Understanding the “Cloud” - DCEI Releases New Cloud Training Courses

Share Article

Data Center Enhancements Inc. announces the availability of its new suite of Cloud training courses, which focus on educating participants on the capabilities and opportunities of Cloud Computing. An understanding of how to effectively leverage Cloud Computing technology can measurably improve a company's agility, profitability, market share, and ability to compete.

IT operations "in the Cloud" presents new challenges and problems for a company's technical staff.  High quality Cloud training can mitigate this problem, and help to make the transition from legacy to Cloud go much smoother.

Training helps companies put-the-pieces-together for an effective Cloud environment.

Failing to have key individuals who fully understand the ramifications and opportunities available from this disruptive technology will put organizations at a distinct disadvantage.

Data Center Enhancements Inc., in partnership with ITpreneurs, announces the availability of technical training courses focused on the Cloud Computing environment. Courses being offered range from a simple “Cloud Essentials” overview to highly technical courses covering Service Management, Security & Governance, and Cloud Architecture. For greater convenience, courseware is presented as e-learning (self-study), virtual instructor-led (via the Internet), blended (combined e-learning and Instructor-led virtual) and traditional Instructor-led classroom formats.

In a 2012 report, “The InfoPro Wave 5 Cloud Computing Study*”, the estimated worldwide market for cloud computing will grow at 36% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the next four years, reaching a market size of $19.5B by 2016.

The increased complexity and sophistication of modern IT infrastructure demands a carefully planned and designed Cloud environment to ensure optimum efficiency, scalability, security, resiliency, and avoidance of obsolescence. According to H. Randy Cochran, President of Data Center Enhancements Inc., “The rapid adoption rate of Cloud Computing puts a strain on traditional IT training providers. Commercial vendors usually offer Cloud information that’s only relevant to their own products. Traditional educational outlets can provide a more holistic picture of Cloud opportunities, but may lack the breadth and depth of field experience necessary to make the content relevant to their students.”

Data Center Enhancements Inc. leverages the Internet to deliver e-Learning, Virtual, and Blended course formats to students in a location of their choosing, and at their convenience. For those needing a more structured learning environment, Instructor-led classes are offered in cities throughout the Midwest.

Some examples of the courses available in this training suite include:
