Apple Makes 500k Jobs? Cloud Services Could Help Make 14 Million, With Half In China And India
Much was made of the news last week from Apple that its businesses had effectively created over 500,000 jobs in the U.S. not just directly at its company but at the many that link into the ecosystem it has created. Today, Microsoft teamed up with IDC to publish some research that took that one step (or actually 13.5 million steps) further: The two say that cloud computing services will generate nearly 14 million jobs worldwide by 2015, and that in 2012 that number is already at 6.7 million. That development, IDC says, could account for $1.1 trillion annually in new business revenues. That will come in the form of more efficiency for people whose jobs would have originally had more tie-in with IT -- now outsourced in the form of cloud-services -- but also completely new opportunities: half of the jobs that will be created, says IDC, will be in China and India.
