AWS Summit London 2018: Our Top Picks

Cloud Academy is proud to be a sponsor of AWS Summit London coming up May 9-10 at the ICC, ExCeL, London.

Join us in booth S24, Level 1 where our AWS experts will be on hand to answer your questions and walk you through our latest content and newest platform features.

Ask us about your GDPR initiatives and how you can leverage AWS services for compliance

GDPR goes into effect on May 25, 2018—are you ready? All AWS services are GDPR compliant, but are you using the right services to enable compliance? Our AWS Trainer & Specialist Stuart Scott talks GDPR and shares a sneak peek at our newest Learning Path, GDPR: Using AWS Compliance Enabling Services, in this clip:

Talk to us about how the newest AWS releases will affect your deployments

AWS opened its 50th availability zone in London earlier this year, and we expect more announcements around machine learning and security in CTO Werner Vogels’ keynote on May 10. Our AWS experts can talk you through the news and the latest updates for S3, ECS, SageMaker, and more.

See how you can take more control over how your teams build cloud skills. Let us introduce you to our new feature, Training Plans, now available on Cloud Academy. Our solutions experts will show you how easy it is to assign Learning Paths to teams, manage training cycles, and measure skill development for cloud transformation, new hire onboarding, and any longer-term learning initiative.
