Cisco launched a new set of "critical" certifications today around application development and network programmability to better arm channel partners with the skills needed in the software-centric era.

"It's definitely needed. Cisco is bringing the certifications in line with where business is starting to evolve to," said Rick Bauer, practice architect at High Point Solutions, a Sparta, N.J.-based solution provider and Cisco partner. "It's crucial to people progressing in this next evolutionary step of the network … The whole software-defined everything and the controller-base approach is going to require programmability to enable automation."

Tejas Vashi, senior director, product strategy & marketing for Cisco Services, said the new certifications are "critical because our end customers are now transitioning their architectures and moving into a digital era to drive better business outcomes."
