In the past, an enterprise IT résumé could be summed up with acronyms like CISSP, CISA, MCSE, MCA, and so on. The C always stood for “certified,” and no professional would be taken seriously without it.
In the cloud era, however, hardware and software management duties are offloaded to providers, so what kinds of qualifications should enterprises be looking for, and which skills do IT professionals need?
To answer these questions, we turn to Thomas Erl, top-selling author of nine books (including the new title Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture), highly acclaimed editor of the Prentice Hall Service Technology Series, founder of the CloudSchool.com Cloud Certified Professional (CCP) Program, and CEO of Arcitura Education.
Thomas will join us for a live chat on Tuesday, July 30, at 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT.
