Description

AWS Service Catalog is a great service for making AWS a little more user-friendly for the non-technical crowd. It gives you the ability to create products only with components that have been predetermined and vetted by your IT and Security teams. This forces your end users to create more robust and safer applications almost by proxy. 

In this course, you will learn how to create portfolios of various services that your users can provision within their own AWS accounts, and understand how AWS Service Catalog can be used as a security service to protect your business from unauthorized expenses and possible security vulnerabilities.

Learning Objectives

  • Get a general understanding of AWS Service Catalog and its components, including products and portfolios
  • Learn how to set constraints on products within portfolios
  • Get a practical understanding of how to use AWS Service Catalog to provision products

Intended Audience

This course is recommended for IT Administrators, business leaders, and engineers who want to have a better handle on securely provisioning their AWS Cloud technology.

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this course, having a decent background in computing is fundamental. You should have basic knowledge of AWS and how provisioning works within it. Some familiarity with security and administration within the tech industry would be beneficial but not essential.
