Q6. Where will organizations find developer talent for hybrid? http://www.via-cc.at...

John Furrier
they have to grow their own talent esp with #MachineLearning and #AI coming down the track hard
Lawrence Hecht
Even Google is doing training/certification for cloud skills now
Bobby Patrick
There is a real skills shortage for cloud native dev. Add in security and there is an even higher labor shortage
Krish Subramanian
Retrain internal people and hire as needed
Peter Burris
35% the developers that know how to do this live within 50 miles of Google; 35% MSFT/Amazon. Future not evenly distributed everywhere else.
yaron haviv
more move to SaaS (less dev & IT), will see more integrated platforms with higher level services (directly used by Dev)
Dave Vellante
@krishnan existing/internal devs are eager to be retrained...in fact it's compulsory to keep them
Rob Peglar
Bingo. Retrain where possible, hire where needed
Bobby Patrick
@furrier totally agree. Making sense of massive injest will be the key competitive adv
Dave Vellante
or at least allow them to auto-train
John Furrier
developer training is job #1 big time
Krish Subramanian
Absolutely. Domain knowledge is key and existing people have an advantage there
Janette Hausler
Million $ question. For larger markets w larger labor pool, hiring and sw dependency. For smaller markets, upskilling and partnering
Niki Acosta
Unicorns! Out of college! And agree-- retrain internal. Having a lay of the land is important. Hard for outsiders to make a dent in large orgs.
Wayne A. Walls
It's already in their organization, they just have to recognize it and let it flourish. External hires will bring it in, but will have some expectations on how things are run.
Peter Burris
strategic cloud development capabilities are a moving target; major challenge for retraining, but has to happen.
Rob Peglar
Extremely important to expose dev and ops to 'the other side' in equal portions. Too many devs today have no idea about what ops does (really), and vice versa. Break down the walls.
yaron haviv
reason we see "Serverless" boom, is that people dont want to mess with infra, take off-the shelf apps or build just the unique value, run faster
Niki Acosta
This is harder said than done. Rackspace had a Cloud Savvy Program. Grassroots.
Peter Burris
How do CS dept's use cloud? I honestly don't know.
Kenneth Hui @rubrikInc HQ
It is easier to find/train developer talent for the cloud than it is to find operations talent.
Niki Acosta
I checked into a Data Scientist Program. Only 60K plus books and fees. oof.
ClearSky Data
@peglarr said it best: "Retrain where possible, hire where needed."
Niki Acosta
@kenhuiny +1 Distributed systems are hard.
yaron haviv
the death of the "components", the rise of the "platforms", DIY is good for startups not Enterprises
Niki Acosta
Retraining isn't as difficult as cultural change. That's the part that is neglected.
Rob Peglar
I am working with a CS dept. right now - they use public cloud routinely, claiming their on-campus IT is 'not agile enough'. Really little different than many enterprises. They also have their undergrads using cloud instances for simple programming projs
Donnie Berkholz
Recruit the lead, train up the team
Bobby Patrick
Here are some definitions/adoption % for hybrid (courtesy 451). It's a multi-cloud world, with Hybrid on the horizon http://www.via-cc.at...

Dave Vellante
love the data - keep it coming
Lawrence Hecht
thx, btw, I had seen this on your blog a while ago
yaron haviv
@bpatrick001Multi-cloud is hard, higher level services (DB, AI, Serverless ..) are not standard
John Furrier
@yaronhaviv agree the latency even with peering still sucks for multicloud according to my "packethead" friends
ClearSky Data
This is right on target. We're expecting similar trends this year: http://www.clearskyd...
Stuart Miniman
and the big opportunity is M&O to make this easier than the way we did things in the past. Can't replace running around a data center fixing issues with bouncing between user interfaces doing similar fire fighting.
John Furrier
All this cloud has me in a fog :-)
Niki Acosta
@furrier Packethead friends!
John Furrier
@nikiacosta that's a complement btw
Niki Acosta
@stu I still keep hearing "single pane of glass!" as utopia.
Stuart Miniman
@nikiacosta nooooo - that is a pain of glass 😱
Niki Acosta
Was on a webinar with @appdynamics and @devopsdotcom this morning. What do you think about these live survey results? Consistent w/ what you're seeing? http://www.via-cc.at...

John Furrier
ok in all serious I agree the Sassification of apps is driving this
Lawrence Hecht
this looks in line with data I have seen
Krish Subramanian
More or less what I see
Peter Burris
DevOps not having the impact promised; too important to ignore.
Bobby Patrick
Most companies have DevOps culture somewhere in their org doing the cloud native apps, but not mainstream
Wayne A. Walls
This seems to be pretty consistent with what I'm seeing
Reuven Cohen
I like the #devsecops concept as well.
Niki Acosta
The enterprise has not gone mainstream. It's still happening in pockets from what I can tell. Big inhibitor is culture!
