Cloud & Career > Opportunities & Risk

Cloud Career Icon.jpg

Predictions for the future of cloud computing hold that cloud and related technologies will have a profound impact on the way we do business. It will provide an opportunity for companies to reinvent their business models and the way they engage with their customers and partners.

But what about their employees? In other words, what about YOU?

How do you make yourself “cloud relevant” in today’s job environment?

The SAP Cloud Social media team has started a blogging program that will explore how the cloud is impacting jobs across many disciplines (Lines of Business) as well as Industries.

We are collecting these opinion pieces in a centralized resource, the #CloudCareer Central, where you can sort contributions according to Industry and line of business (LoB) as well as by author and organization.

The blogs are classified by one of the following topics:

Suggested questions for the experts:

  • Which industries/LoB are the most impacted by cloud computing and why?
  • How is the cloud changing your job or jobs in your company?
  • Which new job opportunities are being created?
  • Are any jobs at risk?
  • Which skills do you need?
  • What are the education options?

Feel free to let us know which industry and or LoB you are particularly interested in and we will reach out to an expert.

If you would like to submit a blog (could be on SCN, Ariba, SuccessFactors or 3rd party), then please contact  Schalk Viljoen to have the blog listed in the #CloudCareer Central.

      Hi Olivier, to start we are collecting opinions from various thought leaders.

      This should make it posible for you as e.g. a Finance professional(LoB) in the Retail industry, to see how Cloud could impact your career.

      If you cannot find an insight into your particular LoB/Industry, then you request as a comment or via email and we will find an expert.

      As we collect these opinions (in the form of blogs etc.), we will analyze the results and provide insights in the form of infographics, summary blogs and or tweet chats or webinars.
