Cloud Academy is a proud sponsor of the 2019 AWS Summits in Atlanta, London, and Chicago. We hope you plan to attend these free events that bring the cloud computing community together to connect, collaborate, and learn about AWS. These events are all about learning. You can learn how to choose the right database, modernize your data warehouse, and if we see one another, you can learn how to stand up a highly effective training program that scales across your global organization.
Change is difficult for anyone, but it can be particularly difficult at large enterprise organizations. Over the past 18 months, we have been fortunate to earn the trust of countless organizations like Coca-Cola, Thermo Fisher, Turner, Cognizant, and SAS. The challenges these companies face when we meet them are, in many ways, not unique. In working closely with them, we have developed a unique platform to overcome the barriers large organizations can face trying to run relevant, scalable, and measurable training programs.
This May, join Cloud Academy at one of the AWS Summits. You will discover how our data-driven approach yields teams that make the most of their AWS deployments through structured cloud training plans that scale. Stop by one of our booths to see a demo of our platform in action and to all of the features that make Cloud Academy the proven method to launch a technology training program at scale. See how our Assessment Cycles, Skill Profiles, Content Engine, Training Plans, and Hands-on Labs can help you meet your training objectives, fill your skills gaps, and reach your business goals. Whether you’re new to the cloud or an experienced user, our AWS Training Library is a hub of highly-rated resources including Learning Paths, Video Courses, Hands-on Labs, Quizzes, and Exams to put you on the right track for AWS success.
Our subject matter experts will also be on hand to walk you through our latest role-based Training Plan Templates developed and maintained by experts on AWS, Azure, GCP, CI/CD, containers, security, IoT, data science, machine learning, big data, and more.
