Shift Your Career into High Gear with the New Reltio Certification Program

The move to cloud computing and the increasing reliance on data as a driver of competitive business advantage is creating new career opportunities for enterprise architects and data integration specialists around the world. It’s also generating a way for data integrators and service providers to build confidence in their expertise with new and existing customers.

Nothing seems to be hampering the embrace of cloud computing – not a worldwide pandemic, not a slowed-down economy. In fact, today’s economic climate has probably helped accelerate the interest and pace of cloud adoption. Many companies are using a lull in business to transition to native cloud platforms like Reltio Customer 360 to sharpen their master data management capabilities, lower their costs, and prepare for the economic upswing which economists and stock market indicators predict is on the way.

This all seems to be motivating IT professionals – whether independently, at Reltio installations, or within service provider organizations -- to sharpen their skills in cloud-native master data management as a path to increasing their value to their companies, enhancing their career or business opportunities on a broader scale, and boosting their income.  And the momentum is being stoked by a tight IT jobs market.

According to a recent article in CIO Magazine, cloud architects and database administrators ranked second and third (behind security professionals) as the most in-demand jobs for 2021. Another publication, TechRepublic, put aptitude in cloud-native architecture at the top of the list for in-demand skills in 2021.

Reltio Academy and its new Certification Program are right in line with this trend. The revamped courses and new certifications have emerged just in time to help IT professionals prepare for these opportunities. And Academy courses are free!
