The learning path and exam extend IBM’s pre-existing Professional-level certification.

Experienced cloud architects now can gain the enhanced skills and knowledge required to advance their careers with the new IBM Cloud Advanced Architect curriculum. Offered by the IBM Center for Cloud Training, this program extends and validates cloud capabilities while preparing architects for a new IBM Cloud certification.

About the IBM Cloud Advanced Architect curriculum

The new IBM Cloud Advanced Architect curriculum reflects the latest technologies and best practices for IBM Cloud architecture, building on the existing IBM Cloud Professional Architect certification. The Professional Architect program is appropriate for individuals with approximately one year of experience in cloud environments. The Advanced Architect certification is appropriate for individuals with three or more years of experience. Both levels of the architect credential, as with all IBM Center for Cloud Training credentials, consider cloud concepts from the perspective of the IBM Cloud services and offerings.

The curriculum supporting the IBM Cloud Advanced Architect credential provides a deeper level of training, with 15 hours of course content that features learning scenarios and hands-on labs. These exercises include, but are not limited to, the activities required to define an organization’s technical requirements and convert them into the architecture and design for a cloud solution on IBM Cloud.

As this credential has only just launched, IBM will publish the number of certifications earned in a yearly blog, with the initial reporting beginning in March 2023. For information about the number of IBM Center for Cloud Training certifications, please visit the IBM Community page for Cloud Training.

There is a cost for the IBM Cloud Advanced Architect pre-certification and certification exams. Learners who are new to cloud can begin their introduction to the technologies with the IBM Cloud Technical Advocate learning path.

IBM named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM, for the 14th consecutive time

3 min read - Security operations is getting more complex and inefficient with too many tools, too much data and simply too much to do.

Thus, choosing the right SIEM solution can be transformative for security teams, helping them manage alerts…
