As documented by Alankar Dwivedi

Sometimes it takes just a spark of initiative and some friendly words of guidance to jump onto a new, exciting career path. As a former software developer, I was convinced to leverage my existing work experience, enroll in the Simplilearn’s Cloud Architect Masters Course, and enter the wide world of cloud computing.

Getting Profitable Career Advice

I followed a friend’s suggestion and contacted Simplilearn for advice. After providing some information on Simplilearn’s website, I received a call from its support team. One of the executives asked about my background and suggested Simplilearn’s Cloud Computing courses. I already had a background in projects, products, and development. I worked with AWS (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft Office 365, and Dynamics 365 technologies. On that basis, Simplilearn suggested that since I already knew about cloud computing, I just had to learn the in-depth concepts.

I was told that if I gain in-depth knowledge of the cloud, how applications are built, and how you manage their administration, I could attain a senior position in the industry.

Simplilearn’s Cloud Computing Approach

Students taking Simplilearn’s Cloud Architect Master’s Course can learn more than 50 cloud computing skills and tools from leading Caltech CTME faculty. These skills include cloud workloads, disaster recovery, database management, autoscaling, performance testing, web services, and API. It also offers more than 30 hands-on projects and integrated labs, and a capstone project in four domains. Simplilearn’s practical course of study helps certified students become job-ready following certification.

Some of the jobs available in the cloud computing field are cloud developer, cloud security engineer, front-end and back-end developer, SysOps administrator, development operations engineer, and solutions architect.

Moving Beyond the Monotony 

It was monotony that first drove me to seek out new career opportunities. 

I received a software engineer diploma course from NIIT in Bhopal and started working as a trainer at NIIT technologies. I worked at GE, Convergys, and Netlink before moving into a software developer job at Ictect.

I was just following orders and was living a monotonous life. I often had to work weekends and could not attend family functions.

After deciding to enroll with Simplilearn, I took a mid-career break to pursue my studies. After taking Simplilearn’s course, I got my confidence back. I understood the technologies and could talk about them. Now, I have an in-depth knowledge of AWS, Azure, and GCP.

I started my technical consulting firm helping clients migrate to the cloud, implement workloads and cloud resources, and teach them basic DevOps principles. With my Simplilearn training, I can speak to the software teams. With my DevOps knowledge, I know the processes to automate their work. 

I am also a persuasive speaker at workshops, seminars, corporate events, and universities. I am mentoring a student start-up and providing thought leadership.

My personal life has taken a turn for the better as well. There has been a drastic change. My work is flexible, I work on more than one thing at a time, and I can spend more time with my family. I am enjoying life.
