Intro to Cloud

Review the fundamentals of cloud, software-as-a-service, and running teams effectively when migrating to hosted applications.

Investments in cloud allow IT to drive digital transformation

Moving business to the cloud presents a long-term advantage for companies that want to remain competitive in an increasingly digital world. IT teams are moving more of their systems to the cloud enabling the agility and innovation organizations need to respond to change and increase delivery of value. This also allows organizations to leverage economies-of-scale when it comes to security, encryption, and performance that wouldn’t be possible with on-premise infrastructure budgets.

With the flexibility offered through cloud SaaS subscriptions, IT leaders can make sure they’re effectively managing costs while extending the capacity of their internal resources. This includes scaling more affordably, improving team productivity, and reducing overall cost of ownership as compared to on-premise or hybrid cloud environments.
