The Expanding Knowledge Needs in the Age of Technology
As all areas of business move into digital technology, Ramesh Subramanian explains why the digital transformation requires infrastructure engineers to expand their software skills.
Several years ago I started my career as a C++ programmer but to be relevant as a software engineer today would require many more software engineering skills. The same logic holds for Infrastructure engineers.
About 94% of enterprises (and 50% of Governments) use some form of cloud (private/public) today. And as per an estimate from Forbes, 83% of workloads will be in the cloud by the end of this year. These stats imply that infrastructure teams should be ready to:
Meet expectations of faster release cycles, with several releases per day becoming the norm
Provide application access at scale (millions of concurrent sessions, potentially across the globe) with 24×7 availability
However, only 30% of all infrastructure teams are using DevOp. This is even lower at 12% for Financial Services firms.
