on traditional perks that employees have come to
expect: PTO, health insurance, and maybe a tuition

There was a time when middle managers were seen as fairly expendable. If you needed to cut costs or eliminate layers, managers were the first to get the axe. The realities of today’s environment are changing that, however.

As we keep asking people to “do more with less,” step up to new challenges, and embrace new organizational directions, managers are the ones who have the greatest opportunity to influence the actions on the front lines. They are also critical for helping organizations keep and grow top talent, a particular concern as employee disengagement and turnover rates are costing companies billions of dollars annually.

Cloud is becoming an essential ingredient to a successful IT infrastructure. Recent research by IDC has
identified how the growth of cloud as a computing platform has magnified the importance of cloud skills to
the success of the enterprise. Moreover, it is becoming clear that IT professionals with cloud skills are
strongly influencing both the type of cloud infrastructure and the ultimate pace of adoption of cloud. This
puts IT professionals with cloud skills in the driver's seat of their own career. In fact, IT professionals with
certifications related to cloud development and operations have dramatically more influence over their
organizations' adoption and expansion of cloud services than otherwise similar IT professionals have
over the adoption of other types of technical solutions. Cloud skills accelerate the success and career
path of IT professionals.
The impactful cloud roles are diverse: Multicloud or hybrid cloud management, workload-centric
