re: Cloud Will Create 14 Million Jobs, Study Says
Amazing how the companies who are trying to ram the cloud down our throats so they can make lots of money and regain control of us are the ones claiming 14 million mythical jobs will be created in the next 3 years.
The only way true jobs are created is by creating something of value to humanity. All the cloud does is change the location of corporate websites from the corporations' server rooms and independent webhosts back into the greedy clutches of mega-corps like Microsoft and Amazon. How can that possibly create new jobs, let alone 14 million of them? All the cloud will do is eliminate jobs. As the article says, employers will be able to "devote fewer resources to maintenance and legacy applications". If they don't eliminate jobs, they will just be re-allocated to cloud redevelopment, net zero job changes, marginal job increases at best.
