For @jonathanmedd – The rise of the dev ops #cloudarchitect aka #cloudangel #HotITskills2014

HDS Blogs: Top Ten IT Trends for 2014- Trend 10.

Mr Medd, finally got round to answering your golden question, i.e. what’s going to be hot IT skills wise for the next few years.

Well, I think this article nails it perfectly. Mr Yoshida talks of cloud architects – these mythical cloud angels that walk amongst mere mortal IT professionals.

A cloud architect / cloud angel / dev ops bod  literally knows everything – IT infrastructure, virtualisation, automation, security, scripting, storage, networking etc. They know how the cloud model/technologies affect everything. They can also articulate this model/technologies to the internal business and/or ‘the client’.

I know this doesn’t mention specific technologies/vendors but I’m sure you’re wise enough to know the major players in each technical area.

Hope this helps?!

MillsHill & bricklayers – please RT – #cloud #virtualisation

A man see’s three bricklayers. He asks each ‘what are you doing’?

Bricklayer #1 says “I’m laying bricks”.

Bricklayer #2 says “I’m earning £10 per hour”.

Bricklayer #3 says “I’m building a beautiful cathedral & one day l’m going to drive past it & point it out to my children and say your dad built that”.

So, the point is – in your current job are you ‘laying bricks’ or ‘building a cathedral’?

Stop ‘bedding down’ in your IT career! #timetokickon #itjobs please retweet

I can’t tell you the number of times over the last few years that I’ve heard the following:

‘Neil, I know my job’s !@#+@@!, I know I could move and get new IT skills / new IT accreditations / more money but in this current economic climate its just too risky. I’ve been in my current job a long time and I’m a known face, …etc etc etc.’

Yeah very sensible outlook you would think – bottom line is people have mortgages & modern lives to finance!

…but things are definitely 100% improving!

New IT skills can be gained, new IT accreditations are being offered, ‘good candidates’ are getting higher salaries, e.g. this has happened this week:

‘…that candidate we interviewed was perfect. Lets not mess about – offer him wants he wants & lets get it done’

‘…thanks for calling. Glad you have. I was going to call you today – I’ve got 4 x jobs that I need you to focus on’

‘…consider us all stations go on recruitment. Get CV’s in!’

‘…our Senior Engineer has nudged me to kick you up the backside & get more CV’s in…’

This is live, on the ground, current UK IT market sentiment!

Maybe its time for you to stick your head over the parapet, take off the risk averse glasses and see what you could achieve?
