PALO ALTO, CA, Apr 08 (Marketwired) -- The Cloud Credential Council today announced that VMware has joined the council. Cloud Computing has significant benefits for organizations ranging from improving cost efficiency to the development of completely new business models that leverage cloud, and training and certification play a key role in increasing the successful adoption of cloud. With the adoption of cloud there are many factors to take into consideration to ensure success, one of them being the organizational skills gap related to cloud computing. The Cloud Credential Council (CCC) aims to minimize the skills gap through world-class cloud training and certification. The CCC does this by working with its members and cloud experts to define the required cloud competencies, and subsequently developing cloud courses and exams. "We are excited to be a part of the Cloud Credential Council. Various VMware cloud experts have contributed to the development of the CCC syllabi in a collaborative way with cloud experts from other organizations, and we believe this joint effort will accelerate the overall industry adoption of cloud. The CCC certification cloud courses provide an excellent foundation for VMware courses, and we look forward to offering these initially as part of our Americas curriculum," said Michael Yakiemchuk, Director, Education and Training, VMware. "The CCC appreciates VMware's involvement and thought leadership. Although the CCC certifications are vendor-neutral, they are complementary to vendor certifications. We always recommend candidates to choose a vendor-specific follow-on course/certification. We are currently in discussion with the majority of technology vendors and we welcome all to participate," said Marcel Heilijgers, Executive Director of the Cloud Credential Council. The Cloud Credential Council will release five Professional level cloud certifications this year: CCC Professional Cloud Developer, Solutions Architect, Administrator, Service Manager, and Security/Governance. The syllabi are available for public review on the CCC website. About the Cloud Credential Council The Cloud Credential Council is leading the way in defining global cloud training and certification standards. Together with its members the CCC defines cloud competences, develops training and certification and brings this to market through a global partner and member network. Organizations rely on the CCC to help accelerate successful cloud adoption by minimizing the skills gap of IT and Business professionals.
