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 advertisements are then classified thematically.
GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group 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 advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.
The fastest growing country was the US, which saw 54% of all cloud job adverts in the three months ending July 2021, increasing to 57.6% in the three months ending July this year.
That was followed by Hungary (up 2.4 percentage points), France (1.8), and Spain (1.8).
