Working in the cloud has been a field in growth mode for a while, and it’s only going to continue. Companies like Microsoft continue to grow their cloud capabilities – both with the new Joint Warfighter Cloud Capability (JWCC), the new IDIQ contract that took over the former Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) Cloud contract and with the availability of Azure Government Top Secret. And the jobs for candidates who want to work in the cloud continue to grow, with new certifications and opportunities increasing regularly.
