- DP-203 Attemptby /u/teja1394 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 24, 2022 at 3:50 pm
Exam scheduled: 24Sep, 2022 18:00PM IST No. of questions: 43 Time: 100 min Score: 648 - failed Out of 43 questions, there was one scenario given and based on that 5 questions were asked(These questions do not have option to review at last) In remaining 38, there are 5 questions based on scenario and few services were given and asked they're appropriate. Should choose b/w yes or no (These also don't have option to review) My questions are mostly from Synapse and related services, got questions from DataFactory, triggers, stream analytics, syntax questions from mySQL, spark. I felt exam was moderate level and more questions are based on scenarios. Resources I used: Udemy Course from Eshant Garg(Covered most topics in this course, but I feel not sufficient enough to clear exam) Whizlabs practice tests --> decent enough and covered the topics Reason I feel for not clearing: Did not go much through MS Learning paths. Previously I cleared AZ-900,DP-900 in first attempt where I completed learning paths. Will look at my detailed report of exam and will give another shot after preparation! submitted by /u/teja1394 [link] [comments]

- How LG CNS is creating future AI leaders with immersive machine learning trainingby (Training & Certifications) on September 22, 2022 at 4:00 pm
As a Korean technology leader specializing in digital transformation (DX), LG CNS partners with customers to help them achieve digital growth across fields including cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, smart factory, and smart logistics. Towards the end of 2020, LG CNS was investigating how to drive digital transformation and growth within their own ranks to demonstrate and extend their core competitive advantage as a consulting service and system integration service provider. By enhancing their internal teams’ AI capabilities, they would ensure they could provide even more innovation and technical expertise for their customers’ own transformation journeys to maintain their position in the market, and continue to provide creative insights and thought leadership both within Korea and overseas.After investigating several external training programs, LG CNS decided to partner with Google Cloud Learning Services to guarantee they received the right level of training and support to further elevate their world-class team. They recognized and respected Google’s global leadership in AI and machine learning (ML), and believed Google was the only partner that could elevate their company to a global level, in line with their already prominent position within the Korean market. LG CNS’s employees participated in 5 weeks of machine learning and 1 week of machine learning operations (MLOps) training through the Advanced Solutions Lab (ASL) via ASL Virtual. This immersive learning program enabled participants to collaborate and learn directly from Google Cloud engineers and ML experts, without having to attend a Google campus. LG CNS’ participants for this transformative training program were selected based on a strict criteria. They were all considered high performers within LG CNS, and held 1-2 years practical experience in the AI/ML field. With continuous competency development and care, many will progress to become AI development leaders within the company, ensuring LG CNS can remain at the forefront of their field and collaborate with other businesses to fuel their own DX solutions.“I hope that all trainees can grow through the Google Cloud ASL program, which has the world's best AI technology, and I look forward to taking responsibility for leading AI in each division.” — SVP of LG CNSGoogle Cloud Learning services’ early involvement in the organizational stages of this training process, and agile response to LG CNS’s requirements, ensured LG CNS could add the extra week of MLOps training to their program as soon as they began the initial ASL ML course. This productive, collaborative experience demonstrated the strength and flexibility of Google Cloud Learning services, and their capacity to tailor virtual learning content to meet the needs of the specific client and their business objectives.Following the success of this first round in 2021, LG CNS has done ASL ML/MLOps training for another cohort in 2022 to cultivate even more AI and ML expert groups. This empowers LG CNS to build even more capacity within their workforce to continue advancing and developing the most breakthrough technologies to support their customers’ own digital transformation and innovation.To learn more about how you can engage business innovation in your own organization through cloud education services, visit Google Cloud Training & Certification and get started on your own learning journey.Related ArticleDrive digital transformation, get Cloud Digital Leader certifiedDiscover Google Cloud Digital Leader no-cost training and certification discount, and attend free webinar on September 15, 2022.Read Article

- Fun ways to learn besides docs/acg/youtubeby /u/Neverchoosered (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 21, 2022 at 10:57 pm
Hello all. Just seeing if anyone has any cool resources to help study and practice for the az104. I passed the az900 with just the docs but it seemed pretty practical. I have acg and have watched some YouTube videos to learn, along with Microsoft docs. Is there anything else out there to make it more fun? Build something cool and interesting to learn along the way and delete it? I messed around with the AWS cloud practitioner game and it was pretty cool. I haven't been able to find anything online for azure like it or just enjoyable. Sure videos and reads get it done but I get bored too quick and switch to something else.

