If you are an original IT profiled person and trying for SRE roles globally in any country, you can contact for a mock interview. You need to follow the pre-requisites:

1. Connect me on LinkedIn to very you.

2. Share your profile.

3. Fix up a call to discuss on the mock interview effort/phases.

Please note its chargeable for each phase.

NOTE: I ENCOURAGE THE ORIGINAL PROFESSIONALS ONLY TO GROW/SUSTAIN IN THE CURRENT/FUTURE IT BY LEARNING.

Cloud: What IT roles can vanish with Cloud transition ?

What IT roles can vanish with Cloud transition ? 

If you are in the below roles, in the current recession you will be targeted for pinkslip among the IT professionals as 1st exit group. What you need to do on your career replan. Please see/follow the blog/videos with patience. 

As per my observation and practice with the trending technology [Cloud], all the Cloud services vendors have inbuilt serverless computing for many services. The following roles are going to be vanished or reskilled. But if they are kept under recession staff cut, these professionals need to take care of their career.

1. DBA:–>The DBA tasks are embedded as part of these services. So the DBAs used to sit hours together in the past to perform many mundane tasks. Now these all are automated.

2. Similarly, many other tasks are related to infra roles; Network admin/Sys-Admin are also automated through Cloud services.

3. As a consolidation all these 3 roles are clubbed into one role of Cloud Engineer. This role’s major task is to automate all the Cloud setup related activities under IAC[Infrastructure As Code]. In future only the IAC will sustain to save the cost to IT by automating the cloud setup creation activity.

4. If any professional need to compete with this role means; they need to understand the Infra needs and the past roles tasks in depth. Along with the multiple Infra related architecture scenarios, with in-depth knowledge on Cloud technology. Then only they can analyze the IAC requirements clearly to write the code and test it. This is the domain analysis and design activity they need to consider apart from the Cloud technology learning.

5. We can also see the Storage engineer role. All the Cloud vendors have the Cloud Storage services. With them mundane tasks creation/maintenance is vanished. Hence this role also will not exist.

IT-SDLC-Roles

The below video has the discussion on: A) What IT Roles can vanish after migrating to Cloud? B) How the roles/tasks are being transformed to Cloud through serverless computing technology ? C) Why anybody can learn and do the past Infra roles with Cloud ? D) What all they need to learn ? E) How the organizations can demand an employee to convert into modern technology before taking a decision for a pink slip serving ?
Finally, what are the following roles and their tasks:
Traditional Infrastructure building roles:
1.Network Admin/Engineer
2.System Administrator
3.Database Administrator
4. Deployment Engineer

Technical Roles:
1.Developer
2.Test Engineer/Analyst

F) Among the above which role can pickup faster the Cloud/DevOps Automation technology ?
G) Then How these roles can perform in Cloud  with faster deployment ?
H) Why and how the manpower reduction happen after Cloud implementation ?

I) Why do you need to learn from the experienced IT mentors to transform into modern technology ?

K) Some people say, they can learn by self. How much they can learn and cope-up with the current market needs on various technologies to settle in modern technology ? [refer to point#5 in this blog].

L) Why do you need to spend/invest  more money to re-settle in the modern technology ?

Note: Along with this video, there are multiple blogs I have published with Videos links to make awareness to the IT Professionals. You see those blogs from this site itself.

For further understanding please read the below text:

In the current IT World Cloud computing became regular practice for any IT Professional. Any cloud services we use, we need to know the current/traditional infrastructure setup. But every IT professional may not have that background/knowledge to understand. Because in this industry each of us played  different roles.

The Infra activities handled IT Professional only will come to know this knowledge and will have experience. But the industry needs every IT employee need to know this knowledge apart from the Cloud service provider [Ex: AWS, Azure, GC, etc..] products operations. [Eventhough, if you are a certified Solutions architect with that Cloud service provider.]

Then only whoever the professionals are certified they will be able to use these products/services and implement them under cloud setup. Hence the Infra domain knowledge or experience is mandated for every IT professional who is working for Cloud services or in that infra setup. I have been hearing during Cloud professionals recruitment the interviewers are keeping some questions on this area also. If one understand the Network domain setup then only they will be able to design the Cloud architecture. Hence more employers are worried to have this domain knowledge with the Certified and recruited Cloud professionals.

I have started a Cloud Practices group to educate/share the IT professionals with this domain knowledge. The below link can be used to join/apply:

AWS: What is AWS IAM Role and how it works ?

When we setup the new projects/functional groups In traditional infra we used to follow a heirarchy of roles as per the organization. When the IT systems access is required the sysadmin/infra team used to follow the similar setup.

When we come to AWS Cloud setup, we need to follow the similar setup, which is called Identity Access Management [IAM].

The following videos have the detailed discussion on IAM usage and its function with lab demos.

How to create IAM Role, Group, users and access through the user ?
The above video shows: What is AWS IAM Role and how it works ?
This video has the eloborated discussion on IAM Roles/groups/users/permissions/policies/configuration, etc.
What is IAM and which is not IAM also can be seen.
How the existing user ids can be used from on-premises to AWS ?
Where the Active directory role comes ?

Note:
I hope you have seen my AWS Coaching specimen on the URL: https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/

Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of it on the candidate what he/she has ?

In my coaching I concentrate to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience by the participant rather than pushing the course to them. Verify the videos.

Contact for your real Cloud experiences learning and gaining with me and crack the interviews to get offers in AWS Roles globally or even you can transition to the role in the same company after facing the client interview.
Please connect me on FB and have a discussion on your background and the needs/goals. I am looking for the serious learners.
