EXIN launches new DevOps Master Certification
EXIN expands its portfolio with the unique certification EXIN DevOps Master. This DevOps Master certification includes an exam and a training that includes practical assignments to prove the competences of candidate DevOps Masters.
DevOps is a crucial part of an integrated Agile approach. The word DevOps itself is a shortened compound of "development" and "operations". Practicing DevOps emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other (IT) professionals. As a result, building, testing, and releasing software can happen more rapidly and reliably.
Growing demand in the market
The DevOps movement is growing fast. DevOps adoption increased from 66 percent in 2015 to 74 percent in 2016. This year DevOps will continue to evolve to a mainstream strategy (source: Gartner) and standards will emerge. With this growth the demand for DevOps professionals with the right competences will increase. In the last two years, listings for DevOps jobs on Indeed.com increased 75 percent and on LinkedIn mentions of DevOps as a skill increased with 50%.
EXIN CEO Bernd Taselaar: “No other DevOps certification addresses the practice of DevOps and the development of competencies, like the EXIN DevOps Master. Proven skills and competences are exactly what this growing market needs.”
The EXIN DevOps Master certification was developed to meet demand from the market. Global EXIN partners such as Hewlett Packard, Automic, Global Knowledge, Sogeti and TPS certificate Institution in Japan asked for this certification and have been involved with the development.
