Global IT consulting firm Accenture has launched the Accenture Cloud Engineering Centre in SA, to train hundreds of cloud engineers in efforts to fuel Africa’s cloud computing boom.
The introduction of the centre was driven by the growing need for cloud engineering skills in SA and across Africa, amid the anticipated increased demand for cloud services, notes Accenture. This, as international hyperscalers such as Microsoft, Amazon and Dimension Data continue to invest heavily in the data centre market.
The announcement was made yesterday by Willie Schoeman, MD of Accenture Technology in Africa, at the virtual Accenture Cloud Week 2021 event.
Schoeman noted that as data traffic demand and cloud adoption continue to soar in SA, the increase in connectivity and broadband services is driving huge demand for more data centres, leading to a widening skills gap.
