You should know the basic infrastructure data flow, cloud computing platform before go-ahead for the AWS /DevOps etc. First you need to study Linux to play on this environment

Hi Raj, you can learn linux with automation tools like ansible then start with aws with devops and one more thing devops is a culture it's not a course

You don't need any prior knowledge of cloud/AWS or DevOps to switching to DevOps profile. All you need to know is basics of how project setup works from infrastructure end. You can learn AWS and DevOps from any online course or in person.

My suggestion would be to try to switch to IT infrastructure ( in Azure /AWS) where you do not need to learn much of Scripting/programming. With minimal efforts you will get into IT infrastructure, later once you get a good understanding about Infrastructure then try to learn how you can automate the operations/process then definitely you will look for DevOps culture and tools that will be the right path for you as you are coming from different background. If you directly learn DevOps, you might find it difficult. :)

As they say "Grass on the oter side is always Green". My advise to you would be, if you are good at Finance, you should stick to Finance and grow in same domain. Managers and upper level are also highly paid jobs in India and abroad in Finance domain.

However, if you have made up your mind to move to DevOps which is also high paying job, You will need basic knowledge on 3 things :

1.  Any OS (Linux or Windows Systems administration) - This will help you to know how to connect remotely, manage hardware and resources on Cloud.

2. AWS or Azure or GCP knowledge will certainly help you to understand how to deploy codes on Cloud platform and then do monitoring and testing

3. Basics of Networking will help you to troubleshoot your application and issues

In DevOps you will learn automation, Scripting, Monitoring (Nagios), Automatic Deployment of codes (using Chef/Puppet) etc (Configuration Management), Python etc. 

Happy Learning and wish you good Luck !

Its like "Grass on the other side is always green". If you are good at Finance, I would receommend to stick to Finance domain. However, if you have made up your mind, while it is also true that most of the IT guys are highly paid than any support department, AWS and Devops is a good choice.

I would strongly suggest thayou you should have basic knowledge on multiple things like:

1. Linux and Windows Systems administration (this will cover most of the topics for setting up AWS system)

2. Networking (LAN, WAN, Routing, etc)

3. Basics of Security

4. DevOps will be the next step after completion of above Course including AWS.

Hope that answers your query. Wish you good luck for your career
