Over the last few years, it has brought about changes that are meaningful and beneficial to the corporate world. As we look into the future, it is likely that more and more corporates will evaluate their current IT topography and move more into a SAAS (Software As A Service) based model, which is driven by the Cloud platform and technology. This not only ensures cost savings but removes redundant hardware. This means that corporations need to restructure their internal IT needs and deployment strategy. They would require resources with a deep understanding of Cloud (private & hybrid) technology to be implemented in their data centers. Cloud infrastructure specialists will be much sought after and will be in high demand as they will be required to move data in and out of their data centers and remove the inherent latency in cloud-based applications.
There will be a tremendous need for professionals who will be able to understand and implement various ERP applications, as well as manage data and various security aspects around it. Further, the course will show how to map various applications within the business process. Project managers within the IT space will be the need of the hour since they will be required to implement more systems with less internal IT resources. Further data integration will demand professionals who understand the management of multiple cloud-based vendors that causes data silos, which need to be integrated into a cohesive data model.