- A few administrative tips for new ESI users.by /u/IT_ISNT101 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 21, 2022 at 12:17 pm
Hey Everyone, I know there are quite a few ESI users here and after having done a *lot* of the ESI courses and exams I thought it may be useful to add some tips and to see if anyone else has tips they can share about making it the best experience they can. 1) Multi-day invites - potential for marked as not attending. I am currently on a course and the instructor explained that you should NEVER, ever use the same link/incorrect link in calendar (i.e. don't just re-use day 1 invite). Reason for this is that it goes to automatically update your attendance on the course and if the instructor isn't vigilant in making sure everyone attends "in the system" you may not get the credit. I am currently trying to remediate this situation that has happened to me. 2) Check your enrolments. Not everyone wants to take the exam but it is good to have proof that you attended. The link to use is https://esi.learnondemand.net/ - Course attendance will be listed under "My Training" with a completion status - See above warning on that one. I was looking for this and didn't even realise it was there! 3) Check your courses before you click on them to make sure they are correct. I know it sounds obvious but with that many languages and time zones it can be super easy to end up on one at some stupid time or even worse, a language you don't speak. It just pays to make sure and do it in advance so that a cancellation doesn't result in a black mark. 4) Don't be tempted to use your own Azure lab for the labs I know, cloudslice isn't great and its slow BUT the one advantage is that your instructor can actually see your lab and if you get stuck, help figure out what's wrong. They can't do that if you use your own sub. That's it for now. Hope it helps. submitted by /u/IT_ISNT101 [link] [comments]

- DP-900 Exam Prep Questionby /u/HavenHexed (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 20, 2022 at 5:54 pm
I have been through the Microsoft Learn modules, watched John Savill's exam cram, and been through Scott Duffy's videos on Udemy for the DP-900. I bought the exam reference with the intention of reading it through, but it seems way more in depth than what the videos and learn modules presented. I did sign up for the Microsoft Virtual Training Days for the Data Fundamentals. Is all the extra information needed in the book? I am not a data admin or anything. I am more in systems admin with my boss wanting me to learn more about Azure. I have taken the AZ-900 and figured this would be a good one as well. Just trying to figure out if the book is worth the read for the exam. submitted by /u/HavenHexed [link] [comments]

Hi All, I've been studying for az-104 for coming up 5 months, and also using it daily at my job (amongst a barrel of other random IT systems) i am really struggling. i decided to buy the measure up exam and i got 33%. I already failed az-104 once with 685. The next attempt my work has given my a voucher so i can't afford to fail it. i think i did so bad on the measureup because, first attempt and im really tired right now. i think i am just having problems remebering all the stuff. my memory isn't that great, i have anxiety and depression, which really makes that much worse. im actually starting to question if its even possible for me to pass this, i've done so much study and i was so enthusiastic, but now im just dead, my employer thinks im useless because they thought i should have passed it within 3 months. sometimes i try to study and the brain just can't tune in, i just get distracted by any small thing. i really want to focus on it, but i think my passion for this is just gone. what to do? maybe im using the wrong training materials? so far 80% complete on acloudguru az-104 course some of the microsoft learn modules whizzlab practise exams - all complete 4-5 with 80%+ just got the measureup exam today - 33% on first go i've been watching some john savill and also have my own tenant - spun up various vms' player with policy and backups, log analytics workspaces load balancers nsgs. what am i doing wrong? i am beggining to think im just dumb - or its not that im dumb as its not like i can't understand what im reading, i just forget it quite quickly for some reason? submitted by /u/scootscootman1 [link] [comments]

Huge thanks to this subreddit for helping me kick start my Azure journey. I have over 2 decades of experience in IT and this is my 3rd Azure certification as I already have AZ-900 and DP-900. Here's the order in which I passed my AWS and Azure certifications: SAA>DVA>SOA>DOP>SAP>CLF|AZ-900>DP-900>AI-900 I have no plans to take this certification now but had to as the free voucher is expiring in a couple of days. So I started preparing on Friday and took the exam on Sunday. But give it more time if you can. Here's my study plan for AZ-900 and DP-900 exams: finish a popular video course aimed at the cert watch John Savill's study/exam cram take multiple practice exams scoring in 90s This is what I used for AI-900: Alan Rodrigues' video course (includes 2 practice exams) 👌 John Savill's study cram 💪 practice exams by Scott Duffy and in28Minutes Official 👍 knowledge checks in AI modules from MS learn docs 🙌 I also found the below notes to be extremely useful as a refresher. It can be played multiple times throughout your preparation as the exam cram part is just around 20 minutes. https://youtu.be/utknpvV40L0 👏 Just be clear on the topics explained by the above video and you'll pass AI-900. I advise you to watch this video at the start, middle and end of your preparation. All the best in your exam. submitted by /u/_-readit-_ [link] [comments]

