Ireland could create 8,600 jobs with cloud computing adoption, report says

Thousands of IT jobs could be created in Ireland if the country takes advantage of the rise in cloud computing, according to a new report published by Microsoft.

Around 8,600 new roles may be generated if Ireland acts now to be a part an industry that could be worth around 40 billion euros (£34.22 billion) by 2014.

Furthermore, the report adds that around 500 million euros in costs could be taken out of Irish companies as they adopt the expenditure-saving technology.

Paul Rellis, Microsoft Ireland's managing director, told Silicon Republic that Ireland can "take a front foot on this" and create new job opportunities.

"There is an opportunity that is real and clear. It is vital that we put in place a productive policy to take advantage of the transformative potential cloud computing has for all our organisations," he told the news provider.

Yesterday (January 24th), Gartner revealed that cloud computing adoption across the world will continue to rise in the next four years as more firms look to reduce on-site hosting of applications and data.
