Why the AWS DevOps Masters Program is Great for Your Career

Business leaders around the world say the same thing – a successful career is not about climbing a straight ladder; instead, you have to know how to scale a rugged mountain.

What does this really mean?

In simple terms, it means that there is no longer a predetermined path to success. We are in a time of great change. Businesses are revamping their practices in response to competition from nimble startups that are disrupting entire industries. Amazon transformed the shopping experience. Facebook and Google have revolutionized advertising. Uber has disrupted the taxi cab industry, and self-driving cars may change the nature of driving altogether.

One of the best examples of this is in the fast-growing Cloud Computing industry.

Amazon launched the AWS in 2006 when Cloud Computing was still a novelty, but the field has grown rapidly since then. Today, the demand for AWS experts is greater than the supply. While there are individual Developers and SysOps professionals, there are still very few people who can handle all aspects of the Amazon Cloud at a high level.

In this environment, companies are looking for employees who bring not one or two, but multiple skills to the table. That is, people who can find a variety of routes to get to the top of the mountain.

Why are multi-skilled professionals in great demand?                   

Multi-skilled professionals are in demand because they:

  1. Reduce costs for a company.
  2. Have learning abilities that ensure a company stays relevant in a fast-changing marketplace.
  3. Encourage a culture of debate and collaboration that help companies produce top-quality work.

So what are the skills you need to succeed as a Cloud professional?

The reason that employers complain about a skills gap is because professionals often enter the workforce with only a theoretical knowledge of their field of work. Most of them go on to acquire relevant on-the-job experience, but it’s often in only one area or skill – which limits the ability of companies to be innovative and create unique products and services.

Multi-skilling solves this problem. If you’re a certified AWS Developer, SysOps, and Solution Architect Associate, you’ll be able to work with any new Amazon Cloud tool that becomes popular - and you’re going to have a place in the Cloud Computing industry no matter what changes take place.

How can you become a multi-skilled Cloud professional?

Short of a job change, it can seem like there’s not much you can do to learn new skills while you’re working. And even if you take the time to learn skills that aren’t directly related to your current job – say you’re working as an AWS Developer but want to learn more about SysOps – how do you convince employers that you can put them into practice?

But where there’s a will there’s a way, and one of the easiest ways to learn multiple skills and boost your credentials is by getting a professional certification, which has become a popular option for professionals around the world.

According to research from Career Data Labs, certified professionals are three times more likely to receive promotions when compared to uncertified employees. Half of all certified professionals receive promotions within six months of getting a certification; the number drops to 20% for similarly situated professionals without a certification.

If you want to become a truly multi-skilled professional, Masters Programs are the way to go. They are comprehensive, in-depth certification training courses that cover everything you need to know to receive an industry-recognized certification.

Many companies offer single-skill certification courses, but Masters Programs are harder to find. The best place right now for full-fledged training in multiple skills is Simplilearn.
