This CCC Cloud Solutions Architect Certification training course is designed for technology professionals who architect the technology solutions that support the changing requirements due to the adoption of cloud computing, and help organizations leverage the opportunities that cloud is creating. Solution Architects need to understand the impact that cloud is having on business and information architecture, application design, data management, and security architecture and be very familiar with the topology and ecosystems that are being created as a result of increasing adoption of cloud technologies and operating models.

 

What is the CCC Professional Cloud Solutions Architect certification?

This Professional Cloud Solutions Architect (PCSA) certification enables candidates to successfully navigate and support the adoption, development and performance optimization of cloud solutions and services in the enterprise and IT ecosystem. Solution Architects need to understand the impact that cloud is having on business and information architecture, application design, data management, and security. They must be equally familiar with the topology and ecosystems that are being created as a result of increasing adoption of cloud technologies and operating models.

The PCSA certification is designed for senior technology professionals who are designing the next generation of IT solutions and infrastructure. The training covers critical concepts and supplements this with hands-on, practical, exercises and case studies. The certification refers to leading technologies, platforms and cloud standards to provide a real-world context and cement these concepts.
