Cloud is an area which has seen rapid growth across a variety of industries in recent years – not least among drinks manufacturing & supply companies.

Figures show that the number of new cloud roles being advertised for these companies has increased in recent months – with firms across the industry looking to expand their capabilities. The number of newly advertised roles stood at 506 in the first three months of 2021. That’s a near-42% rise on the 357 roles in Q4 2020 and a near-doubling of the 266 in the third quarter of last year.

 

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job ads are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity groups key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries. These key themes, which include cloud, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job ads, we're able to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and, more importantly, where the market is expanding and contracting.
