It's not just tech professionals who need to improve their cloud skills. As more and more businesses launch in or migrate to the cloud, it's key that every individual in an organization understand the cloud computing space and the impact it is having on all aspects of a company.

This Cloud Computing for Business Professionals learning path covers cloud starting with the basics, defining what cloud computing is in order to make sure you have the context you need to understand how to make key business decisions. We look at different deployment and service models, along with key cloud concepts and some use cases for cloud technology.

Next, we look at how cloud integration affects the internal business operations across the organization, including which business dynamics are affected, contractual obligations, and risks inherent in operating your business in the cloud. Some of you will already be working for an organization that's made the leap, and some will be considering plans to migrate, but no matter what, understanding the impact of what it means for your business to move to the cloud will be valuable.

Finally, we provide an overview of the major public cloud platforms so you can understand the similarities and differences.

Take all together, this learning path provides any business professional with the information they need to make critical decisions from their business, from whether to migrate to the cloud, to which platforms to consider, to mitigating the risks, and ultimately, to being able to operate most effectively using the technology that's transforming enterprises around the globe.
