The Need for a Comprehensive DevOps Certification Program
To meet the evolving demands of the digital transformation trend and the DevOps movement, Capgemini Academy faced a challenge with their existing DevOps training program.
I think it’s still a growth market.Pieter De Beijer – Professional Agile Trainer, Capgemini Academy
While they initially developed a half-day DevOps Awareness course, the increasing growth and complexity of DevOps necessitated a more comprehensive training program. However, developing such a program in-house would have entailed significant time and financial investments.
We have seen that, when there is a certification exam connected to a training course, learners are more able and willing to take that course.Pieter De Beijer – Professional Agile Trainer, Capgemini Academy
To meet this demand efficiently and cost-effectively, they sought a strategic partnership that would offer ready-made training and certification programs.
Partnering with DASA for Ready-Made Training and Certification
