"The Cloud" Can you really explain it to a coworker, boss or client? The Cloud really is everywhere these days. It is driving enterprises' digital transformations, has disrupted the models by which modern applications are built and has the potential to bring added value and convenience to clients and savings to a company that embraces it. Add to that the current "skills gap" that companies are facing because there are more Cloud-related jobs that qualified applicants, understanding the Cloud is a worth undertaking.
By the end of the course you will understand what "the Cloud" is, how it is relevant to your business and professional goals, and you will be able to comfortably and confidently explain it to others.
You will also understand the value and utility of a compute cloud from the viewpoint of business executive, IT manager and application developer. This will give you an appreciation for how different user have differing views about what the key values of a cloud are - and which features are most important. This is something to keep in mind when discussing cloud with a coworker or client whose "cloud focus" and understanding is quite possibly not the same as yours.
After taking this course you'll have a solid understanding of a standard definition, but also understand where other's definitions might be leading them astray - and be able to confidently put them back on course.
