Head in
the Cloud
The Cloud quickly went from new technology to a business necessity. It is an
increasingly integral part of the digital landscape, from start-ups to large-scale
commercial applications. Many businesses maintain a hybrid back-end infrastructure
and services by combining on-premises servers with cloud-based data centers. As
an ever-increasing series of workloads shift to the cloud, from CRM systems to
SQL databases, demand for developers with skills in cloud-based platforms is on the
rise from migration, to data and platform security, database administration and
programming development.
