  2. Cloud computing is often talked about as a technology that will make IT departments obsolete as companies seek to outsource computing needs. This analysis misses the complexity of what's actually happening in IT departments. The actuality is that cloud technologies are running in conjunction with on-site systems, and many companies are choosing to operate and maintain their own servers - even if they have a few Cloud applications up and running. This adds a layer of complexity to effectively managing the IT needs of an organization. Rather than eliminating the role of in-house IT professionals, the cloud is merely changing the skill set and job functions of the IT department. In my experience, here are the top 5 skills IT professionals will need to learn to work in cloud computing: 1. Become a Strategic Partner of Business The idea of IT becoming a "strategic partner" of business has been tossed around quite a bit. In the world of cloud technologies, this requires being well versed in the full range of cloud solutions on the market, and being able to effetively communicate how deploying these technologies will impact your organization's C-level priorities. Learning the technical features and benefits of various technologies is something most IT professionals are already doing. The new challenge (and valuable skill) for IT will be addressing C-level executives using their own vernacular and navigating an audience where technology expertise varies widely. For instance, the CIO may be convinced everything is ready to move to the Cloud, while the CFO may have lingering security concerns about putting financial information outside company firewalls. Being able to address these concerns and outline the benefits of cloud technologies in business terms will be essential. 2. Learn how to Code and Develop In a recent conversation with Ben Kepes, Principal Analyst at Diversity Limited, Kepes noted that the division between development and systems operations is blurring. Why? As Ben explains it, "today's modern platforms are sufficiently robust and self-contained," so deploying and maintaining applications is much simpler these days. For the IT community, this translates to an increased demand for individuals who can code, develop and deploy their own applications. This is a growing area of opportunity for IT professionals because there are so many new applications to be built for businesses and a real shortage of next-gen development talent. Capitalizing on this demand will require knowledge of cloud platforms, such as Force.com and Microsoft Azure. Additionally, it's important to know popular applications programming languages, e.g., PHP, Ruby, JAVA and .NET. 3. Adopt Cloud Integration Technologies In addition to understanding how to develop cloud applications, IT professionals also must understand how to connect them and manage information flow. Deep knowledge of Cloud-to-Cloud integration as well as Cloud-to-On-premise integration technologies will be vital. IT professionals should be familiar with third-party Cloud-based integration services such as Boomi and Informatica, as well as integration appliances like Cast Iron. Of course, these third-party tools are not always sufficient for the task at hand; for this reason, it's helpful to know how to build custom integrations using SOAP, RESTful APIs and custom integration servers. 4. Understand Enterprise Mobile Security The proliferation of smartphones & tablets, and the increasing number of companies implementing BYOD (bring your own device) policies, is spurring significant demand for IT professionals who can effectively manage mobile security. While the industry is leaning toward OAuth certification standards, there is no widely accepted standard for managing mobile security. This means that IT professionals will be expected to stay on the cutting-edge of emerging security technologies that control permissions and access from work and personal mobile devices. 5. Obtain Cloud Computing Certification(s) The final area I believe the IT community should focus on is validating their hard-earned cloud computing skills. Certifications carry weight in the IT world, expecially in new and emerging technologies where very few have vast experience. Respected providers currently offering cloud certifications include Amazon, Salesforce, Rackspace and CompTIA. Earning a cloud computing certification will increase your job marketability and help you capitalize on the current skills gap in cloud computing. The demand for these skills will only grow as companies continue to increase their investments in Cloud computing and develop an increasingly complex ecosystem of applicaCloudtions. Since these skills are in short supply, the IT community would be wise to ready themselves for the Cloud market, which Forrester predicts will be valued at $241 billion by 2020. These growth projections suggest that the opportunities won't be limited to internal IT departments, but also within ERP software companies themselves. IT professionals that build this new skill set will position themselves for a thriving career in the Cloud Era. What are your thoughts on this skills shift? Do you have experience obtaining any of the skills mentioned above? Please share your thoughts and experiences in the comments section below.
