									IDC Report Says 1.7 Million Cloud-related Job Openings Went Unfilled,
EmploymentCrossing Finds 13,000 Jobs in Cloud Technologies.
Firms currently are struggling to fulfill the cloud-related positions.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2012 -- Pasadena, CA, December 24, 2012 – A new report from
business intelligence firm IDC, published in Forbes (
http://www.forbes.com/sites/joemckendrick/2012/12/21/almost-1-7-million-cloud-related-jobs-went-unfilled-
in-2012-estimate/) says that the IT industry had 1.7 million openings in cloud-related technologies this year that
went unfilled. Job research website EmploymentCrossing.com has also found 13,000 openings in the field.

The reason for all the cloud-computing jobs going unfilled according to the IDC report was that companies
could not find qualified workers. The lack of training and certification among jobseekers were given as the
main reasons by IT hiring managers. Firms currently are struggling to fulfill the cloud-related positions.

The report concludes by stating that existing staff should be retrained for these new jobs and students
encouraged to pursue related IT training and certifications. The overall outlook is also bright for the industry.
The report predicts that almost 7 million new cloud-related jobs will be available worldwide by 2015.

Job research website EmploymentCrossing.com has also found that among the 13,000 cloud-related job
openings that it has tracked down, there are various skill sets and certifications required to get these jobs. Some
of the actual job openings on the site are: Director of infrastructure and cloud operations architecture, cloud
senior network engineer, cloud administrator, cloud storage engineer among others. The site also has managed
to track down around 234,000 IT job openings overall.
