Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. It provides both Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.
Microsoft Azure Role-Based Certifications
Microsoft has recently introduced Role-Based certifications for Azure. Role-based certifications are based on specific job roles and the skills required to perform day-to-day activities, rather than just broad coverage of Microsoft product features and services.
