With the introduction of new technologies on a daily basis, cloud computing is one of the modern technologies that is growing fast. Cloud computing is one of the bigger industries that generate billions of dollars in revenue every year with hundreds and thousands of job opportunities. Many big names are offering unique cloud services to many customers all over the world, such as "Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud, Rackspace, and Microsoft Azure" — with 29% application workload of the overall cloud market.

Microsoft Azure, often referred to as Azure is a cloud computing service operated by Microsoft for application management via Microsoft-managed data centers. Azure is currently one of the leading public cloud service providers out there in the market.

It provides a range of cloud services, including compute, analytics, storage and networking. Users can pick and choose from these services to develop and scale new applications, or run existing applications in the public cloud.

To pursue a career in cloud computing, all major cloud services providers offer career paths and certifications, but Microsoft Azure is a single cloud service provider that offers role-based certifications that are specifically designed according to the market requirements and the job roles. Due to the large adoption of Microsoft Azure cloud services, Microsoft Azure certified professionals are in high demand for developing cloud applications and managing cloud infrastructures.
