Yet, a lack of skilled persons within the business was one of the main factors that prevented or limited businesses from using Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) such as Cloud technology and Cybersecurity software pre-pandemic1.
During the transformation, technology teams spent countless hours and often unprecedented and untested risks to enable businesses to work from home. Remote access and video conferencing were turned on for everyone and VPNs were put to the side and replaced with more accessible, but security risky public BLOB storage.
Now as technology teams start their return to full-time office work, the systems they support along with their responsibilities are very different to what they once were.
With server rooms now half empty or turned off, an abundance of desktops now replaced by laptops and project plans which no longer have any relevance, the post-COVID world has had a significant impact on the daily grind.
Navneet Kumar, Cloud SME and Technical Manager at Koenig Solutions tell us, “With the landscape rewritten and everything from monitoring systems, maintenance and service requirements all redesigned, the skills needed for teams to do their jobs has changed substantially.”
“Now more than ever, IT teams need to be trained in order for them to support their amazing efforts undertaken during the great digital transformation of 2020/21 and ensure that best practices are configured to protect customer data and their business.”
Navneet suggests that there are a few roles that will specifically benefit from Cloud-based learning and suggests the people who would benefit most from learning best practice implementation and configuration would be “System Administrators, Developers, Data Engineers, Solution Architects and Security Operations Analysts.”
Koenig Solutions encourages Australian businesses to ensure their staff can continue to support their businesses after returning to the office. The Cloud Security certification training provides a perfect mix of various learning paths from different vendors, including Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, ISC2, and Amazon Web Services.
