Is there anyone who could suggest me some certifications that I can do to grow myself technically? I am a functional business analyst with an experience of 6 years but want to groom myself into techno-functional role. I am interested to learn cloud but not sure how it would help me as a BA.

I think it depends on the Technology which you would like to choose. Future is all about Data and Analytics so you can choose to do a certification in any of the emerging technologies in the data field like AI, ML or Business intelligence tools like Tableau, Power BI Most of the companies these days are preferring Business Analysts with SQL background than just a Functional BA. A certification in SQL might help. Personally I would suggest you to slowly start moving towards Project Management side and start preparing for those certifications.
