How Multi-Cloud Skills and VMware Certifications Help Your Career Transformation in 2023

Voiced by Amazon Polly


In today’s increasingly digital and connected world, companies are looking for professionals who have a diverse set of skills and are able to work with a variety of technologies. Multi-cloud skills, which refer to the ability to work with multiple cloud computing platforms, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, are in high demand as more and more companies adopt a multi-cloud strategy. 

Similarly, VMware certifications demonstrate a level of expertise in virtualization technologies, which are widely used in businesses of all sizes to improve efficiency and reduce costs. By obtaining a VMware certification, you can show prospective employers that you have the skills and knowledge to work with these technologies, which can make you an asset to their organization. 

Recent Statistics from VMware Research have interesting insights available: 

  • In the year 2021, 71% of large-sized organizations with 5000+ employees had adopted multi-cloud. Whereas in the year 2022, this number grew to 87%. 

  • In the year 2021, 75% of organizations deployed Apps in Public, Private, Hybrid clouds, Edge, and Co-location environments. Whereas in the year 2022, this number grew to 80%. 

Cultivating New IT skills is of Paramount Importance in Current Organizational Setups

The multi-cloud strategy of their business, according to IT practitioners (admins, operators, engineers, and managers), attempts to create a culture where more teams have access to more IT solutions. 

This entails: 

  • Providing accessibility in strategic places
  • Aligning the demands of individual applications with those of a certain cloud provider 
  • Attending to the various requirements and wants of all users, teams, and business units.
New security threats may arise as platform possibilities expand. Enterprise leaders overwhelmingly (88 %) concur that their company is “extending its disaster recovery and risk mitigation strategies to regulate [their] overall cloud strategy in 2022.” Moreover, half (63 %) of them believe that a breach will affect their application environments in 2022.  

IT professionals must adapt their existing skill sets for the contemporary, diverse systems that are becoming increasingly complicated to close the skills gaps.  

The top five talents that executive IT executives are focusing on developing for their infrastructure and operations team are:  

  1. Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) for operations 
  2. Across platforms, data protection, backup, recovery, and resilience 
  3. Managed cloud database services and effective management 
  4. Monitoring the performance of applications 
  5. Managing and maximizing cloud costs
