Microsoft Azure CLX: A personalized program to learn Azure
The rise of cloud computing has created demand for proven cloud experts. That’s why we’ve launched the Microsoft Azure Connected Learning Experience (CLX) program, designed to help aspiring learners and IT professionals become Microsoft Azure cloud pros. CLX is a personalized and self-paced journey that culminates in a certificate of completion—allowing you to maximize learning while minimizing time invested.
What is the CLX program?
The CLX program is a four-step program that prepares you for the Microsoft Azure certification exams while optimizing your learning experience and minimizing time invested. The program, which is curated to meet every learner’s unique needs, consists of four steps:
- A knowledge assessment
- A Microsoft Learn study materials review
- A practice test
- A cram session
3 key cloud adoption trends in migrating and modernizing workloads
Moving workloads to the cloud provides more flexibility for organizations to align their IT investments with business needs while benefiting from cloud economies of scale. Modern infrastructure and cloud capabilities can also free up an organization’s IT workforce to focus on workloads and applications that are most meaningful to their customers.
To get a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by our customers and their plans around cloud adoption, Microsoft commissioned a global survey with more than 1200 IT decision makers. The study revealed three key cloud adoption trends:
- Cloud adoption plans remain integral to strategies in uncertain business climates
- Modernization is a key focus for digital transformation
- Hybrid and multicloud interoperability and integration are expected
Microsoft Azure’s defense in depth approach to cloud vulnerabilities
In this blog, we highlight the extensive security commitments from our past, present, and into the future, as well as where we see opportunities for continued learning and growth. This piece kicks off a 4-part Azure Built-In Security series intended to share lessons we’ve learned from recent cloud vulnerabilities and how we’re applying these learnings to ensure our technologies and processes are secure for customers. Transparently sharing our learnings and changes is part of our commitment to building trust with our customers, and we hope it encourages other cloud providers to do the same.
