Cloud Computing for Professionals

What is Cloud Computing and can your business benefit from the Cloud? This course will provide decision makers (e.g. Team Leads, Managers, and Project Champions) greater insight into the benefits and options for Cloud computing architectures, services, and applications. With the hyped ”move to the Cloud“, there is much misconception, which may leave decision makers with more questions than answers.

The ”Cloud“ is not just another platform, but a major shift in the underlying technology and approach to solving a business problem. Whether your problem is ”Big Data“ or uncertain demand for services, the Cloud could be your solution.

ClearEdge’s courseware will empower you to make effective and appropriate decisions for your business.


Though prior knowledge of Cloud Computing is not a requirement, it would be beneficial in assessing your current situation.
