Security, Business Skills Remain Vital
Although the IT industry is rapidly changing, security- and business-oriented certifications have a long track record of value in the industry and appear to have a long life ahead, according to Global Knowledge.
The Cary, N.C.-based business training and certification company expects certificates from Amazon Web Services, Cisco, EMC, Oracle and Red Hat to continue being relevant well into the future. From a technology standpoint, Global Knowledge expects certifications related to big data, cloud, networking and programming languages to retain value in the coming years.
The lines between administrators, developers, security oversight and business needs are blurring more and more, and having skills in multiple areas will increase professionals' skills and employability, the company said. As such, Global Knowledge recommends adding one of the following 10 certifications.
