Cloud Skills Needed, Yesterday

A recent Microsoft survey of 250 executives finds cloud skills at the top of many priority lists. A majority, 57%, agree that having the right cloud skills is critical to their organizations' digital transformation. The survey finds that 38% of those who had been involved in recruiting people with cloud skills in the past 12 months said it was difficult to find the right skills.

Where gaps exist, companies are looking to close that gap by a combination of three methods: retraining their existing staff (60%), using external partners (53%), and recruiting new people with cloud skills (48%).
