What about these predictions? I think the one re: shortages of those with cloud-IT knowledge is spot on. Seems to me that many in IT (and yes, I'm generalizing here) would prefer the status quo and would rather not learn new tricks. So instead of pivoting and positioning themselves so that they'll be cloud experts, they're resisting the move to the cloud. In my opinion, those who are willing to be agile and pivot will win big when this space really opens up.

Coffee talk time. Discuss amongst yourselves...;)

You can also argue #cloudcomputing will bring self-employment to a whole new level, based on 2 and 3. Lack of cloud skills isn't surprising. We obviously look at legal education as being behind, but it extends to higher education in general, which is part of the reason for "more science and math, less liberal arts" nonsense. We're still not thinking "balance" but "either/or" which won't be as useful down the road. We need people who can code, and people who can communicate and people who understand both. Why more don't talk about #technicalwriting (which uses both skills, and many others) as a career path and profession, I don't know.
