We are excited to introduce the IBM Cloud Advocate Learning Path, certification exams and study guides to help you succeed on your cloud journey.

Cloud adoption continues to accelerate and so does the demand for cloud skills, because companies recognize that employee knowledge of cloud is tied directly to the organization’s success. An Everest Group survey shows that 78% of enterprises are not able to succeed in their digital transformation initiatives because of the dearth of IT talent.

The IBM Center for Cloud Training provides the training and certifications to help technology professionals learn how to utilize the cloud. Today, the Center released the following new learning path, certification exams and study guides:
