Azure Cloud Week for Partners is just around the corner! Come discover the new opportunities created by cloud computing as it expands into every aspect of business – and how to start turning those opportunities into reality. This event is also a great opportunity to improve your knowledge for role-based Azure certification. By offering opportunities like these, Microsoft hopes to contribute to closing the widening skills gaps that affect our industry.
Why is skilling so important? Because it’s vital for the future of companies and our tech employees. A 2020 survey by Global Knowledge found 78 percent of IT decision-makers said their teams lack the skills to meet present and future needs. Additionally, 68 percent predict additional skills gaps will emerge in the next two years. As a result, the skills gap had an estimated $302 billion impact on businesses in 2019 alone, according to IDC. It even leads to longer work hours and heavier workloads for existing tech employees. Employees who achieve new certifications for in-demand skills, on the other hand, can boost their pay by $12,000 or more.
Take that next step in advancing your career when you join us for Azure Cloud Week for Partners. This virtual training event will take place January 24-28, providing a concentrated, five-day experience for tech professionals who want to build their Azure skills in a variety of areas. Participants can choose from instructor-led courses, on-demand labs, and Q&A sessions during the hours that best fit into their busy schedules. Each day will offer two live training sessions with start times optimized for your location so you can easily begin preparing for certification.
You can also select from four role-based tracks for starting your certification preparation. And all your new knowledge can be applied to your day-to-day work, including real-world projects and business solutions. We hope you will register and spend at least a few of your days as a perpetual learner focused on building out your Azure skillset.
