ZapThink Enterprise Enterprise Cloud Computing Course: The Leading Vendor Independent, Architecture-Focused Cloud Training

The Enterprise Cloud Computing course an intensive, two day “fire hose” of information that prepares you to leverage the Cloud to achieve real business value. We cut through the hype and separate what really works from the noise.

Announcing the new version 3.0 of the course!

ZapThink’s Enterprise Cloud Computing course has no prerequisites, and is appropriate for people with different roles and levels of expertise. This course is valuable for anyone who wants in-depth knowledge about how to succeed with Cloud Computing.

With expanded, updated content on Cloud security, governance, and more. Also includes a step-by-step Cloud tutorial!

What makes the Enterprise Cloud Computing course so special?

  • Vendor independent — We discuss vendors in context, both good and bad. You get a balanced perspective on each vendor we discuss.
  • Architecture focused — The course concentrates on what architects have to do to be successful with Cloud in their own organizations. We balance technology details with organizational approaches. If you’re not an architect you’ll learn how to think like one in this class!
  • Practical — we connect theory to practice with what really works in organizations like yours.
  • Current — we refresh the course on a regular basis to reflect the latest Cloud Architecture best practices.
  • Enterprise context — We place Cloud Computing into the context of large organizations, with complex, heterogeneous IT environments and all the politics and bureaucracy that every large organization faces.
  • Led by globally recognized Cloud and Architecture thought leader — All ZapThink’s courses are developed and led by Jason Bloomberg, President of ZapThink. Jason has been an analyst with ZapThink since 2001 and is the co-author of the new book, The Agile Architecture Revolution.
  • Not too technical, not too high-level — Unlike courses offered by others, we cover the technology without getting lost in the details. We discuss the big picture but connect it to the day-to-day reality of the IT shop.
  • Available around the world — See the event schedule for all the locations we’re offering Enterprise Cloud Computing!

Someone in every class will receive a copy of The Agile Architecture Revolution for free!