- AZ-900 Practice Exam -- is it out of date?by /u/cmh55264 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 17, 2022 at 8:26 pm
Hi all, I am taking my AZ-900 certification exam next week. I decided to take a practice exam on it today and could have done better. As I went through the learning modules I took detailed notes as well as make flashcards for all the key concepts/resources that are available through Azure. I bought the practice exam and took one today and was confused by a number of the questions because they seemed to relate to terminology that I did not take in my notes nor that I remember reading about at all in the learning modules. I am aware that Microsoft did some switching around regarding the requirements of the exam. After looking at what changed, it seems to me that most if not all of the terms I had encountered are no longer tested on. That then made me wonder if the practice tests that are offered now are out of date with the changes to the exam that Microsoft made back in May. For example, I saw many questions about advanced security and I know the newer course content greatly reduced information for this topic. Do any of you know if my assumption is correct or am I just missing something? I know that I still have work to do on my end for full preparation but it struck me odd the number of topics that were on the practice test that seem to either have been reduced or all out removed with the update in May. Any advice for the exam is appreciated too. submitted by /u/cmh55264 [link] [comments]

- Passed AZ-104 this morning with 3 weeks of studyingby /u/ciscogenius320 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 15, 2022 at 10:07 pm
First time post, but this community helped me push through. I passed the AZ-104 early this morning with only 3 weeks of studying. I took the midnight exam ( I’m a night owl). I put in about 3-4 hours a day (some days 5-6 hours) and sacrificed doing the things that I enjoy and even time with family/friends. For anyone who feels as if it is not possible or very tough, I’m telling you that Yes it may be tough, but it will be worth it. I used an Az-104 course from YouTube (A Guide To Cloud), and also the Az-104 lab course on YouTube (Cloud Security Training & Consulting). I also used practice exams similar to the real exam that you can find online. It was a tough one, but if you put the work in-You 2 can pass this exam. I actually thought I failed while in the middle of the test because some questions I have never seen, so I was surprised when I saw “CONGRATULATIONS” lol. Good luck to everyone on their exam journey. submitted by /u/ciscogenius320 [link] [comments]

- Passed AZ-104 exam today with a month prep timeby /u/Mac_PPK (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 15, 2022 at 3:42 pm
Hi All, This sub has been super helpful with tips on my AZ-104 study journey and passing of the exam. So, I also would like to share my own experience. As stated in subject, my company is moving to Azure direction and encouraging us [nice word used - not pushing 🙂 ] to take AZ-104 exam as soon as possible after the training finished. So, I only have about a month to study between exam date and training. Due to my limited knowledge to Azure, I was really scare that I will not be able to pass the exam. But I went through a lot of suggestions on this reddit sub, quora, etc, and got an idea on my exam journey. During my exam prep time, I tried to spent daily at least one hour doing labs during work days after working hour. Walked thru Microsoft Learn materials AZ-104 topics. Watched John Savill's study cram a couple of times. Joined practice exams on tutorialdojo and Whizlabs (Planned to buy from measureup; but it's expensive, so I just decided to split money on those above two) I learned a lot of unnoticed subjects from those practice question sets. Highly recommended to go thru the practice exams; you will find unfamiliar part for sure. Tutorialdojo has closet type of question to actual exam, I'd say. Explore Microsoft Docs for unclear topic from those above exams. In the actual exam, questions on storage part are harder than I expected but questions on Networking part are okay (although I expected them to be more difficult). In the end, I passed but not with highest mark; however, I'm happy that I passed and my journey with Azure will continue. Thank you all and wish you happy Azure journey! submitted by /u/Mac_PPK [link] [comments]

- Drive digital transformation, get Cloud Digital Leader certifiedby (Training & Certifications) on September 13, 2022 at 4:00 pm
As enterprises look to accelerate cloud adoption, it is critical to not only upskill your technical talent, but to focus on skilling your non-technical teams too. Investing in your collective workforce’s cloud proficiency helps ensure you fully embrace everyone’s potential, and make the most of your cloud investment.According to research shared in a recent IDC paper1, comprehensively trained organizations saw a bigger impact vs. narrowly trained organizations, with 133% greater improvement in employee retention, a 47% reduction in business risk and a 22% increase in innovation. This is where Cloud Digital Leader training and certification comes in. Most cloud training and certification is geared toward technical cloud practitioners, leaving non-technical (tech-adjacent) teams with little understanding of cloud technologies. Cloud Digital Leader bridges this gap, providing easy-to-understand training that enables everyone to understand the capabilities of cloud so that they can contribute to digital transformation in their organizations.In a recent fireside chat with Google Cloud Partner Kyndryl, who have achieved over 1,000 Cloud Digital Leader certifications across their organization, they shared how the Cloud Digital Leader training and certification has led to significant time reduction within their pre-sales cycle:“Our sales teams who work with customers and learn about their challenges were able to apply the know-how from their Cloud Digital Leader education and certification. They can now guide the technical solution teams in the right direction, without having to pull them into the discovery phases of their customer interactions. As a result, we operated more quickly and efficiently, as the sales teams were able to speak to the Google Cloud solutions very early on in the sales cycle. This accelerated the sales process, as the sales teams were therefore more confident in their Google Cloud knowledge, saving time and money for us, and the customer.” — Christoph Schwaiger, Google Cloud Business Development Executive, Global Strategic Alliances, Kyndryl.Empower your team’s cloud fluency, and discover your next phase of digital transformation.

