AWS Certified Solutions Architect

A staggering 21.7% of respondents in the United States and Canada plan to pursue the Associate- or Professional-level of this certification in 2019. Of all cloud professionals surveyed, 43% are cloud architects who must be able to design and deploy scalable solutions. AWS Certified Solutions Architect demonstrates those critical cloud skills have been achieved.

AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate is also one of this year’s highest-paying certifications, coming in fourth at $132,840. Those pursuing this certification are most likely to be cross-certified in CompTIA, Microsoft and ITIL®.

Eighty-five percent of IT professionals who hold this certification have at least six years of career experience, and of that group, 63% have over a decade on the job.

While most certification exams focus on one primary technology, AWS certifications often cover a couple dozen AWS services. AWS Certified Solutions Architects have verified their skills to:

  • Design and deploy scalable, highly available and fault-tolerant systems on AWS.
  • Lift and shift of an existing on-premises application to AWS.
  • Select the appropriate AWS service based on data, compute, database or security requirements.
  • Identify appropriate use of AWS architectural best practices.
  • Estimate AWS costs and identify cost control mechanisms.
