Cloud professionals have 'all-encompassing roles,' says exec
Some of the "must-know" items are software development, telecoms, network security, risk management and information security, preferably also knowledge of the legal and regulatory requirements, plus a string of other soft skills.
According to Bradley Miller, managing director of recruitment agency Spring Professional, North East Asia, “cloud professionals” assume an encompassing role like a project manager but generally report directly to the CEOs.
"Cloud professionals" are currently in hot demand in the region and their pay packages vary according to their company size. Here is a yardstick given by Spring Professional: for a 2,000-people large corporate business in North Asia, that company may probably be paying HK$1.5 million ($193,251) per annum to cloud professionals, who had gained experience in implementing large scale cloud solutions in large corporates.
Clients are looking to recruit cloud professionals in all three offices to work with systems like relationship management, databases, and data management, which turn data collected from clients into future sales solutions.
