More companies than ever are now using cloud computing services, and that number is going to keep growing over the next many years. With that in mind, Joe McKendrick wrote on Forbes that the cloud will be changing jobs everywhere, not just in the IT departments, as technology is becoming a shared responsibility with more employees in the cloud and with their own devices.

"Executives, managers and professionals increasingly have access to computing resources that can be procured, as needed, with a credit card," McKendrick wrote. "At the same time, there is an evolution underway, in which technology professionals are more likely to be embedded within lines of business, versus IT departments. Plus, surveys have shown that already, more than one-third of IT budgets are going to cloud computing."

Rapid innovation, end-users creating and designing their own applications and the economy becoming more do-it-yourself with outsourcing becoming less important are other reasons McKendrick listed to explain the shift.

According to a study by IDC, cloud based services could create more than $1.1 trillion in new business revenue and 14 million jobs by 2015.
