Are Cloud Certifications the right thing to do during the time of work from home?
Many people ask me about the worth of certifications. Though, I personally do not recommend certifications but when it comes to Cloud, I think it may be worth it.
- Because it proves our expertise over the cloud vendor and Cloud is something which is vendor specific and not an open source thing.
- Because it gives us a sense of achievement that we really have reached a milestone on the journey of learning something.
- From Organization Perspective its important for them to determine skill levels and screen your profile. If you have certification its an add-on advantage for your profile.
- Having the team certified in cloud, helps organizations save their costs on additional training as everyone has mutual understanding on the terminologies and concepts followed by the cloud vendor specific to business process.
Some of the best cloud certifications can be related to AWS, Azure and GCP for sure. Following are some of the top cloud certifications:
