Even with the best intentions, automotive companies are struggling to fill cloud skills gaps. Our research found 4 umbrella reasons for this:
- The skills supply isn’t keeping up – because it’s a rapidly evolving space
- People have to unlearn as well as learn – you’re challenging how traditional infra managers have always valued themselves
- To get maximum value from cloud, you need new ways of working – and agile/DevOps are hard to execute
- Cloud skills are perceived as a cost – and recruitment is both difficult and expensive
My 3 favourite bits in the ebook are the matrices/tick-lists for:
- Conducting an “as-is” analysis of the organisation’s cloud skills level and mapping roles to skills requirements
- Planning training pathways
- Steps for embedding new skills and ways of working via a pilot project
