Why get CompTIA Cloud+ certified?
CompTIA Cloud+ is the latest exam to help you validate your knowledge about cloud computing. CompTIA is known for their vendor-neutral approach to certifications and has continued that trend with Cloud+.
Business leaders have recognized the promising return on investment (ROI) of cloud computing and IT leaders have realized at the benefits of total cost of ownership (TCO) for technology rollouts. These two factors have helped propel cloud computing to the forefront of the IT field—it ranks as the top worldwide tech interest area according to the Global Knowledge 2018 IT Skills and Salary Report.
Businesses need to have skilled, certified administrators to run cloud environments and that demand will only continue to grow. IT decision-makers are struggling to find qualified cloud talent. According to our report, the cloud skills shortage is due to the fact that more than one or two skills are needed to grow the cloud.
