Essentially, when working in the field of Cloud Computing, one is supporting companies to migrate their information and services into the cloud. It is vital that there are no interruptions in services during this migration. Analysis of the company’s needs is required to ensure the appropriate cloud technology is selected.
Other responsibilities can involve providing design input, collaborating with customer service and analysts on project milestones, and analyzing deficiencies and recommending system upgrades. As a cloud computing specialist, it is a must to be able to effectively weigh the potential risks of IT solutions against company IT needs.
