Cloud Computing ?

Cloud computing is as a model for delivering and consuming computing resources over the internet. It involves the provision of services such as servers, storage, databases, networking, software, and more on a pay-as-you-go basis. This model enables users to access these resources flexibly, scale them up or down as needed, and avoid the complexities of managing physical infrastructure.

key part of corporate digital transformation strategy

The skill involves designing and implementing information technology infrastructure in a public cloud environment and features multiple roles :

  • System Engineers
  • Database Administrators
  • Network Engineers
  • Storage Administrators
  • IT Architects
  • Developers
  • Cybersecurity Consultant
  • Data Scientist

As the cloud begins to dominate the business landscape, demand for positions related to cloud computing is increasing. Those specialists who are adept at managing multi-cloud environments, including public, private and hybrid clouds from a variety of vendors will be best positioned in the evolving market.


Responsibilities may involve providing design input, collaborating with customer service and analysts on project milestones, and analysing weaknesses and recommending system improvements. Cloud computing specialists need a background working with system architecture components, such as networking and software. In addition to strong technical skills, they should also have excellent collaborative skills, as well as strong analytical reasoning to effectively look at the strengths and weaknesses of projects.


The WorldSkills Cloud Computing competition enables candidates to develop multiple cloud computing skills, fostering expertise in managing, deploying, and optimizing cloud-based solutions.