- Four non-traditional paths to a cloud career (and how to navigate them)by (Training & Certifications) on September 6, 2022 at 4:00 pm
One thing I love about cloud is that it’s possible to succeed as a cloud engineer from all kinds of different starting points. It’s not necessarily easy; our industry remains biased toward hiring people who check a certain set of boxes such as having a university computer science degree. But cloud in particular is new enough, and has such tremendous demand for qualified talent, that determined engineers can and do wind up in amazing cloud careers despite coming from all sorts of non-traditional backgrounds.But still - it’s scary to look at all the experienced engineers ahead of you and wonder “How will I ever get from where I am to where they are?”A few months ago, I asked some experts at Google Cloud to help me answer common questions people ask as they consider making the career move to cloud. We recorded our answers in a video series called Cracking the Google Cloud Career that you can watch on the Google Cloud Tech YouTube channel. We tackled questions like…How do I go from a traditional IT background to a cloud job?You have a superpower if you want to move from an old-school IT job to the cloud: You already work in tech! That may give you access to colleagues and situations that can level up your cloud skills and network right in your current position. But even if that’s not happening, you don’t have to go back and start from square one. Your existing career will give you a solid foundation of professional experience that you can layer cloud skills on top of. Check out my video to see what skills I recommend polishing up before you make the jump to cloud interviews:How do I move from a help desk job to a cloud job?The help desk is the classic entry-level tech position, but moving up sometimes seems like an insurmountable challenge. Rishab Kumar graduated from a help desk role to a Technical Solutions Specialist position at Google Cloud. In his video, he shares his story and outlines some takeaways to help you plot your own path forward.Notably, Rishab calls out the importance of building a portfolio of cloud projects: cloud certifications helped him learn, but in the job interview he got more questions about the side projects he had implemented. Watch his full breakdown here:How do I switch from a non-technical career to the cloud?There’s no law that says you have to start your tech career in your early twenties and do nothing else for the rest of your career. In fact, many of the strongest technologists I know came from previous backgrounds as disparate as plumbing, professional poker, and pest control. That’s no accident: those fields hone operational and people skills that are just as valuable in cloud as anywhere else. But you’ll still need a growth mindset and lots of learning to land a cloud job without traditional credentials or previous experience in the space. Google Cloud’s Stephanie Wong came to tech from the pageant world and has some great advice about how to build a professional network that will help you make the switch to a cloud job. In particular, she recommends joining the no-cost Google Cloud Innovators program, which gives you inside access to the latest updates on Google Cloud services alongside a community of fellow technologists from around the globe.Stephanie also points out that you don’t have to be a software engineer to work in the cloud; there are many other roles like developer relations, sales engineers and solutions architects that stay technical and hands-on without building software every day.You can check out her full suggestions for transitioning to a tech career in this video:How do I get a job in the cloud without a computer-related college degree?No matter your age or technical skill level, it can be frustrating and intimidating to see role after role that requires a bachelor’s degree in a field such as IT or computer science. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: once you get that first job and add some experience to your skills, hardly anybody cares about your educational background anymore. But some recruiters and hiring managers still use degrees as a shortcut when evaluating people for entry-level jobs.Without a degree, you’ll have to get a bit creative in assembling credentials. First, consider getting certified. Cloud certifications like the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer can help you bypass degree filters and get you an interview. Not to mention, they’re a great way to get familiar with the workings of your cloud. Google Cloud’s Priyanka Vergadia suggests working toward skill badges on Google Cloud Skills Boost; each skill badge represents a curated grouping of hands-on labs within a particular technology that can help you build momentum and confidence toward certification.Second, make sure you are bringing hands-on skills to the interview. College students do all sorts of projects to bolster their education. You can do this too - but at a fraction of the cost of a traditional degree. As Priyanka points out in this video, make sure you are up to speed on Linux, networking, and programming essentials before you apply:No matter your background, I’m confident you can have a fulfilling and rewarding career in cloud as long as you get serious about these two things:Own your credibility through certification and hands-on practice, andBuild strong connections with other members of the global cloud community.In the meantime, you can watch the full Cracking the Google Cloud Career playlist on the Google Cloud Tech YouTube channel.

