AWS, you may not have heard of it yet, but it's time you do. AWS stands for Amazon Web Services, and it is the world's leading cloud computing provider. Gartner, a leading research firm, has ranked AWS as the absolute leader in the field of cloud infrastructure and platform services (CIPS).
The demand for cloud computing skills is growing rapidly. The number of active AWS certifications has increased by 29% in the past year, and there are now over 1 million active certifications. However, only 650,000 people hold an AWS certification as an associate, professional, or specialist. This suggests that there is still a significant shortage of skilled professionals with cloud careers.
It is clear that it is in everyone's best interest, including yours, to demonstrate expertise in the areas of AWS and cloud computing. This is especially true given the current high demand for these skills in the corporate world. In fact, all of our graduates have gone on to have successful careers in this field.
Furthermore, AWS is no longer just a player in the startup scene. In Germany alone, 80% of DAX companies are AWS customers. However, they lack the trained experts to take full advantage of AWS's capabilities. This is a great career opportunity for everyone, including you!
