Everything seems to be all about the cloud these days. Well, at least those things that aren’t about tablets. While there are many benefits and advantages to be found with cloud-based servers, applications, and storage, embracing the cloud also comes with unique challenges and hurdles.

Whether you’re developing software and applications for the cloud, or managing the cloud infrastructure and servers the software and applications will run on, it helps to have specific knowledge and skills related to the cloud.

A post from Microsoft’s TechNet site explains, “Cloud technology creates new opportunities and job roles, but it also impacts current ones. Over the next year, we will introduce new certifications on Microsoft cloud services and will update many of our current certifications to include cloud-related skills. We’ll provide training for these cloud computing offerings through Official Microsoft Learning Products, including Microsoft Press books, Microsoft Official Courses, and Official Microsoft E-Learning.”

Stay tuned. I will share more information on Microsoft cloud certifications as it becomes available.
