“On-premises or in the Cloud? With these niches and the specialty and when people talk about Cloud services, it’s kind of basically taking things away from in-house, on-premises, on property.
How is that going to affect an IT person looking for a job? It’s not going to affect the job market at all. I mean, IT is becoming more specialized. Like how we were saying things are becoming more niche. Well, companies are adapting and the big cloud providers I mean, you’ve got Azure, you’ve got Google. you’ve got AWS, and all of these companies that are starting to understand, and so what they’re doing is they’re creating certifications.
So you still have your DevOps team, but your DevOps team doesn’t have to be on site. You don’t have to have your servers on-site, so it’s kind of the best of both worlds. so, no, it’s not really being affected, but you are going to have to be certified more and understand and know exactly what to do.”
