Cloud Consultant
Cloud consulting is a service that cloud professionals provide to organizations. They design, implement, migrate or maintain cloud computing systems, processes, and applications. Software installation and configuration, as well as customization to meet the company’s needs, are common job duties.

Who offers Cloud consulting services?
In the beginning, niche companies dominated this industry. However, large technical service firms and multinational system integrators have bought smaller cloud professionals to create their own cloud consulting practices. Cloud platform providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and others are launching a growing number cloud services. Cloud consultants have expanded their client base by focusing on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning. Consultants are now focusing on vertical markets, such as healthcare and financial services, to make cloud adoption easier. These patterns will continue to evolve as Cloud platforms become more sophisticated.
