Cloud is on the rise. All companies are transitioning into the cloud and the demand for cloud-native skills including DevOps is ever-growing. On this Diploma in DevOps course, you will use tools like Kubernetes and Docker, paired with DevOps oriented programming languages like Python and Go.

Successful digital transformations require a partnership between IT leaders and the business, and IT leaders must function as the catalyst within their IT organisation to drive digital transformations. The digital transformation also requires the reskilling of IT.  According to Gartner: “70% of employees have not mastered the skills they need for their jobs today, and 80% lack the skills needed for both their current role and their future career.” The DevOps movement is one evolution to change how IT organizations are delivering core technology, services and products to support the business’s digital opportunities.

Being able to build cloud-friendly software is a competitive advantage in the modern jobs market. And, according to David Gonzalez, lecturer and DevOps Consultant with Nearform, DevOps is to technology what management consulting is to business. Not only automation but transformation.
