One of the most powerful advantages of Azure is role-based access control which makes it easy to identify everyone and provide them exactly what they need. Given how huge Azure is, the same philosophy should be applied to the training it takes to make you an effective Azure professional. Beyond Azure, Microsoft is now revising its entire approach to role-based training to make learning paths easier to define. Which path will you choose? Here’s some insight into the choices.
Microservices should not run all by themselves. They often need certain code libraries, print, storage, and other resources to help them function which may not be available where they’re running. The easiest way to manage this, and keep everything optimally transportable across cloud networks, is the put each microservice into its own container along with every resource it needs to run. Then all you need to do is to orchestrate the instantiation, movement, and utilization of these containers. Learn more about the most highly transportable way to write software and put it into operation.
You need to expand your knowledge and add new skills to improve your ability to work in the cloud.
Your company wants to make more money, and since you’re employed by them it is their hope that you will contribute to generating more of that money.
This is important to remember as you think about the technology training you want and need to expand your skills to work in the cloud. You’re hoping that your company will send you for that training, but you should also remember that hope is not a strategy!
Consider Yourself an Investment
No, we’re not talking about a horror movie in which astronauts find a cute little baby space creature and adopt it… we’re talking about data.
Microsoft loves Open Source! So declared Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, and for very good reason. More and more of the corporate world is adopting Open Source applications and utilities to run their IT operations. In fact, Microsoft says 40% of all VMs on Azure are running Linux. Learn about the amazing things you can accomplish with Open Source, and how being part of the Open Source Community can benefit your career.
After decades of open warfare on Open Systems, Microsoft has made it very clear that Azure loves Open Source and is an ideal platform for building your Open Systems environments. Here’s how this broadens the horizon for you, your employer, your clients, and the IT community.
Novell. Lotus. Linux. Open Source. Across the history of Microsoft, these were the well-known nemeses. The first two have faded into relative obscurity, but Linux and Open Source have taken a different path.
With the sheer number of new Azure subscriptions being sold every month, the odds are always increasing that the next job you take will have you working on the Microsoft Azure platform. Beyond learning how to manage resources in the world’s most popular cloud, you’ll also need to learn how to keep up with the rapid pace of advancement in this industry-leading environment.
Make the “learning curve” your friend.
Many consider the learning curve to be the great big hurdle between their company and getting value out of their latest investments in information management. They love all the features and capabilities, but know that they first have to have someone learn how to use all of them before they start returning on the investment.
Big data. How many times have you heard this? “Too many” is probably what you are thinking, but “not enough” is really where your head needs to be. Let’s just hope it’s not the first.
