Microsoft announced six new tracks last week at Microsoft Ignite for job-based certifications. These exams were primarily focused on Azure certification exams. They provide technology professionals with more opportunities to prove their skills and grow their Azure expertise as they advance in their careers.
The new exams are designed to test the skills required for three of the Modern IT Job Roles as identified by the Azure team: Azure Administrator, Azure Developer, and Azure Solutions Architect. This is because developers and IT operators have repeatedly spoken out about the need to have certification and training in Azure to ensure they have the most up-to-date information. It is crucial to keep up-to-date with the latest technology and methodologies, given the rapid innovation of Azure.
The Microsoft Azure Administrator certification will allow you to learn the core components and enable you to deploy, manage, and build applications on our global network.
