There is a vast amount of data created, captured, copied and analyzed every second and the amount is increasing rapidly. In fact, over the next five years data is expected to grow to over 180 zettabytes. This is creating an incredible demand today and in the future for jobs managing that data.
As data is the renewable resource of any business, employers more than ever are in need of talent with the skill set to consolidate, manage, protect, reuse, and analyze that data. In fact, a quick LinkedIn search on Backup and Recovery jobs in the United States alone returned 10,000+ results.
One of the largest problems companies have today is finding qualified talent, so seeing an individual is certified for a solution, product or role makes the selection process faster and easier when hiring. 93% of IT decision-makers believe a certified team member brings added value above and beyond the cost of certification. In a competitive job market, it is vital to stand out above the rest. Being able to prove timely, relevant, and validated credentials in your skill set can bring you more job opportunities which can help make you more attractive to employers. It’s no wonder that in the IT industry, 87% of professionals have at least one certification.
To address the challenges of enough skilled IT professionals, we launched Cohesity Academy, an all-new data management certification program.
