Cloud and distributed computing skills were rated the hottest skill of 2015 on LinkedIn global. But this “new skill” requirement comes at a top dollar cost and at an even greater threat of limited return on investing, as job hopping is at the order of the day. Cloud skills are becoming a scarce commodity!