- Passed GCP Professional Cloud Architectby /u/electricninja911 (Google Cloud Platform Certification) on September 1, 2022 at 6:25 am
First of all, I would like to start with the fact that I already have around 1 year of experience with GCP in depth, where I was working on GKE, IAM, storage and so on. I also obtained GCP Associate Cloud Engineer certification back in June as well, which helps with the preparation. I started with Dan Sullivan’s Udemy course for Professional Cloud Architect and did some refresher on the topics I was not familiar with such as BigTable, BigQuery, DataFlow and all that. His videos on the case studies helps a lot to understand what each case study scenario requires for designing the best cost-effective architecture. In order to understand the services in depth, I also went through the GCP documentation for each service at least once. It’s quite useful for knowing the syntax of the GCP commands and some miscellaneous information. As for practice exam, I definitely recommend Whizlabs. It helped me prepare for the areas I was weak at and helped me grasp the topics a lot faster than reading through the documentation. It will also help you understand what kind of questions will appear for the exam. I used TutorialsDojo (Jon Bonso) for preparation for Associate Cloud Engineer before and I can attest that Whizlabs is not that good. However, Whizlabs still helps a lot in tackling the tough questions that you will come across during the examination. One thing to note is that, there wasn’t even a single question that was similar to the ones from Whizlabs practice tests. I am saying this from the perspective of the content of the questions. I got totally different scenarios for both case study and non case study questions. Many questions focused on App Engine, Data analytics and networking. There were some Kubernetes questions based on Anthos, and cluster networking. I got a tough question regarding storage as well. I initially thought I would fail, but I pushed on and started tackling the multiple-choices based on process of elimination using the keywords in the questions. 50 questions in 2 hours is a tough one, especially due to the lengthy questions and multiple choices. I do not know how this compares to AWS Solutions Architect Professional exam in toughness. But some people do say GCP professional is tougher than AWS. All in all, I still recommend this certification to people who are working with GCP. It’s a tough one to crack and could be useful for future prospects. It’s a bummer that it’s only valid for 2 years. submitted by /u/electricninja911 [link] [comments]

- Passed GCP: Cloud Digital Leaderby /u/Kalad1nBrood (Google Cloud Platform Certification) on August 12, 2022 at 11:38 pm
Hi everyone, First, thanks for all the posts people share. It helps me prep for my own exam. I passed the GCP: Cloud Digital Leader exam today and wanted to share a few things about my experience. Preparation I have access to ACloudGuru (AGU)and Udemy through work. I started one of the Udemy courses first, but it was clear the course was going beyond the scope of the Cloud Digital Leader certification. I switched over AGU and enjoyed the content a lot more. The videos were short and the instructor hit all the topics on the Google exam requirements sheet. AGU also has three - 50 question practices test. The practice tests are harder than the actual exam (and the practice tests aren't that hard). I don't know if someone could pass the test if they just watched the videos on Google Cloud's certification site, especially if you had no experience with GCP. Overall, I would say I spent 20 hrs preparing for the exam. I have my CISSP and I'm working on my CCSP. After taking the test, I realized I way over prepared. Exam Center It was my first time at this testing center and I wasn't happy with the experience. A few of the issues I had are: - My personal items (phone, keys) were placed in an unlocked filing cabinet - My desk are was dirty. There were eraser shreds (or something similar) and I had to move the keyboard and mouse and brush all the debris out of my work space - The laminated sheet they gave me looked like someone had spilled Kool-Aid on it - They only offered earplugs, instead of noise cancelling headphones Exam My recommendation for the exam is to know the Digital Transformation piece as well as you know all the GCP services and what they do. I wish you all luck on your future exams. Onto GCP: Associate Cloud Engineer. submitted by /u/Kalad1nBrood [link] [comments]

Hey so I would like to start my cloud journey. I just graduated in may and I’m lucky to have gotten a job in June. The company uses AWS the problem is I don’t see myself staying here long term. I currently do some front and back but I’d like to move more into cloud maybe later in life. I have used AWS and GCP on some personal projects nothing too intense. So I’d consider myself a noob. Here are my questions. How much preparation do you think is required for the cloud practitioner? After the CP I’d like to get a solutions architect dev architect I think and afterwards get the security specialist. Is this plan feasible, what would you change ? Last question something that might trigger a few, I’m afraid of vendor lock in, I know my company uses AWS and the best move to take would be to stick with them but here in France I see that GCP is more lucrative I am thinking of maybe doing just CP from AWS and pivoting, what do you think about this strategy, if any, what advice would you give to help me pick a platform or maybe you could tell me why you chose what you chose thanks in advance submitted by /u/Themotionalman [link] [comments]

