IT Roles Are Changing – Are You Ready For The Future?

According to Gartner over half of the roles in government IT will be new roles by 2023 that currently do not exist today.

Much of this change and creation of new roles is down to the emergence of cloud.

Although the Gartner survey focuses on government IT, the trend of new roles related to the shift to cloud is something all enterprises will be challenged with in the coming years.

Almost 40% of governments expect cloud services to be the technology area where they will spend the greatest amount of funding in 2019.

This aligns with private sector enterprises who also look to continue their investment in cloud services, spending an average of 24% more on cloud this year than they did in 2018.

Gartner’s annual IT forecast highlighted cloud computing infrastructure and applications as the fastest growing IT spending category, which looks to increase by almost 60% through 2021.

With cloud transformation comes the need for new skills which will result in new or changed roles in any organizations IT infrastructure.

Data center management roles, for example, will decline as a result of this shift, creating opportunities for cloud management roles.

One role being highlighted as a priority in the ongoing shift to cloud services is that of a cloud cost manager.

A recent survey estimated that current wasted cloud spend is about 35% and could be even higher than that.

Enterprises and government IT say that cloud cost optimization and cloud cost management is a priority but very few have addressed this issue.

In fact, over 38% of those asked say they have not introduced new roles in 2018 mostly due to insufficient resources and skills.

That is why Kostner uses AI and Big Data to offer cloud cost management as a service, giving you actionable solutions to optimize cloud spend.

Tracking and acting on the dynamic changes in cloud costs and services is very complex and beyond what is humanly capable.

By using AI, Kostner is able to analyze the millions of possibilities available to find the best possible way to run cloud at optimal costs and tailored to specific needs.

Managing cloud properly is not only time consuming but keeping up with services, price models, consumption offerings, and licensing options can be extremely challenging.

That is why Kostner believes in the formula: AI + BI = CI.

Kostner’s artificial intelligence plus business intelligence makes our cloud intelligence the best way to optimize and manage cloud costs.

Whether you are in the private or public sector, cloud cost optimization should be a priority in order to stay ahead of inflating monthly spend.
