With the current climate of the world, more and more businesses are entertaining a system shift into cloud-based computing. The infrastructure of operations is no longer tied to tangible on-site computer stores but to a wider SaaS radius.
Microsoft Azure is the leading cloud framework system allowing engineers and developers the building blocks needed to establish, deploy, manage, and monitor access to cloud applications.
The benefits to being accredited with the Microsoft Azure certifications are growing with increased demand to the system.
1. Governments Firmly Rely on Azure
When it comes to data integration it’s always good to ensure major governments are on board with the software systems. In the case of Microsoft Azure, it is fully accepted into the US Government’s infrastructure of secure, efficient, cost-saving and flexible working environment.
In fact, there is an Azure Government subsection of the cloud. The same is also true for the British Crown Commercial Service whereby pricing arrangements are underway.
Therefore, just with the Azure Fundamentals certification, you’ll be entering the marketplace as a viable candidate suitable for both industry and public-sector cloud-based roles. All while promoting ideals that your breadth of knowledge in the sector is firmly supported by two major global governing bodies.
2. Demand for Your Expertise Will Soar
Current statistics show a growing trend of Microsoft Azure business and industry members with rates currently sitting at 57% of Fortune 500’s with a daily climb of 1,000 new cloud customers each day.
As a global network, cloud substitution is estimated to become a $300 billion-dollar business as rapidly as 2021 and Microsoft Azure attains a 154% year-on-year growth.
So, businesses will be in dire need of new personnel with pre-existing Azure certifications to progress their transition and continue to monitor progress within the company. Especially within the sectors of security whereby companies may require time to engage viable levels of trust. Thus, making the Azure Security Engineer Associate certification a key skillset.
3. Being Azure Certified Warrants a Higher Pay Bracket
Your certifications represent your data comprehension and capabilities as an individual in the industry. With more relevant and technical Azure certifications to demonstrate your working contribution to a company, you enter a pool of in-demand IT professionals who can claim higher wages and increased benefit to working for a specified company.
According to ZipRecruiter research, Microsoft Azure certified earners average $122,000 per annum with an Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification while the bracket increases into the $180 thousand dollar mark for Azure Fundamentals certified personnel.
4. Your Opportunity for Varied Industries is High
Enlisting on a course for even the lower-range certifications such as: Azure Data Analyst Associate or Azure AI Engineer Associate opens an array of industry doors providing tremendous potential.
With the global rates of advanced economies of 2020 projected to double in 2021 (as per IMF reports) after the integration of online living, even traditionally offline businesses are placing stakes in online interfacing.
Existing online industries such as healthcare, banking and education require new cloud infrastructure to connect their users, provide high levels of security and reduce IT overheads, respectively.
Your choice of industry is in your hands. And, with Microsoft Azure Administrator Associate certifications and the like providing key stepping-stones to become an Azure Architect, opportunities are endless.
5. Azure Interfaces Build on Pre-Existing OS Comprehension
Upon obtaining your Azure Administrator Associate certification, Azure Developer Associate certification, or other, you’ll be reintroduced to familiar Microsoft interfacing to help learn and adapt to new cloud-based data manipulation ability.
Having this exposure to the Microsoft operating system provides a large and efficient advantage to the learning curve of managing sub-services such as Azure Operational Insights, Microsoft Power BI and Azure Automation.
From here, Azure certifications build upon a structured methodology allowing you to integrate other commonly seen tools elsewhere in business. For example: AzurePing, Cloud Explorer for Visual Studio, SQL Database Migration Wizard, Docker, Hadoop, Eclipse and so on.
With Microsoft Azure certifications, you’ll be able to manufacture new approaches and systematic solutions from the ground up. Whether it’s supporting with data and analytics, innovating with best-in-class apps or managing hybrid cloud infrastructure; maintaining in-demand software knowledge through Azure will benefit your future.
