The Salesforce economy is forecast to create 4.2 million net new jobs and $1.2 trillion in new business revenues by 2021 according to a new report from IDC.
The huge growth within the Salesforce ecosystem mirrors that of the cloud computing industry as a whole which is predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 19% over the period. The IDC white paper estimates that in the same six-year period, worldwide spending on cloud computing will grow from $147 billion to $418 billion. By 2024, cloud computing will account for nearly half of all software sales globally.
The rise in Salesforce-related jobs will further exacerbate the existing high demand for Salesforce professionals and an associated shortage of Salesforce skills in the market.
