Australian Data Centre operators and service providers agree that joint effort is needed to attract more talent to the cloud and AI infrastructure sector.

As the growth of the Cloud and AI fuels ever increasing demand for data centre capacity, the biggest challenge the industry faces is to find and train enough people to build, maintain and operate the vital infrastructure that drives cloud based connectivity.

On 22 March, representatives from five major Data Centre operators met with those from a range of suppliers and experts to explore the potential for joint efforts to raise the profile of cloud and AI infrastructure as the world’s fastest growing employment sector.

The meeting was organised by the Careers in the Cloud initiative, initially sponsored by leading network infrastructure specialists Alliance SI. The aim is to establish a multi-partner platform that will serve to raise awareness of the sector, and to improve training options and career entry pathways.

The meeting identified a range of opportunities for collective involvement, particularly in relation to attracting more secondary and tertiary graduates to consider the diverse and exciting array of career opportunities opening up in this vital sector.
