Is it worthwhile to get Microsoft Azure certification?
A straight and quick answer to your question will be - YES.
As the whole world is migrating to the Cloud, going for any cloud certifications, even Microsoft Azure is worth.
As per the new Microsoft Azure certification path, you have different certifications from the fundamental level to expert level for different roles such as architect, administrator, developer, and DevOps. Microsoft Azure certifications give a valid recognition to one’s knowledge and expertise on Azure.
But while going for certification, it should be kept in mind that getting a certification alone is not enough. Because the hiring managers don’t prefer certified professionals over practical knowledge and hands-on skills. So, the certification alone is not enough, it will give you an advantage only when you have enough skills.
If you have prior knowledge and experience, you can choose the certification as per your working domain from the new Microsoft Azure certifications, else you can start with AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals.
Wish you the best!
