2. By 2026, cloud delivery is expected to add another NZ$21 billion to the economy and generate 134,000 new jobs as a result of new capabilities and growth.

3. Spending on public cloud is expected to double in the next five years, from NZ$2.6 billion in 2022 to NZ$5.1 billion in 2026.

4. While 20% of the new roles created would be technical roles in IT, digital literacy would be crucial for almost every worker as the use of cloud expanded.
