New IBM research revealed that developers with skills in creating open source cloud technologies are more likely than other job candidates to receive a call-back.

A survey of more than 3,400 developers and technology managers commissioned by IBM found that more than 67% of respondents preferred skills related to open source cloud technologies, while only 36% preferred skills related to a specific cloud platform.

Open source software skills also were rated equal or better to proprietary software by 94% of respondents, and 54% of developers polled said their professional growth is limited by learning skills specific to a single cloud provider.

These findings follow a study by the Linux Foundation, which indicated that professionals with knowledge of open cloud technologies are 70% more likely to be hired and that 93% of respondents find it difficult to identify sufficient talent with open source skills.
