It’s clear that cloud computing skills are in high demand.
According to our research, 83% of AWS partners that we spoke with believe that the volume of work they are involved in will increase over the next year. This growth has led to a huge demand from businesses around the world for cloud professionals. And this demand isn’t slowing at all.
Companies are not talking about migrating to cloud computing; they are already there and need the support of skilled AWS professionals to make their cloud projects a success. It can be difficult to stay up-to-date in cloud best practices, especially when AWS is constantly changing with new products being added to its catalog each month.
We spoke to thousands of people who work with AWS to identify trends and have identified seven essential AWS skills that you should highlight on your 2020 resume to stay ahead of the pack.
1. Cloud security. Cloud technology was initially feared by early adopters. Cloud security has seen a tremendous improvement in the past few years and cloud security is now more trusted than ever.
According to our AWS Market Trends and Salary Survey report, security was ranked third by respondents, with 36% pointing out its importance, compared to 13% last.
Security is shared responsibility between providers and organizations that use them. This means that companies are looking for security specialists who can leverage AWS’s cloud security tools. This is a growing trend.

The DevOps approach is a combination of practices, attitudes, and tools that greatly increases the speed with which operations and development teams can deliver apps or services.
This innovative model is helping businesses innovate and improve their products faster than traditional processes.
DevOps automates the movement of code from development to production and automates tasks such as monitoring testing, integration, deployment, integration, and testing. Continuous development, integration, deployment are the main goals of DevOps. This directly benefits SaaS applications that rely on cloud computing.
It’s not surprising that AWS community members place so much value on DevOps skills. The global DevOps market is expected grow to nearly $13bn by 2025.

We also asked respondents to rank their top three most-used third party DevOps tools and Big Data tools.
