Cloud Ecosystem in 2021 The Biggest Companies to Work For

Are you looking to build your career in IT security? Here’s a look at the fast-growing, ever-evolving cloud ecosystem in cloud computing and networking.

The University of Bolton’s MSc Cloud and Network Security course is designed for first degree holders or computing professionals wanting to develop their skills and knowledge in cloud.

Security is one of the most important areas to go into, and experts in this field are high in demand, with some of the biggest names in computing searching for graduates with the right qualifications. So who are the top companies to work for?

Here we review the current cloud ecosystem in cloud computing and networking, and highlight key players in terms of market share.

Microsoft

For Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), there are three clear segment leaders (Microsoft, Amazon and Google). This makes cloud security a top priority for these companies, and Microsoft offers a range of graduate programmes.

With offices worldwide, including the UK (Reading, Cambridge, London, Edinburgh and now Manchester), working for this multinational corporation can create amazing opportunities for travel.

The Manchester office features a roof terrace with city views, all-weather meeting pods, co-working spaces, screening rooms, studios and stylish communal lounges. There are also reports of a good work/life balance at Microsoft, with 54% of employees working eight hours or less.

Salesforce

Known for having the world’s leading Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software solutions, Salesforce is a name that pretty much everyone in industry knows. Working for a company like this can be a great boost for your visibility, and can add to your portfolio.

The company has offices located across the globe, including two in London, and the UK team is 2,580 people and counting. Their goal is to ensure innovation and technology are at the heart of the UK economy by connecting companies of every size and industry with their customers.

Doing this in the most secure, data-safe way is important to them, making IT security the top of their agenda.

Google

As the tech giant that has its fingers in many pies, it’s no surprise that Google has such a presence within the cloud ecosystem in cloud computing products. It is a clear leader in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) as well as Platform as a Service (PaaS), and the organisation is always on the lookout for cloud specialists.

From cloud sales to cloud security to people who can navigate the mobile cloud ecosystem, there are endless opportunities for graduates with the right skillsets.

Google has offices in Manchester and London, and they are entirely unique within the recruitment space. In their own words, each of their locations has “its own flavour of Googleyness”, which can be translated as unique architecture and office design, free snacks and many other perks. 

Adobe

For those who dream of working purely in a Business to Business (B2B) environment, Adobe is a great company to set your sights on. Leaders in enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS), they support businesses in their journey to digital transformation.

Office locations can be found across North America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
