Virtualization. Cloud computing. Mobilization. Each of these processes enable companies of any size to achieve greater measures of sustainability to help the environment. Although the complexity of navigating further into sustainability practices can seem daunting with so many options, a CompTIA Green certification provides the depth, background and know-how to take on the challenge to help mid-sized companies and enterprises cope with and make the necessary changes.

The exam focuses on green technologies, standards and policies and enables individuals to demonstrate their knowledge and skill at implementing environmentally sound green IT techniques. The exam addresses environmental concerns such as power preservation, reducing the carbon footprint, identifying green IT standards, implementing virtualization and calculating the return on investment for implementing green IT initiatives.

The nature of IT is to stay ahead of the curve in all things related to technology. Today, the expectation is that IT professionals will have a measure of capability, if not proficiency, in everything from wireless networking and security to mobile app development and maintaining a cloud-based infrastructure. However, IT pros can't be everywhere at once. By developing skillsets in certain areas, both entry-level and accomplished IT veterans can remain current with changing trends and adapt to new ones.

Extending your expertise into new areas demonstrates that as an IT professional, you can manage the complex changes taking place today in technology and that you are up to the challenge. That approach is extremely valuable as enterprises and SMBs cope with an ever-evolving data center and look to IT to provide critical direction and support.

Acquiring one of these emerging certifications also speaks volumes to prospective employers. It makes an impression on HR reviewers because it shows openness to growing complexity and an ability to function beyond one's comfort zone. In today's environment, such change is constant. In this slideshow, Global Knowledge examines trending IT certifications and explores why these new skills will be increasingly vital in the current technological and economic climate.
