Cloud computing is not just a technology, but also a new model for organising, contracting and delivering information technology systems. This model has great potential for benefits but also new risks.
The Cloud Technology Associate (CTA) course defines cloud computing and virtualisation, and explains the benefits and applications. Technology is explained in a vendor neutral way. A lab activity is included which enables participants to understand the cloud in a practical manner. The course is contemporary with the inclusion of latest cloud technologies and applications.
The risks of cloud computing are pointed out as well as ways of managing these risks. In the final part of the course the process of making choices in the adoption process of cloud is explained and cloud service management is broken down into details.
The course is an excellent way to prepare professionals who are considering cloud computing in their organisations.
The course allows IT professionals to operate effectively in a cloud environment as they can demonstrate an understanding of the key concepts and relevant terminology.
Exams are not included with the Cloud Credential Courses at this time.
