Certified DevOps Architect
Master the art of orchestrating innovative solutions for Continuous Delivery
Do you wish to be a certified DevOps Architect? Are you keen to learn how to deploy effective and efficient automated pipelines to deliver high quality softwares, reduce risk and costs, and enhance business value? Well..
The “DevOps Architect” certification equips IT professionals with a sound understanding of the DevOps landscape and empowers you to lead the transformation of the organization’s architecture from traditional waterfall or agile to DevOps.
Certification Cost: $95 USD
A DevOps Architect owns the product architecture and is in charge of defining loosely coupled services. An architect ensures that updating services or environments has minimal effect on the end-users.
DevOps Architects have an extremely critical role to play in the success of DevOps organizations and teams. It’s their responsibility to provide a highly reliable, automated, hurdle-free environment to facilitate seamless releases.
In the traditional waterfall approach, each team member had to handle tough situations and obstacles related to design and infrastructure, along their path to delivery, but in a collaborative DevOps team, DevOps Architects take ownership to build a “no-barrier” highway to continuous delivery which others can reap benefits of.
