it's changing IT. Smart companies will reconfigure their workforce to meet those changes.

Break through the bureaucracy to speed digital transformation

Digital transformation is often hobbled by bureaucracy. According to AWS's Mark Schwartz, the quickest way to break through the bureaucracy is to wade straight into the quagmire using monkeys, razors, and sumo wrestlers.
