The Google Cloud Digital Leader Certification is Google’s newest certification at the time of writing. I am really excited by this certification since the certification brings Google to the same table as AWS/Azure when it comes to entry level certifications.
I took the beta exam in May 2021 and had 100 questions on the exam. The great part for you is that the beta exam is over and now the production exam will have a lot less questions.
The questions seemed to be very similar to how questions would be asked on the Google Cloud Architect Exam. Google loves to make the questions abstract, meaning that if you don’t read it three times and understand Google Cloud best practices you may very select the wrong answer.
The exam asked basic cloud computing questions similiar to the Cloud + Certification from CompTIA while at the same time asked questions that I swear came from the Cloud Architect exam around Google Cloud services such as Cloud SQL, IAM, Kubernetes Engine, Compute Engine and more… (Without the case study of course).
The main goal I understand of this certification is to focus on transforming your enterprise environment from a legacy or Web 2.0 deployment to more a Cloud Native environment on GCP. Effectively, its about transformation of your enterprise around application modernization.
Certification Roadmap. Where the certification fits in. It’s your entry level certification into Google Cloud.
