Opportunities in Cloud Computing

A recent article from CIO Journal indicates that there is an extreme labor shortage (in certain technology areas) that is is leading to upward pressure on wages for IT Workers. This represents a great opportunity for those with certain skill-sets, among which include Java (Oracle certification is mentioned specifically).

The article points out that a key driver of the labor shortage is the expansion of cloud computing. Cloud computing is set up to make life extremely simple for end-users, but the model pushes the complexity to back-end systems which are sophisticated, enterprise-level computing stacks (Oracle has an extensive set of cloud computing solutions). These complex systems require very highly-skilled IT professionals (the best-of-the-best) to successfully develop, implement, administer and maintain them.


What this mean for you is that there is opportunity for those who have the appropriate skills at the appropriate levels. If you want to be a part of this opportunity you should do a self-assessment of your own skill-sets and experience. Based upon your results you can decide where it would be most appropriate to spend your time and resources for the highest return on your investment. By expanding and sharpening your skills and by gaining greater experience you will be better prepared to take advantage of career opportunities (like this) that come along periodically.

As you evaluate your needs remember that Oracle University has a tremendous selection of high-quality eduction offerings (including training and certification) that can you help move your career forward.

Thanks and best of luck!

Hi,
Kindly clarify the following.
1.What would be the ideal certification required for a beginner in Java programming
2.Would a certification in Java programming be sufficient for the individual to work in cloud computing? If not knowledge of which other technology/ies would be required?

Posted by sr on August 12, 2012 at 08:26 PM PDT #

SR,
1. My suggestion would be to start with the Java SE 7 certifications http://bit.ly/MOTbN4. But the answer to this question is largely a personal decision - depending on which version you're familiar with, your current skill/training level and what jobs are available in your region.

2. Regarding this question, I'd suggest that you pose this question to the professionals on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm. They are usually able to provide valuable feedback.

Really confused on where to start in ORACLE CLOUD considering my given skillset

Posted by Naveed on November 27, 2013 at 11:47 PM PST #

Since you have the 11g OCP certification, I'd start with the Database Cloud OCP certification http://bit.ly/GzAlsF.
