These days, being involved in IT almost invariably means using the public cloud. According to Synergy Research Group, cloud spending likely exceeded $97 billion for 2019, topping the $93 billion spent in data center hardware and software for the first time ever. And while Amazon Web Services (AWS) continues to dominate with just under 40% of the public cloud market, Microsoft Azure has been steadily gaining ground. In fact, Azure has climbed from less than 10% of the market at the beginning of 2016 to nearly 20% of the market in the third quarter of 2019.
Perhaps it's not surprising then that demand for Azure skills climbed 1,107% between 2014 and 2019. And last year, 6.9% of all Indeed.com job postings mentioned Azure.
