It’s no secret: Digital transformation has entered businesses, and it’s here to stay. But even as companies continue racing toward fully digital operations, many find themselves at risk of leaving behind their real business drivers: their own employees.


Recently, VMware and Forbes Insights released the results of an annual survey examining the state of digital workspace technologies and their impact on business and digital transformation. Among other key findings, the survey revealed that companies that fail to give employees ready access to the apps they need are almost 3 times less likely to be rated as leaders in digital transformation by their employees.


Conversely, employees that feel empowered with ready access to the tools and applications they need to successfully perform their jobs report a slew of benefits:


  • They spend 17% less time on manual processes.
  • Their team collaboration has increased by 16%.
  • Decision-making has accelerated by 16%.


As digital transformation continues to accelerate, companies will be on the lookout for people with the skills and knowledge needed to deliver the tools and applications, navigate the challenges, and take advantage of the opportunities presented by digital business. Workers trained in cloud and virtualization will continue to be in high demand. But where will that training come from? That’s where the VMware Certified Associate – Digital Business Transformation (VCA-DBT) certification comes in.


Launched in August 2017, the VCA-DBT is our latest entry-level certification for the cloud and virtualization industry. This certification confirms that earners understand how virtualization concepts work to drive forward digital agendas. Additionally, the VCA-DBT certification validates knowledge in VMware products that support VMware Cloud Foundation and Cross-Cloud Architecture solutions, including VMware vSphere, VMware vSAN, VMware NSX, and the VMware vRealize Suite.
