As with Skillsoft’s 2021 list, cybersecurity and cloud computing certifications lead the way. Michael Yoo, Skillsoft customer market leader for technology and developer, said the most notable aspects of the 2022 list is the continued demand for IT professionals with certified skills in cloud computing, cybersecurity and data management.
“This is not surprising, given how nearly every company in every industry of every size in every geography is relying on cloud computing to power their technology strategy,” Yoo said in a statement.
Project management also remaines a certification favorite because there’s universal need for that expertise, he added.
“That said, the increase in importance of Google Cloud and multicloud certifications…speaks to the growing fraction of enterprises that now rely on more than one cloud computing platform,” Yoo said. “Sometimes that’s driven by a desire to have technical and commercial flexibility. Other times, it is a result of mergers and acquisitions activity.”
