But IDC also points out that since jobs are being created as a result of increased business revenue from cloud, the jobs will be across the breadth of enterprises, in areas such as marketing, sales, finance and administration, production and service. As of now, imagination is to cross boundaries as to what job titles may emerge through cloud computing. And many non-IT people may have to thank the cloud, at least indirectly, for their opportunities.
IDC is betting that the job creation will be more than 14 million related to cloud. And majority of these jobs will be found in emerging markets - around 10 million will arise in China, India and in Asia-Pacific region. This is mainly due to the immense size of these country's workforces - 1.2 billion workers in China and India alone, the study report observes.
Let's hope cloud computing gets due recognition from as many quarters as possible because of its tremendous potential towards enhancing productivity of an enterprise. NAASCOM is the agency, which can play direct role to encourage as many entrepreneurs as possible to go in for cloud computing in the future. And it is hoped even non IT professionals can get placement opportunities through cloud computing.
