As a leader in IT Recruitment, CareerWise Recruitment welcomes the launch of the €5m Government-Funded Cloud Computing Technology Centre in DCU today. Cloud Computing is a major evolving industry that has the potential of providing 8,600 jobs by 2014. The center was launched today by Minister Richard Bruton.
The centre’s aim is to accelerate the development and adoption of cloud technology in Ireland, develop and showcase Ireland’s capabilities in this field and ultimately benefit the Irish economy through job creation and increased revenues in the ICT sector. The industry-led centre has a strong industry panel that includes Microsoft, Fujitsu, Intel and IBM. It will build on Ireland’s substantial research base in this area and focus on partnering researchers with industry in order to turn good research ideas into good jobs in the Irish economy.
“Cloud computing is already a significant part of the overall market for information technology and services and is now one of the fastest growing segments of the market. That why as part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs we have specifically targeted this sector for jobs and growth in the coming years.
“A major part of supporting job creation in this sector is ensuring that we derive the greatest possible benefit from the major state investment in scientific research over the past decade. We must ensure not only that we continue to support cutting-edge scientific research, but also that we put in place measures to ensure that we can turn the good ideas emerging from that research into good jobs. That is why we have developed this industry-led technology research centre, to bring industry and researchers together so that they can focus on creating viable businesses and ultimately create the jobs we need”.
