• CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ beta exam launched

        • CompTIA has launched a beta exam for its CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ credential. CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ validates the knowledge and skills required to make business decisions about cloud products and services. 

          The new certification is intended for both business and technology professionals responsible for evaluating the business value of cloud technologies and making informed decisions and recommendations for their organisation.

          Dr. James Stanger, Chief Technology Evangelist for CompTIA said, “the cloud has sparked an evolution in thinking about the role of technology; from a behind-the-scenes tactical tool to a valuable strategic asset that turns businesses into digital organisations and makes greater innovation possible.

          “But to unlock its true value, decision-makers must have a clear understanding about cloud technologies and their potential business impacts. Individuals who are CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ certified have demonstrated that they have the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions and recommendations on the business case for the cloud.”

          The CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ beta exam has been significantly changed and updated with 80 per cent to 90 per cent new content that addresses market demand and employers’ needs for professionals with validated cloud business skills.

          Areas covered in the exam include:

          ·       The components of what should be included in a comprehensive cloud assessment

          ·       The business, financial and operational aspects of implementing cloud-based technologies

          ·       Security, risk management and compliance threats and solutions evaluated from a business perspective

          ·       New technology concepts, such as data analytics, the Internet of Things and blockchain, and how they relate to cloud services

          Kristin Ludwig, Director, Product Management, CompTIA added, “these concepts are now covered in great detail in the certification exam. CompTIA is unique in that we approach these issues from a vendor-neutral perspective. That’s a critical differentiator because many organisations have embraced a multi-cloud environment employing the services of multiple cloud vendors.”

          CompTIA recommends that candidates for the beta exam have between six and twelve months of work experience as a business analyst in an information technology environment with some exposure to cloud technologies.

          Individuals who earn a passing score on the beta exam will become CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ certified. Beta test takers will be notified of test results after the launch of the official new exam, which is scheduled for mid-November.

          The CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ beta exam (CL1-002) is available worldwide (except for China and India) in an English language version. To register for the beta exam visit http://www.perarsonvue.com/comptia/.
