Getting to cloud benefits quickly and safely
Cloud computing is the leading IT delivery revolution. Picking up speed from 2010 onwards, we can expect that it will be the dominant IT delivery model in 2020.
There is a lot of confusion around cloud, cloud models, fears around security, inflated expectations and 'cowboys' promising the moon. This course will help separate hype from applicability.
Who is this for?
Cloud computing fundamentally reshapes the jobs of everybody working professionally with IT, whether you are an IT professional, an auditor, or a business IT user. Learn how to update your skills to work in the cloud.
Content and structure of this course
Based on hundreds of examples and questions from students of my earlier cloud courses, I have distilled the essential elements for navigating the cloud journey
The course currently has 8 sections, 20+ lectures with more than 2 hours of content and is regularly being expanded.
The first section explains how the cloud came to be and how it is another disruptive innovation.
Then we give an overview of the 8-step cloud adoption roadmap.
Cloud is about service, and in the section on service engineering we will find out how to analyse these services for quality.
Technology examples is another section, in which we have both architecture diagrams as well as suggestions for hands-on exercises.
No cloud training is complete without learning to identify the important risks and how you can start handling them.
We can then revisit the 8-step cloud adoption roadmap to see where all the bits fit in.
The course also has an extensive extra resources section, dedicated to more specific situations.
What you will get out of this course
This is the quickest way to get you and your team focused on the right steps in cloud adoption. The instructor is also regularly adding content on the basis of your feedback.
I am one of the most experienced independent cloud trainers worldwide. Since 2011 I am focussed on developing and delivering cloud computing training, mainly related to business value and business risk of cloud computing.
I have delivered the CCSK cloud security training over 100 times myself in more than a dozen countries. On top of that I developed and delivered more cloud training in more countries.
My background is broad. I worked as a researcher and instructor at Twente University, as a project leader and consultant at EDS and an internet provider, and as an IT strategy, IT risk and digital infrastructures consultant at Deloitte.
