I am a network admin. Although Cloud is good in some areas, mostly as a DR site,
I idea of cloud is not taking off very well. Like some places would like u to believe.
Take this into consideration. 20 years ago, most users we using a dumb terminal and this ideas of a PC at everyone’s desk was to high of a cost measure.
Now, agencies are talking cloud.... and the desktop is dead.
I could guess the future of computing will be this great idea, in about 15 years.
Launch your own application from your desktop.
If you want to venture in IT> focus on programming application and database programming. IF you want infrastructure, focus on Security and firewalls.
Note this, a quick certification will get you no ware, you will need a BS.
