MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Microsoft has some pretty encouraging predictions for the future of computing jobs in Minnesota.

The company did a study and believes cloud computing will bring 13,000 new jobs to the Twin Cities by the year 2015.

That represents a 39 percent increase.

Microsoft says cloud computing is a new business-trend that’s quickly catching on across the nation.

It says more jobs will be needed to support the technology. Microsoft says in the next four years, the number of new jobs should surpass 8.8 million.
