Why Get Google Cloud Certified?

Google Cloud Platform is one of the top three global  cloud providers and with the growth of a hybrid approach to cloud service providers GCP is certain to remain in the mix of solutions used by companies across the globe.

The shortage of cloud computing related skills across the world is even more acute with respect to GCP;  resulting in lucrative opportunities for those with the required skills and experience.

Google Cloud Platform provides a plethora of services that can be leverage in a myriad of IT careers from scalable infrastructure to artificial intelligence and machine learning and data science.  Get GCP certified and turbo boost your career.

Google GSuite and Google Chrome Enterprise

GCP is built for the hybrid cloud allowing easy integration with other cloud providers and on-premises solutions that don't lock you in to a single provider. 

But two of Google most compelling services are G Suite and Google Chrome Enterprise. These are compelling solutions for businesses small or large with the shift to remote work and accessible-from-anywhere services.

Take advantage of the huge opportunities that exist to migrate customers to GSuite and Google Chrome enterprise but getting GSuite and Google Chrome Enterprise certified.
