However, with an estimated demand of more than 2 million professionals by 2025, India could reach 1-18-1 million cloud talent pools through a fairly aggressive skills roadmap, according to a report titled ‘Cloud Skills: Powering India’s Digital DNA’. Currently, India ranks third globally with a talent pool of 608,000 (FY2021) cloud professionals installed.
“In order to create a unique identity for India as a global hub for cloud solutions, focused public-private partnerships and large-scale expertise are important,” said Nasscom President Devjani Ghosh.
He added, “Nasscom has established its future skills Prime initiative through a partnership with MetiY, to enhance skills in emerging technologies and cloud skills is an important area of focus on this platform.”
India has the necessary ecosystem to capture a large share of this market and will be seen as a cloud solutions hub for the world, the report said.
However, to realize this dream, India must get a stack of its cloud skills.
“The combined efforts of government agencies, education and skills agencies and technology providers have the potential to become the world’s second largest cloud talent center,” it said.
With rapid digital acceleration and everything becoming on-demand and need-based, the transition to cloud-based services will provide a significant competitive advantage for SMEs and enterprises in the new normal field.
It is expected to grow even faster with the accelerated cloud adoption across the sector. Cloud infrastructural agility, flexibility and resilience were the main drivers of growth at significantly lower costs, especially after the epidemic, the report added.
With a baseline growth of 2eline percent CAGR, India’s cloud talent pool is expected to grow 2.X times to around 15 million by 2025.
In order to bridge the demand-supply gap, efficiency in scale needs to be given the highest priority.
“India is well suited to do this by tapping into the pool adjacent to the installed base and targeting the new talents of the universities,” the report said.
