About this Program

It’s a fact that when asked what ‘the cloud’ is, a majority would not refer to it as an actual cloud, the sky, or something related to weather. So, Cloud is now all about storing documents, pictures, videos and even music on the cloud. More so, a life-saver because it simply means never having to say I lost those pictures of your cat that you sent me. But what if you could store your favorite coffee on the cloud and have it available to download in your cup without having to make a trip to your favorite coffee shop? Well the idea is in the works but is that possible…. seemingly not. In any event, the cloud is here to stay and is for everyone, call it a democracy.

Cloud computing has completely changed the way businesses and their consumers store and access their data. As Steve Jobs rightly said, “I don’t need a hard disk in my computer if I can get to the server faster… carrying around these non-connected computers is byzantine by comparison”. The cloud has become a vital component for business as technology becomes embedded in modern life. Every business needs to understand the cloud and how it operates as well as the potential dangers and pitfalls associated with cloud computing. Knowledgeable monitoring and maintenance can be the difference between the success and failure of the technology’s use.

With our “The Cloud and Business” workshop, the participants will discover the specifics of how the cloud can be a successful business tool. Below are the workshop objectives & the course outline.

Key Objectives Of The Course:

  • Understand what the cloud is
  • Recognize risks and benefits
  • Communicate effectively
  • Employ business processes
  • Monitor performance
