From Code to Cloud: The Collaborative Dance of Engineers and Architects

This is a question I've seen people struggle with in organizations.

Is there a difference between a cloud engineer and a cloud architect? I think David did a nice job here of outlining the different aspects of the work.

Cloud engineers and architects are indispensable in leveraging cloud computing to drive innovation. Cloud engineers are the builders and maintainers of cloud environments, and cloud architects are the visionaries who design the framework within those environments. They have a symbiotic relationship. I expect that both of these roles will evolve a great deal in the next few years, as AI becomes a driving force, and businesses understand the value of cloud-based technology solutions.

I guess it comes down to strategic vs tactical roles and which suites you best.
