I already have Microsoft Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions and MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure

I am very happy because I already have the Microsoft Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions certification. 

"This exam is for candidates who are interested in validating their Microsoft Azure solution design skills. Candidates should know the features and capabilities of Azure services to be able to identify tradeoffs and make decisions for designing public and hybrid cloud solutions. Candidates who take this exam are expected to be able to define the appropriate infrastructure and platform solutions to meet the required functional, operational, and deployment requirements through the solution lifecycle."

When consulting the Portuguese with this certification in the Microsoft Certification Profiles I noticed that there are not many and I was very happy.

The best part is that I am too MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure because I already had the Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions and Implementing Microsoft Azure Solutions.

Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certification: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure validates the skills needed to manage modern and highly effective data centers with expertise in identity and system management, virtualization, storage, and networking.

The MCSE certification can be obtained as follows:
  1. Obtaining a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA).
  2. Obtain approval at one of the following elective exams during the calendar year 2017.
You can find more information on https://www.microsoft.com/pt-br/learning/mcse-cloud-platform-infrastructure.aspx

Would you recommend someone to attend and take the Microsoft certifications?
YES, especially MCSE.
