Why get certified in Microsoft Azure fundamentals?
Becoming certified in the fundamentals of Microsoft Azure proves a foundational knowledge of Microsoft’s cloud computing service. Microsoft Azure Fundamentals is not a requirement for any of the Azure certification paths, though it is an excellent starting point.
In nearly every aspect of IT, cloud plays a role. Most organizations have some dependency on a cloud platform and many of these companies use Microsoft Azure as a part of their cloud infrastructure (private, public or hybrid) to host their services as part of an efficient, globally-distributed, highly-scalable architecture.
To remain competitive in IT, cloud almost certainly needs to be part of your skillset. The Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification is intended for individuals looking to gain understanding of core technologies within Azure. It is the only Microsoft certification designed for both IT and non-IT professionals.
IT professionals that currently work in an on-premise environment who are considering a move to the Microsoft cloud (Azure), will benefit from this certification. This is a way to enhance a current career or move into a new role that includes Azure.
