Next Eight IT Certifications Trending Up for 2013-3 Next

The desire for instant video and multimedia distribution continues to grow at a furious pace, especially for handheld and mobile devices. Of course, speed is paramount. In the case of wireless, there are quite a number of channels available. But it's important to optimize for capacity, which requires better management and a more detailed understanding of how the network is being used.

The Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA) certification has been created to achieve this level of proficiency. It's considered the foundation-level enterprise Wi-Fi certification for the Certified Wireless Network Professional program and it also acts as a gateway to more senior credentials. As an increasing number of users view wireless connectivity as basic infrastructure and not as an extra bonus, the need for wireless management capability will continue to grow.

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.
