Why get certified?

12 reasons for seeking training and certification

We live in exciting times to be working in technology. While the words “digital transformation” can sometimes feel overused, we are indeed in a digital era where so much of our technology is dramatically transforming.
Cloud has come from the realm of virtually nonexistent to exerting an influence today upon networking, data center, security, analytics, and virtualization. Cybersecurity, likewise, has become an urgent need in all technology sectors and is constantly evolving in the face of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.
And then there’s data center, which has come to play a central role in the business landscape; the Internet of Things, vitally important to our digital lives in its ability to connect a staggering amount of data and devices; and software-defined networking, which has ushered in a sea change in how networks can be managed via automation. But through it all, routing and switching remains a core foundation of knowledge that IT networking professionals can build from in their career adventure.
These vibrant technological developments all coming at once can seem overwhelming— you need to be able to catch the waves of change and ride them smoothly. It’s precisely why we believe that right now is the best time to explore what solid training and certification can do to focus you and help make you a technical superstar in your organization.
