What is the Managing Cloud 2-Day Master Class?

The Managing Cloud 2-Day Master Class is hands-on, practical and relevant. It is designed to upskill both IT and non-IT professionals in the fundamentals of cloud and cloud-based-services.

This Master Class focuses on answering the question ‘What is Cloud?’ This is achieved by understanding the basic fundamentals of cloud and putting these into a wider context for the organisations.

Initially, delegates are taken through The Cloud Challenge™. This is the first workshop, where delegates identify how little they actually know about the basics of cloud and their inability to put cloud into context.

Benefits of cloud are highlighted and then challenged from an organisation and consumer viewpoint.  Several hands-on learning activities are conducted each day to put theory into real-life practice and keep delegates engaged, refreshed and excited throughout the two days.

 

What challenges does the Managing Cloud 2-Day Master Class address?

Today, most organisations are using some form of cloud services. Many organisations have moved to cloud expecting to achieve cost-savings, increase their agility and drive innovation. However, many organisations have not found the cost-savings, agility or innovation which they looked for and are now asking the question, why is this?

 

Numerous reasons for these challenges including:

  • Lack of training and education
  • Not knowing the value of cloud
  • Inability to update bureaucratic processes to make them agile
  • Wrong expectations from the start
  • Organisations not knowing what they don’t know.

 

This Cloud Master Class addresses these issues and pain points equipping delegates with appropriate skills and tools needed to address these challenges.

 

This Master Class is unique in its design, delivery and contents. Organisations who upskill their people and talent with this Master Class will have experts on board that can help maximise the business opportunities that cloud continues to create. Challenges become opportunities. Opportunities deliver value.