- ML Engineers: Partners for Scaling AI in Enterprisesby (Training & Certifications) on August 4, 2022 at 4:00 pm
Enterprises across many industries are adopting artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) at a rapid pace. Many factors fuel this accelerated adoption, including a need to realize value out of the massive amounts of data generated by multichannel customer interactions and the increasing stores of data from all facets of an enterprise's operations. This growth prompts a question: what knowledge and skill sets are needed to help organizations leverage and scale AI and ML? To answer this question, it’s important to understand what types of transformations enterprises are going through as they aim to make better use of their data.Growing AI/ML Maturity Many large organizations have moved beyond pilot or sample AI/ML use cases within a single team to figuring out how to solidify their data science projects and scale them to other areas of the business. As data changes or gets updated, organizations need ways to continually optimize the outcomes from their ML models. Mainstreaming Data Science Data science has moved into the mainstream of many organizations. People working in various line-of-business teams — such as product, marketing and supply chain — are eager to apply predictive analytics. With this growth, decentralized data science teams are popping up all over a single enterprise. But many people looking to apply predictive techniques have limited training in data science or limited knowledge of the infrastructure fundamentals for production-scale AI/ML. Additionally, enterprises are faced with a proliferation of ad hoc technologies, tools and processes. Increasing Complexity of Data Having achieved some early wins, often with structured or tabular data use cases, organizations are eager to derive value out of the massive amounts of unstructured data, including from language, vision, natural language and other categories. One role that organizations are increasingly turning to is the ML engineer. What is a Machine Learning Engineer?I have observed that as organizations mature in their AI/ML practices, they expand from hiring mainly data scientists toward hiring people with ML engineering skills. A review of hundreds of ML engineer job postings sheds light on why this role is one way to meet the transformative needs of the enterprise. Examining the frequency of certain terms in the free text of the job postings surfaces several themes:SOFTWARE ENGINEERINGML engineers are closely affiliated with the software engineering function. Organizations hiring ML engineers have typically achieved some wins in their initial AI/ML pilots and they are moving up the ML adoption curve from implementing ML use cases to scaling, operationalizing and optimizing ML in their organizations. Many job postings emphasize the software engineering aspects of ML over the pure data science skills. ML engineers need to apply software engineering practices and write performant production-quality code. DATAEnterprises are looking for people with the ability to create pipelines or reusable processes for various aspects of ML workflows. This involves both collaborating with data engineers (another in-demand role) and creating the infrastructure for robust data practices throughout the end-to-end ML process. In other words, ML engineers create processes and partnerships to help with cleaning, labeling and working with large scale data from across the enterprise. PRODUCTIONMany employers look for ML engineers who have experience with the end-to-end ML process, especially taking ML models to production. ML engineers work with data scientists to productionize their work, building pipelines for continuous training, automated validation and version control of the model. SYSTEMSMany ML engineers are hired to help organizations put the architecture, systems and best-practices in place to take AI/ML models to production. ML engineers deploy ML models to production either on cloud environments or on-premise infrastructure. The emphasis on systems and best practices helps to drive consistency as people with limited data science or infrastructure fundamentals learn to derive value from predictive analytics. This focus on systematizing AI/ML is also a critical prerequisite for developing an AI/ML governance strategy. This qualitative analysis of ML Engineering jobs is not based on an assessment of a specific job posting or even one specific to the enterprise I work in. Rather, it reflects a qualitative evaluation of general themes across the spectrum of publicly available job postings for ML engineers—a critical role for enterprises to scale AI/ML.In what teams do ML Engineers work?Within enterprises, ML engineers reside in a variety of teams, including data science, software engineering, research and development, product groups, process/operations and other business units.What industries seek talent to help productionize ML?While demand for ML engineers is at an all-time high, there are several industries that are at the forefront of hiring these roles. The industries with the highest demand for ML engineers include computers and software, finance and banking and professional services. As AI and ML continue to grow and mature as a practice in enterprises, ML engineers play a pivotal role in helping to scale AI/ML usage and outcomes. ML engineers enable data scientists to focus on what they do best by establishing infrastructure, processes and best practices to realize business value from AI/ML models in production. This is especially the case as data volumes and complexity grows. Where to begin with building AI and ML skills? Google Cloud Skills Boost offers a number of courses that can help your teams build ML engineering skills on their path to achieving the Professional Machine Learning Engineer certification.

