Are you enjoying the long summer days? I appreciate getting outdoors and exploring new trails that lead to a spectacular vista or waterfall. Enjoying the journey to that destination, I might choose to take a familiar path or explore a new one. It’s always an adventure! Before stepping onto any trail, however, I have a plan and map. (And plenty of water.)

The same can be said about training and certification journeys. Learning is an adventure. Always have a plan. (And plenty of water!)

Here at the IBM Center for Cloud Training (ICCT), we have a plan and a map for your next journey. In fact, we have 11 cloud role-based learning paths ready for cloud enthusiasts like you. Add on study tools like the IBM Cloud Prep web app, Cloud Study Jams, and assessment exams, and you have almost everything you need in your learning backpack. At ICCT, we have all you need to get your next Cloud certification. You just have to bring your own water.

How much certification is enough?

Cloud computing represents the most current adventure for most major enterprises. Are you sure that you or the professionals on your IT team have the skills to manage it?

Insights gained from a global IDC survey commissioned by IBM and Intel* show that the biggest business impact from cloud-related projects occurs when organizations have a large proportion of their IT project teams certified in cloud-related areas.

I invite you to learn more from Jani Byrne Saliga, Executive Learning Officer, ICCT, as she shares key findings from the study.
