SA’s flourishing data centre industry has led to increased demand for cloud computing skills and the desperation to fill the digital skills gap.

Analysts said the combined impact of several local and international companies launching data centres in South Africa has fuelled a strong demand for cloud computing skills, while further compounding the skills shortage needed.

According to an IDC study, the cloud ecosystem will create around 112 000 new jobs in South Africa by 2022. “Spending on public cloud services in South Africa would nearly triple from R4.29 billion in 2017 to R11.53 billion in 2022 and the adoption of cloud services would generate nearly 112 000 new jobs in SA by the end of 2022.”
