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!

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver?

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.