- Google helps Indonesia advance education on cloud, machine learning, and mobile development through Bangkit academyby (Training & Certifications) on June 16, 2022 at 4:00 pm
Indonesia is leading the way for digital transformation in Southeast Asia. According to Google’s e-Conomy South East Asia report, the country’s 2030 Gross Merchandise Value - the value of online retailing to consumers - could be twice the value of the whole of Southeast Asia today. This growth means that many companies need more qualified IT graduates and employees with digital skills than they have today. Fast-growing tech companies need more qualified IT graduates, and employees with digital skills. According to the World Bank, Indonesia needs an additional nine million people with digital skills by 2030. The shortage of technical talent reiterates the need to invest in a reliable skills pipeline. Following years of digital talent developments in Indonesia, Google has become a supporter of Bangkit, an academy designed to produce high-caliber technical talent for Indonesian technology companies and startups. Bangkit has facilitated a multi-stakeholder collaboration between Google, government, industry, and universities across Indonesia. Last year, the President of Indonesia and the Ministry of Education and Culture, Research, and Technology, acknowledged Bangkit’s significant impact, with 3,000 students completing nearly 15,000 courses and specialisations. Building on last year’s success, Bangkit started its 2022 program in February, offering three learning paths to students:Cloud computing with Google Cloud, preparing students for the Google Associate Cloud Engineer certification. Some of the course components are also available online Mobile development with Android, preparing students for the Google Associate Android Developer exam. An online version is available here. Machine learning with Tensorflow, getting students ready to take the Tensorflow Developer certification. Some of the online courses are available here for others.Bangkit 2022 has enrolled 3,100 university students who will take a five month study course, obtaining university study credit, as well as industry certifications. The program accepts diverse cohorts of people who are passionate about preparing for a tech career in the near future, with support and encouragement for women, people with disabilities, and students from across Indonesia to apply. Since its pilot in 2019, Bangkit has been guided by three principles: Industry-led: provides curriculum and instructors from industry experts, including Google, GoTo and Traveloka. Instructors include key figures such as Laurence Moroney (Google, Lead AI Advocate), Google Developer Experts, and other committed professionals. Immersive: combines online learning methods conducted in both individual and group settings. Interdisciplinary: contains knowledge and best practices in tech, soft skills, and English to provide complete career readiness. The program runs from February to July 2022, and has a 900-hour curriculum throughout the 18-week learning experience. Benefits for students participating in Bangkit include:Study credit conversion Job opportunities at our career fairGoogle Cloud, TensorFlow and AAD exam vouchersIncubation funds and mentorship support from industryTowards the end of Bangkit 2022, students will team up for the Capstone Project challenge to propose solutions to some of the nation’s most pressing problems, such as environmentalism, accessibility, and more. The top 15 teams will be selected to receive funding to incubate their capstone projects. These education and career-preparedness offerings are provided at no cost.Google is partnering with industry, governments, universities, and employers to help meet the skill demands of today. From supporting the State of Ohio to offer tech skills to residents, to working with the University of Minnesota-Rochester to create a customized health sciences degree program, Google is here to help our partners prepare those they serve for a cloud-first world.

- Why IT leaders choose Google Cloud certification for their teamsby (Training & Certifications) on May 27, 2022 at 4:00 pm
As organizations worldwide move to the cloud, it’s become increasingly crucial to provide teams with confidence and the right skills to get the most out of cloud technology. With demand for cloud expertise exceeding the supply of talent, many businesses are looking for new, cost-effective ways to keep up.When ongoing skills gaps stifle productivity, it can cost you money. In Global Knowledge’s 2021 report, 42% of IT decision-makers reported having “difficulty meeting quality objectives” as a result of skills gaps, and, in an IDC survey cited in the same Global Knowledge report, roughly 60% of organizations described a lack of skills as a cause for lost revenue. In today’s fast-paced environment, businesses with cloud knowledge are in a stronger position to achieve more. So what more could you be doing to develop and showcase cloud expertise in your organization?Google Cloud certification helps validate your teams’ technical capabilities, while demonstrating your organization’s commitment to the fast pace of the cloud.What certification offers that experience doesn’t is peace of mind. I’m not only talking about self-confidence, but also for our customers. Having us certified, working on their projects, really gives them peace of mind that they’re working with a partner who knows what they’re doing. Niels Buekers, managing director at Fourcast BVBAWhy get your team Google Cloud certified?When you invest in cloud, you also want to invest in your people. Google Cloud certification equips your teams with the skills they need to fulfill your growing business. Speed up technology implementation Organizations want to speed up transformation and make the most of their cloud investment.Nearly 70% of partner organizations recognize that certifications speed up technology implementation and lead to greater staff productivity, according to a May 2021 IDC Software Partner Survey. The same report also found that 85% of partner IT consultants agree that “certification represents validation of extensive product and process knowledge.”Improve client satisfaction and successGetting your teams certified can be the first step to improving client satisfaction and success. Research of more than 600 IT consultants and resellers in a September 2021 IDC study found that “fully certified teams met 95% of their clients’ objectives, compared to a 36% lower average net promoter score for partially certified teams.”Motivate your team and retain talentIn today’s age of the ongoing Great Resignation, IT leaders are rightly concerned about employee attrition, which can result in stalled projects, unmet business objectives, and new or overextended team members needing time to ramp up. In other words, attrition hurts.But when IT leaders invest in skills development for their teams, talent tends to stick around. According to a business value paper from IDC, comprehensive training leads to 133% greater employee retention compared to untrained teams. When organizations help people develop skills, people stay longer, morale improves, and productivity increases. Organizations wind up with a classic win-win situation as business value accelerates. Finish your projects ahead of scheduleWith your employees feeling supported and well equipped to handle workloads, they can also stay engaged and innovate faster with Google Cloud certifications. “Fully certified teams are 35% more likely than partially certified teams to finish projects ahead of schedule, typically reaching their targets more than two weeks early,” according to research in an IDC InfoBrief.Certify your teamsGoogle Cloud certification is more than a seal of approval – it can be your framework to increase staff tenure, improve productivity, satisfy your customers, and obtain other key advantages to launch your organization into the future. Once you get your teams certified, they’ll join a trusted network of IT professionals in the Google Cloud certified community, with access to resources and continuous learning opportunities.To discover more about the value of certification for your team, download the IDC paper today and invite your teams to join our upcoming webinar and get started on their certification journey.Related ArticleHow to become a certified cloud professionalHow to become a certified cloud professionalRead Article

