Make your life easy and be prepared for the market – Microsoft Azure

Azure is the collection of integrated cloud computing services from Microsoft that provides you everything necessary to build, manage and deploy applications. It is the one of the most trusted cloud platforms, according to Microsoft research, ninety percent of Fortune 500 companies trust the Microsoft Cloud.

Why should you be a certified professional in Microsoft Azure?

It is no longer the case that cloud is the future, the cloud is already here. For example, Cisco predicts that soon, 92% of all workloads will be cloud-borne. A big driving force behind this is internet of things (IoT) and associated big data. Database, analytics, and IoT workloads will account for 22% of total business workloads by the year 2020, up from 20% in 2015. The total volume of data generated by IoT will reach 600 zettabytes per year by 2020, 275 times higher than projected traffic going from data centers to end users/devices (2.2 ZB); 39 times higher than total projected data center traffic (15.3 ZB).
