  • 5 Reasons to Take up A Cloud Computing Certification Course

    Over the past few years, the cloud computing industry has generated a lot of interest and investment. Cloud computing has become an integral part of the IT infrastructure for many companies worldwide. Industry analysts report that the cloud computing industry has grown swiftly over recent years.

    According to Wikibon, the Amazon Web Services (AWS) revenue will climb to $43 billion by 2022 with Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud close behind. As cloud computing becomes critical to IT and business in general, the demand for cloud skills will increase. Aspiring cloud professionals must prove that they have the skills and knowledge to be able to compete favorably in the market, and a cloud computing certification is the best way to do that.

    Here are the top reasons why you should gain cloud computing certification if you’re looking to join this innovative field:

    1. The Demand for Cloud Computing Professionals Will Continue to Grow

    Organizations are looking for IT professionals who have gained professional training in cloud computing and can help them implement a cloud environment into their infrastructure as seamlessly as possible. A search on Indeed revealed that there are more than 25,000 unfilled positions in the U.S. that are related to AWS alone. Comprehensive cloud computing training and certification such as the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Training is a great advantage. It covers the key concepts, latest trends, and best practices for working with the AWS infrastructure to become an industry-ready AWS Certified Solutions Architect.

    The number of jobs in Microsoft cloud (Azure) has increased over the years, and a study of 120 Microsoft partners indicated that hiring companies had tough time sourcing professionals who were skilled to work on the Microsoft Azure platform. A certification in Azure Infrastructure Solutions will enable you to have the skills necessary for those jobs.

    Most companies today use DevOps to deliver new software applications and features. As more companies realize the benefits of DevOps methodologies, the demand for certified professionals in this domain continues to grow. You can get certified by taking a course on DevOps Practitioner Certification.

    2. Improves Your Earning Potential    

    Simplyhired reports that the average salaries for cloud administrators are less than $78,000, while cloud developers earn an average of $118,758 a year. Cloud architects are big earners, with median salaries of $124,406 and some salaries as high as $173,719. Research by Forbes shows that professionals with AWS Certified Solutions Architect Certification have a potential annual salary of $125,971. Cloud computing training will be a step in the right direction and can help you enhance your earning potential.

    3. Secure Jobs

    If you gain the latest skills in cloud computing, you can land jobs that aren’t influenced by volatile market conditions. This is because most companies find it difficult to find IT professionals with the cloud computing skills they need.

    4. It Proves Your Expertise and Promotes Credibility with Employers and Peers

    Certifications are a great way to measure knowledge and skills against industry benchmarks. According to Microsoft and IDC, certification, training, and experience are three of the top four important attributes an organization looks for when hiring for a cloud-related position. A cloud computing certification implies that you are skilled to help your organization reduce risks and costs to implement your workloads and projects on different cloud platforms. This will provide opportunities for cloud-related projects, and your clients will see you as a credible subject matter expert. It shows that you can work on complex procedures and handle cloud deployment in an enterprise.

    If you want to specialize in one area of cloud computing or you want a new job, you can specialize in one or more vendor-specific certifications, such as AWS or VMWare. Cloud certifications are a great way to take your career to greater heights.

    5. Better Chances of Getting Shortlisted for an Interview

    If you are looking to penetrate the cloud industry, cloud computing courses such as Cloud Engineer Masters Program can help you reach the interview stage.  Having a certification on your resume will help you get noticed by hiring companies and proves to your employers that you have the right cloud computing skills, knowledge, and expertise for the job.

    Cloud Technology Is The Past, Present, and The Future

    Over the last few years, cloud technology has transformed the way businesses operate. Today, companies big and small rely on public cloud platforms to host and implement critical applications.
