The meteorological term “bombogenesis” describes the confluence of events needed to produce a so-called “bomb cyclone,” a large storm marked by hurricane force winds and heavy precipitation. Not so very long ago, there was a bombogenesis of sorts in the information technology realm where clouds gathered rapidly and propagated explosively.
We’re talking about the IT variety of cloud, of course. The cloud as a symbol of networked computers has been around since the 1970s, but it wasn’t until the mid-2000s that “cloud computing” began to gain in popularity as a viable means of data storage and displaced workloads. In 2022, cloud computing is everywhere, affecting everything, and the storm front hasn’t remotely blown itself out.
With so much cloud-dependent and cloud-enabled technology, there’s a real need for cloud computing expertise both inside the IT realm and across nearly every other business or industrial sector. Certification is an excellent on-ramp for anyone looking to steer her or his professional career into this lane of the information superhighway.
If you’re in that lane already, then you’ve come to the right place. We want to find out all about your cloud certification experience. Cloud computing isn’t quite as thick with certification offerings as some IT realms, but that’s changing fast. How are certification providers doing at keeping up with the times (and technology)?
We also want to get inside the cloud computing world just a bit and get a snapshot of what the men and women on the inside see there each day. That is why the time has come for another survey: Welcome to our Cloud Computing Certification Survey.
As we always do, we’ve added a dash of incentive to participate. If you take the survey all the way to the end, we’ll thank you with either (or both!) of two rewards. You can get a free digital copy of the next issue of Certification Magazine. Or get a one-year print subscription at 40 percent off the normal cost. (Hate making decisions? Get ‘em both! We don’t mind.)
BIG THANKS to everyone who participated in our 2022 Cloud Computing Certification Survey! Watch for the results to appear the forthcoming 2022 Spring Edition of Certification Magazine.