- How we’re keeping up with the increasing demand for the Google Workspace Administrator roleby (Training & Certifications) on April 29, 2022 at 4:00 pm
We’ve rebranded the Professional Collaboration Engineer Certification to the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification and updated the learning path. To mark the moment, we sat down with Erik Geerdink from SADA to talk about how the Google Workspace Administrator role and demand for this skill set has changed over the years. Erik is a Deployment Engineer and Pod Lead. He holds a Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certificationand has worked with Google Workspace for more than six years.What was it like starting out as a Google Workspace Administrator?When I first started, I was doing Google Workspace Support as a Level 2 Administrator. At that time, there were fewer admin controls for Google Workspace. There were calendar issues, some mail routing issues, maybe a little bit of data loss prevention (DLP), but that was about it.About 5 years ago, I transferred into Google Deployment and really got to see all that went on with deploying Google Workspace and troubleshooting advanced issues. Since then, what you can accomplish in the admin console has really taken off. There’s still Gmail and Calendar configurations, but the security posture that Google offers now—they’ve really upped their game. The extent of DLP isn’t just Gmail and Drive anymore; it extends into Chat. And we’re doing a lot of Context-Aware Access to make sure users only have as much access as IT compliance allows in our deployments. Calendar interop, which allows users in different systems to see availability, has been a big area of focus as well.How has the Google Workspace Administrator role changed over the last few years? It used to be that you were a systems admin who also took care of the Google portion as well. But with Google Workspace often being the entry point to Google Cloud, we’ve had to become more knowledgeable about the platform as a whole. Now, we not only do training with Google Workspace admins for our projects, we also talk to their Google Cloud counterparts as well.Google Workspace is changing all the time, and the weekly updates that Google sends out are great. As an engineering team, every week on Wednesday, we review each Google Workspace update that’s come out to understand how they affect us, our clients, and our upcoming projects. There’s a lot to it. It’s not just a little admin role anymore. It’s a strategic technology role.What motivated you to get Google Cloud Certified?I spent the first 15 years of my career doing cold server room roles, and I knew I had to get cloudy. I wanted to work with Google, and it was a no-brainer given the organization’s reputation for innovation. I knew this certification exam was the one to get me in the door. The Professional Google Workspace Administrator certification was required to level up as an administrator and to make sure our business kept getting the most out of Google Workspace. How has the demand for certified Google Workspace Admins changed recently? Demand has absolutely gone up. We are growing so much, and we need more professionals with this certification. It’s required for all of our new hires. When I see a candidate that already has the certification, they go to the top of the list. I’ll skip all the other resumes to find someone who has this experience. We’re searching globally—not just in North America—to find the right people to fill this strategic role.Explore the new learning pathIn order to keep up with the changing demands of this role, we’ve rebranded the Professional Collaboration Engineer Certification to the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification and updated the learning path. The learning path now aligns with the improved admin console. We’ve replaced the readings with videos for a better learning experience: in total, we added 17 new videos across 5 courses to match new features and functionality.
