Job titles have changed a lot over the past 30 years. If you asked someone in 1990 what a cloud architect was, they would probably imagine someone designing houses in the sky. Or, if you mentioned a data ninja in the early 2000s, a good bet could be that something cool happened on the Holodeck in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
