CINCINNATI, OH - November 7, 2017 - Powernet's Brent Baker, Manager of Network Services, is officially AWS (Amazon Web Services) certified after having completed the Associate Certification for Solutions Architect exam. This certification represents an expert level of knowledge and experience when designing distributed cloud-based applications and systems on the AWS web hosting platform. Certified professionals are able to provide a greater value to customers while furthering credibility in the channel.
AWS certifications allow professionals to gain technical knowledge of the AWS Platform across several roles and specialties including Solutions Architect, Developer, and Advanced Networking. As more organizations begin their migration to cloud-based services the need for skilled professionals that can develop efficient and cost-effective solutions is higher than ever before. By receiving his certification, Baker joins a small but growing number of professionals to become AWS Certified.
"Being AWS certified is valuable in today's market. The need for AWS professionals is through the roof, however, the number of people who are AWS certified does not come close to matching the current need," says Baker. "This certification will allow Powernet and myself to bring more businesses to the cloud in order to help them scale and grow with AWS."
In order to qualify for the Associate Certification for Solutions Architect, candidates must be able to identify and define requirements for an AWS application while having an in-depth knowledge of a high-level programming language. Candidates must also have at least one year's experience in designing and deploying successful systems on AWS.
"Having team members with industry-recognized certifications such as AWS is a win for Powernet and its customers," says Jill Warren, Director of Network Services. "AWS certifications provide a great opportunity for technology professionals to demonstrate their knowledge and be rewarded while proving to customers that they are receiving expert support from a qualified source."
Baker plans to pursue additional AWS certifications.
