The Indian Institute of Technology in Roorkee (IIT-Roorkee) and an online learning solution provider have collaborated to launch postgraduate (PG) certification in cloud computing and DevOps. The programme is designed to equip learners with a repertoire of skills required to build a career in any of the numerous fields associated with cloud computing.

The last date to apply for the programme is 25 August, and the seven-month-long programme will provide full-fledged training on relevant cloud skills. According to a news report, the first batch of the programme is set to commence in the second week of September. An official claimed that a profession in cloud has a bright future ahead. Cloud computing and DevOps have witnessed a steady increase in their demand across workplaces and industries. It will continue to grow. To cater to this demand, it is critical to train aspiring candidates and learners so that they are ready to conquer the workplaces of the future.

Early-stage professionals with at least two years of experience, knowledge of computer systems, programming and debugging, and proficiency in a minimum of one language, are eligible for this programme. On the successful completion of the course, a joint certificate from the private provider and IIT-Roorkee will be provided.

A representative of the online learning solution provider noted that owing to the advantage of its demographic dividend, India has a great potential in fulfilling the demand for skilled IT talent. This requires extensive training and skilling of the existing talent and workforce. Today, aspirants with niche digital skills are most sought-after in the booming IT industry. With the new programme, the partnership aims to open doors to new avenues of growth and opportunities for skilled talent in the country.

The global cloud computing market size is projected to reach US$791.48 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.9% during the forecast period. Cloud computing has emerged as one of the most competitive skills, especially in information technology. With the COVID-19 pandemic, more businesses are migrating to virtual operations for secure, cost-effective, reliable, and scalable technology services. They are also investing heavily in cloud infrastructure. According to a report, the demand for cloud computing jobs has grown by 42%.

Last month, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) collaborated with a tech giant to launch a Hybrid Cloud lab to advance research in hybrid cloud technologies and drive breakthrough innovations in the area. Located at the IISc campus in Bengaluru, students, and faculty across departments of the institute will work alongside the company’s research scientists to conduct cutting-edge research that can help organisations leverage the true power of the hybrid cloud by enabling the faster and more secure adoption of hybrid cloud and AI.

As OpenGov Asia reported earlier, the lab will bring together a community of scientists, faculty, and students, to solve research challenges that enterprises face today, in scaling the adoption of cloud computing across industries. The lab will engage not just with academia, but also the broader open-source community for wider adoption and acceleration of innovation. The lab will start with an initial set of projects. The projects include building autonomous, self-healing computing systems that use AI to predict emerging issues, diagnose and heal faults while maximising availability and minimising the cost of operations. Also, adopting microservices and optimisation of cloud-native applications that leverage and advance cloud-native technologies such as Kubernetes and serverless. This will enable enterprises to bring substantial agility into their IT services and drive new cloud-enabled business models.

The value derived from a hybrid, multi-cloud platform technology and operating model at scale is 2.5 times the value derived from a single platform, single cloud. Hence, businesses are increasingly investing in hybrid multi-cloud platform capabilities to unlock value and drive business transformation.
