You read that right. According to Google, their Professional Cloud Architect certification is the highest paying certification of 2019.
Google Cloud is a hyperscale network of servers and services that many companies and individuals use to build and run applications. Unlike the competition, Google Cloud billing is extraordinarily granular, billing per second instead of per minute for resources utilized. Those needing to scale globally or run sophisticated analytics, Artificial Intelligence, and Big Data applications requiring massive storage appreciate the cost efficiencies and facilities available on the Google Cloud Platform.
