What is included in CCC Professional Cloud Solutions Architect

Course Description

The Cloud Credential Council (CCC) Professional Cloud Solutions Manager™ certification is designed for professionals who architect the technological solutions required in the process of adoption of Cloud computing.

Cloud computing has become one of the most important buzzwords in our fast-paced world. Its benefits have been recognized by a varied set of professionals and organizations, from reduced costs to collaboration efficiency and scalability. Microsoft, Google, and Adobe are only a few of the major companies using it to great effect.

Solutions architects are increasingly pressed to understand the impact that Cloud is having on business and information architecture, application design, data management, and security architecture. Yet, organizations are struggling to find professionals familiar with the topology and ecosystems that are being created as a result of increasing adoption of Cloud technologies and operating models.

The industry-recognized CCC Professional Cloud Solutions Architect certification is based on the Cloud standards developed by NIST and aims to empower you to design the future generation of technology solutions. A great understanding of the most important technologies, platforms, and Cloud standards is provided via hands-on, practical exercises, and case studies. The purpose is to ensure you’re capable of implementing the knowledge gained to help your organization gain value.

Once the certification exam is passed, you are awarded a diploma and digital badge officially recognizing you have achieved the CCC Professional Cloud Solutions Architect certification and are now a member of the Cloud Credential Council’s global community.
