As documented by Rajesh Singh
I began my career with FIS, a global fintech firm, in 2006. During the first year, my primary responsibility was coding, testing, and providing platform and delivery solutions. In 2007, I moved on from that role, working 12 years for various tech companies in positions like systems engineer and technical architect before returning to FIS in 2019.
When I started with FIS the second time I worked as a Project Manager. In 2020, the company decided to start a new five-year project based on cloud computing. During that time, I worked as a technical architect for FIS. But as I considered my career ambitions, my interest in cloud technology, and the possibility of promotion within my company, I felt an immediate need to upskill by becoming certified in cloud computing.
Matching Your Career Goals with the Right Program
After carefully assessing my goals, I researched various programs to ensure the right fit. I came across different course providers but very few offered comprehensive cloud architect courses. A colleague recommended Simplilearn to me because of the virtual courses, which best suit me as a working professional. I chose Simplilearn’s Cloud Architect Master’s Program because of its highly-relevant curriculum and the benefits of taking the classes entirely online.
With Simplilearn, I enjoyed the convenience and flexibility of class hours because they didn’t interfere with my work schedule. In addition, the classes were virtual, so I chose to take courses either early in the morning, late in the evening, or even on weekends.
The courses were thorough and included modules like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, along with all the basics of cloud architecture. As a bonus to my decision, my company paid for the course which made it easy on my pockets.
