Cloud computing is not just a technology, but also a new model for organizing, contracting and delivering information technology systems. This model has great potential for benefits but also new risks.

Professional Cloud Technology Associate starts with proper definitions of cloud computing and virtualization, and explains the benefits and applications. Technology is explained, but mostly in a vendor neutral way. A lab activity is included which enables participants to understand the cloud in a practical manner. Besides, the course is contemporary with the inclusion of latest cloud technologies and applications.

Subsequently, 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 organizations.


This course will be of interest to:

Primary audience:

  • IT Managers and solution consultants
  • IT Specialists (Analysts, Developers, Architects, Testing, etc.)
  • IT Administrators (System, Database, etc.)
  • IT Provisioning and Maintenance (Hardware, Network, Storage, etc.)

Secondary audience includes Sales, Purchase, Audit, and Legal

  • Identify the technical challenges and the mitigation measures involved in cloud computing and virtualization.
  • Understand the latest digitization trends associated with cloud computing.
  • Define cloud security and identify the risks involved in cloud computing as well as the risk mitigation measures.
  • List the steps to successfully adopt cloud services.

Beneficios a obtener:

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. It furthermore provides the foundation needed in order to successfully complete subsequent vendor-specific training/certification programs and also provides a baseline for the subsequent CCC Professional level certifications.

Participants report that this training allows them to better communicate with their peers on cloud benefits and risks, and that they are in a better position to evaluate vendor proposals for cloud computing.
