According to the Nasscom report, with an installed base of 608,000 cloud talent as of FY2021, the number of open positions for cloud computing stood at 265,000, an unmet demand of 30 percent.

The need for businesses to migrate critical workloads to the Cloud and modernize legacy on-premise IT infrastructure, especially post the pandemic, has been accelerating growth in cloud adoption.

As businesses try to build resilience and adaptability, cloud adoption has been rising multifold since the past few years. The adoption was further fuelled by the pandemic with organizations actively seeking professionals with the hands-on experience to build cloud and manage cloud apps.

According to a Nasscom report, India today ranks third with an installed capacity of 608,000 (FY2021) cloud professionals across all verticals including technology. However, the demand for cloud solutions is growing exponentially, both in India and worldwide, leading to a higher demand for cloud talent as well. India saw about 380,000 job openings for Cloud roles in 2020, a 40% growth over 2019.
