When Amazon starts an initiative to re-train 100,000 people across their organization, you should be paying attention. This isn’t some sort of PR display by Amazon, either. This is based on something they know quite a bit about: The cloud is disrupting how companies implement new technologies and transforming the talent needed to support these new initiatives.
The creation and growth of cloud-native services are not only changing how technology departments are creating new tech, but it’s also changing the entire business landscape altogether. Digital and cloud mean a new normal: No servers to maintain, cheaper cost of service, quicker speed to market. Over the past decade, the cloud has revolutionized the tech-savvy organizations, and now it’s an all-out race to realize the potential upside for all enterprises.
In fact, traditional enterprises don’t have much of a choice but to embrace the cloud. Companies that win today realize they must ditch legacy systems and quickly embrace more agile continuous delivery processes. After all, software builds are now measured in hours, not weeks, and there are multiple deployments a day as development cycles shrink from months to days.
