Cloud plays a role in almost every aspect of IT. The majority of organizations depend on a cloud platform, to some extent. Many of these organizations choose Microsoft Azure as part of their cloud infrastructure (public, private, or hybrid).

For IT professionals to remain competitive in the industry, cloud must be included in their skillset. The Microsoft Azure Administrator certification helps ensure that individuals who are looking to advance their current career or take on a new role as a cloud administrator are viewed as competent and appealing to hiring managers and recruiters.

There are more and more organizations that require employees to be familiar with Microsoft Azure – and some that require candidates for job openings and promotions to have certain certifications.