  3. It’s not often that a certification announcement garners enough buzz to get a couple minutes’ mention in a large conference keynote, but that’s exactly what happened this week at Microsoft Management Summit 2012. During the MMS Day 1 Keynote “Microsoft Private Cloud. Built for the Future. Ready Now,” there was not only mention, but promotion of the new MCSE: Private Cloud certification. People are talking about it In addition to mention on the main stage at MMS there have been numerous emails, blogs, twitter conversation, and all around buzzing about Microsoft bringing back the MCSE. Any time you can have so much chatter bringing attention to a certification is a good thing, people are excited. Only time will tell if that excitement converts to people obtaining the certification, but it’s a good start. Increased Clarity While the clarity at launch and the direction Microsoft is taking the MCSE is still a little “cloudy,” the clarity of the certification pyramid for MCSE: Private Cloud, MCSE: Data Platform & MCSE: Business Intelligence are much clearer than the MCITP offerings for Windows Server 2008. A week doesn’t go by where we don’t get a perspective learner contacting us asking, “What’s the difference between MCITP: Server Administrator and MCITP: Enterprise Administrator,” and “Which one should I go for?” I wish there was an easy answer for that. Even I question, “Why doesn’t one funnel into the other?” It sort of does, but not really. That was part of the simplicity of the MCSA/MCSE. One was just the first step to the other. It’s good to see that part being brought back. The pyramid is simple. First become MCSA, show you have the foundational knowledge. Second, move up and become a MCSE. Show that you know how to take all the foundational knowledge coupled with expertise on different platforms and make them all work together. Third, if you’re that achiever-type and want to be crowned king of the IT Mountain, you have the MCSM or Microsoft Certified Solutions Master, showing you’ve got as much or more knowledge in the arena as the Microsoft product engineers. Increased Value to Cert One thing I’ve noticed about certifications, like Cisco’s program that require regular recertification, is they hold their value more in the workplace. There is a place and time for recertification and the two places it makes the most sense in are when technologies inside the certification evolve (Security is a great example) and high skill, high impact, niche type information is known. Look at the Cisco CCIE certification and the fact that someone holding that certification is probably going to have a lot of access and power in a network. I would want to know that their keeping up on the technology, compared to a more entry-level person/certification. Additionally, the MCITP certification never got to the value level of the old MCSE. In TechRepublic’s 2011 Salary Survey the MCSE average base salary was higher than their MCITP: Enterprise Admin counter parts by 4% ($83,234 to $79,824). I would expect the familiar branding of the MCSE, new technology knowledge, and the recertification process will help boost the value up and beyond the old MCSE. Branding From the start, Microsoft took backlash when they changed the name of their flagship certification track from MCSE to MCITP. There was a ton of confusion that still exists today. You’ll even run into fan boys that refuse to reference it any differently, but that can all stop now. With the return of the MCSE Microsoft has revived one of the most beloved and valued brands in the certification arena. It ranks right up there with the A+, CCNA, and CCIE for most well-known certifications in the IT field. Besides being beloved and valued, it’s just better marketing. It rolls off your tongue much easier than MCITP and in a world of acronyms, simpler is better. Additionally, the MCTS and MCITP certification took credibility hits early in their existence. People complained they were too easy, and people who had the certs couldn’t actually perform the jobs expected by those who carry the certification brand. Over the past 3 years Microsoft has taken many steps to combat this as well as cheating on the exams. The exams have gotten much harder and representative, but the MCTS and MCITP brand still suffer from the perception. With the rebranding to the MCSA/MCSE, Microsoft has the opportunity to thwart that perception and regain the previous glory and value of the MCSE certification program. Real World Solutions Focus This is hands down the best change to the Microsoft certification map they made with the new MCSE. Microsoft states, “The new certifications align to real world solutions rather than specific products.” The certs are no longer just product specific, but merge products and expertise to be more consistent with what you’d be doing on the job. Let’s be honest, you can be great with a product like Exchange, but if you don’t know how it integrates with SharePoint, Lync, Active Directory and the like you’re not truly an expert. In today’s world of budget cuts there is a real probability that you won’t be working on just a single facet of a network, like server backup operator, and instead be handling parts of the whole environment. As you may know, here at TrainSignal scenario-driven education is what we’re all about so I’m really excited to see Microsoft make this shift. I’ve already noticed with the SQL Server 2012 MCSEs that you need to have passed the administration tests as part of the MCSA. To get your MCSE: Data Platform you need to pass exams covered both developing and designing SQL Databases. That is much better-rounded than the SQL 2008 MCTS and MCITP program where everything was in silos. The same is true with the MCSE: Private Cloud. It’s not just System Center you need to know. You need to have passed the MCSA for Server 2008 proving you have the understanding to really deploy a private cloud environment including the server VMs configuration. This is all exciting stuff and I look forward to all the new information in the coming weeks from Microsoft. At the same time it’s not all good, so make sure to check out 5 Ways Microsoft Screwed Up Bringing Back the MCSE.
