Dell EMC Introduces New Certifications to Establish and Validate IT Skills of the Future

Dell EMC unveiled new certifications that establish and validate the expertise IT professionals need to build their careers and help organizations compete in the digital economy. Part of the Dell EMC Proven Professional program, these certifications confirm the knowledge and experience needed to accelerate an IT department’s time to transformation.  

Modernizing infrastructure to enable a digital transformation requires a new way of operating and securing IT, and in some cases may require entirely new roles. Recent research conducted for Dell Technologies by Vanson Bourne, specialists in technology research, shows that inadequate skills and expertise is one of the top three barriers slowing digital progress.

The research shows that both formal and informal learning, as well as practical experience are the top ways people want to prepare themselves for the digital future. Dell EMC’s new transformational certifications allow individuals to build their skills and validate their experience while providing a rigorous framework that gives CIOs confidence.
