The shift to cloud platforms, and the strategic and tactical challenges it presents orgs, is driving a huge sea change in cloud infrastructure ops. Gartner 2022 report, “The Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services Skills I&O Teams Require for the Future,” says that traditional I&O skills (developed to deal with hands-on legacy infrastructure) will be “insufficient for 60% of the operational tasks for which I&O leaders are responsible” through 2022.
I&O leaders who can’t close the cloud skills gap in their teams are going to risk falling behind in a big way.
The routine tasks of modern infrastructure require less administration than legacy equivalents, but they require new skillsets and cultural thinking to maintain and optimize. That means without the right combination of training, tools, and strategies to prepare their teams for accelerated cloud use, I&O staff won’t be able to deliver the innovation their org needs.
The Gartner report covers key trends and recommendations that cloud infrastructure and platform teams can use to close the skills gap, reduce risk, and keep pace. Request a copy today using the form on this page.
