The cloud engineer is “an evolutionary role for a new IT era”, reports Gartner analyst Elias Khnaser.

The cloud engineer is a single role with broad skills, he writes in a technical professional advice report for Gartner.

Cloud engineers have broad skills that go beyond the domain of any particular IT area such as virtualization, networking or storage, he explains.

Depending on the size of the organization, more than one cloud engineer may be necessary.

The most successful cloud engineers have signi?cant experience with current cloud provider services and have skills such as scripting and automation, Khnaser states.

Technical professionals who want to evolve into the role must understand their responsibilities and requirements and develop the necessary skills for successful Mode 1 and Mode 2 cloud deployments.

Some projects they will work on are implementing hybrid IT by integrating different cloud services with backend, traditional datacentre services; and migrating Mode 1 applications to public cloud services in a rehosting (‘lift and shift’) approach or in a refactoring approach for effi?ciency, agility and disaster recovery.

Khnaser says technology professionals looking to become cloud engineers can start by documenting their current skill sets and creating a plan for developing skills for the role.
