Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is the future and computers as we know it today will be obsolete. Cloud computing is defined as a kind of outsourcing of software, data storage, and processing. Users access applications and files by logging in from any device that has an Internet connection.
The top three cloud computing platforms are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, and Google Cloud. Cloud Computing is one of the fastest growing fields within IT.

The cloud computing sector has grown from $182 billion in 2018 to $206 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow 17 to 24 percent annually per Gartner forecast.

Amazon, the pioneer of cloud computing has opened a second headquarters in Northern Virginia and are planning to hire 25k employees with an average salary of $150k.

Cloud computing is one of the highest paying IT professions and its professionals can expect to be paid from $113k to $150k with AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate certification. Although AWS certifications were just launched in 2013, its certified professionals are one of the highest paid in the industry.

For AWS, the usual path for people who have no experience is to start with AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner and after some experience go for AWS Solutions Architect Associate.

Not to be outdone, Microsoft has Azure, the second leading cloud computing platform. In 2019, Microsoft Azure cloud computing won a contract with the Pentagon worth $10 billion. There are multiple paths an IT professional can follow to certify in Azure. It generally starts with Azure Fundamentals and then branches out to Azure Administrator or Developer. IT professionals can choose from 9 Azure certifications depending on their technical expertise.

To create the next cloud computing experts, we have created 8-week AWS programs and a 7-week Azure program.
