I'm a project manager and was looking for ACP 600. But now the ACP 600 has been retired. So now I've two options: ACP 610 & ACP 620. How to decide which one I need to choose?
@Saurav Saxena I would start with what your current company is using. Either Jira Cloud or Jira Server/Data Center. As you will have better success of passing the certification exam for what you are most familiar with (based on what you are using day to day). If you then want to try and also obtain the certification for the other deployment method that is up to you.
For reference ACP-610 replaces the ACP-600, but that is only because there were no Cloud certifications at the time the ACP-600 was first introduced.
I hope that helps you decide.
@Saurav Saxena I'm going to start by saying that if you aren't currently using Jira you should not be considering an certifications at this time. Atlassian recommends about a year of experience using the products before attempting the certifications.
Which route to go depends on your company and may be a better question for the New to Jira group, but I'll try to give you some pointers here (at a VERY high level).
- Data Center is for companies that need to control when they upgrade and where their data is stored.
- Cloud is best for companies that don't that to have to maintain infrastructure for Jira or worry about upgrades. Are comfortable with regular feature changes and want Jira to be accessible for users from anywhere.
I hope that helps!
ACP 610 and 620- both test your knowledge of JIRA as a Project Administrator.
One on Cloud instance on JIRA and the other on the Data Center version.
The topics covered under examination are also identical.. just cloud has more sections like Automations etc.
Best of Luck :)
