Cloud and Certification

The move to the cloud and cloud adoption will effect many working in IT, as an moderator on the TechNet forum for Education and Certification I see many questions on what certification to acquire to be ready for the demand on Cloud specialists.How should you invest your time and money to be ready for the coming years and what certification will customers and employers most likely ask when they recruit for Cloud related jobs?

Cloud adoption is now in a transition and hybrid period and this is very likely to remain so for several years. Not all services/data/functionally can be moved to Cloud.  Some things will never move to the cloud for security,  compliance or legacy reasons.
