Hybrid cloud computing will lead to a change in IT skill sets, one specialist has suggested.
Morgan Stanley’s global head of data centres Michael O’Toole claimed at the DataCentres Europe 2013 conference that the hybrid model provides the best mix of security, access and staff productivity.
V3 has reported Mr O’Toole as saying: “The face of IT departments is going to change. They will need to become a lot more commercially focused and have people who understand service levels, procurements, outsourcing and relationship building, rather than just using technology in silos and as components for putting systems together.”
He went on to say that hybrid cloud technology will result in roles such as cloud architects.
Mr O’Toole admitted that it could be up to five years before there is strong demand for such abilities, though he believes future generations will be able to deal with such problems.
As cloud technology advances, so will security capabilities, and businesses need to be equipped with top data recovery software to protect them in the event of information going missing.
