Hottest IT Skillsets You Need for 2019

2018 marked significant growth in the Cloud Computing market. For Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) alone, Gartner predicts that the market is now at around USD 40.8B and expects it to double in 3 years. With no signs of slowing down, it is important for companies to develop people with the right skills to understand, manage and support these technologies. Cloud architects and skills to support cloud applications, machine learning, IoT, big data and the like are needed to keep up with the rise of cloud computing.

Microsoft Azure has been gaining ground in the IaaS market and posted a 93% growth compared to the previous year. As Microsoft continues to add more services to its Azure portfolio, developing skills and certifications in Microsoft Azure are predictably a good, long-term investment. Here are the different learning paths for IT professionals to bolster their cloud computing portfolio:

Azure Role Based Certifications
