As with all technologies that transform how organizations work, roles are likely to change. Cloud computing has already impacted traditional IT roles and functions and will continue to do so for many years.
Let’s begin our overview of cloud job transformation by looking at the top cloud computing roles available for developers, architects, and engineers. Then, we’ll examine their evolution and then conclude our examination by looking at the new skills required to succeed in these roles. Keep in mind that every company differs.
Cloud Architect
A cloud architect’s primary responsibility is to manage an enterprise’s cloud computing strategy. This role is all about strategy. It involves planning, organizing, and structuring cloud delivery models. It involves the design, implementation and management of migration components. This role is also known by the name technical architect or solutions administrator.
Cloud architects need to be aware that cloud and only clouds are not always the best solutions. This is where private and hybrid clouds come in. If a company has a cloud first strategy, they will likely choose multiple clouds depending on the business challenge.
Cloud architects need to be able to understand multi-cloud environments. It covers more than just the implications for their company. It includes information about the different providers and how to align them to meet business requirements. It is crucial to manage vendors in order to maintain good relationships with all providers.
What else? Let’s just say not all departments are using cloud-based IT solutions. How many architects have been in a position where [INSERT NAMES] from the [INSERT DEPT] calls them and asks for assistance? You replied with a big smile and “Yeah, sure.” Thanks.” It will work seamlessly.” They kept their smiles on their faces until they left.
In all seriousness architects will need to figure out how the product fits in with existing solutions. They will need to engage in full-scale investigation. They will be asking questions like: How does it/will it integrate into our existing system?
What is the system security?
What is the cost structure of [cloud]?

Now we move on to the next set of key considerations: cost planning, security architecture, integration plans, performing due diligence, cost plan, cost planning, and cost planning.
What is your cost strategy? Companies move to the cloud because they want to save money. It is the shift from CapEx funds to OpEx funds that we know. Cloud Engineer
Cloud engineers are multi-disciplinary roles that manage the company’s cloud capabilities. This role focuses on the implementation and management (IaaS/PaaS, and SaaS), of cloud service delivery models. This role is also known as Cloud Operations engineer, Systems cloud engineer, or simply Cloud engineer. This could be the network engineer, operations engineer, or even the position of systems administrator. This is one of those positions that we have mentioned previously as “blurred line”, so be ready for cloudy skies and lightning. (Sorry, but the cheese–a is not available.
