In a bid to close the cloud skills gap that's threatening the future of channel partners Exclusive Group has joined forces with Arcitura Education as the only global provider of its Cloud Certified Professional accreditation programme.
The move will enable thousands more channel partners to develop cloud transformation skills, claimed Exclusive Group.
“Channel partners can’t afford to lose their market edge through a lack of cloud competency, they need new skills to complement their experience and technology knowledge so that customers carry on seeing them as relevant to their future,” said Andre Dieball, Global Director, Services at Exclusive Group.
“70-80% of enterprises are experiencing cloud skills crises that risk crucial transformation projects going over time and over budget.
"These projects, collectively worth billions of dollars every year, need independent, vendor-neutral cloud skills that do not favour one cloud platform or vendor over another.
"The ability to become a trusted advisor in cloud matters is a fantastic opportunity for partners, which we believe the Cloud Certified Professional accreditation programme will enable.”
