CompTIA Cloud Essentials

The CompTIA Cloud Essentials exam is designed to offer a baseline, entry-level credential that provides an overview about cloud computing in general. It was originally developed by ITpreneurs in cooperation with the Cloud Credential Council, whose membership body includes IBM, Cisco, EMC, HP and ING. Topics covered range from the business value of cloud computing to the characteristics of cloud services from a business perspective. Also covered are topics such as the different cloud types, steps to successful adoption, and the impact and changes from an IT service management perspective. At least six months of experience in an environment that markets (or relies on) IT-related services is recommended.

The impact that the cloud has on enterprise IT today can’t be denied. For all its pervasiveness, however, the cloud is still comparatively new, which makes hiring the correct employees equipped with the pertinent cloud-related skillsets all the more important. The field is constantly changing, too, which makes identifying these abilities an even more challenging one for the harried CIO or IT manager.

To help you on this front, we have identified some of the more notable cloud-related certifications. While they run the gamut from the relatively entry-level to the fairly challenging (and prestigious), they are likely certifications that you should know about as you evaluate your staff’s skillsets and go about hiring.
