DecisivenessCloud Architects must have the ability to provide firm, clear perspective with confidence that provides both reassurance that the business is in good hands, but also that the recommended cloud solutions are secure, resilient, cost-efficient, and managed with operational excellence. Decisiveness does not necessarily mean dominant or overriding. Cloud architects can provide guidance from a calm, leading place of domain authority.

Must possess the necessary technical skills to serve as the foundation for cloud architecture planning and management, including basic programming, software development and continuous integration, continuous deployment (CICD), database, networking and security skills, modern application architecture skills, and more.  Industry-recognized certification, such as the new AWS Certified Solutions Architect–Associate certification is highly preferred.
