Introduction to Cloud Computing:
Cloud computing is defined as Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources,
software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand.
Cloud computing is a paradigm shift following the move from mainframe to client–
server computing in the early 1980s. Details are abstracted from the users, who no
longer have need for expertise in, or control over, the technology or infrastructure “in
the cloud” that supports them. Cloud computing describes a new delivery model for
IT services based on the Internet and it typically involves over-the-Internet provision of
dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources.
This workshop covers a definition of cloud computing and why it’s important to the
future of IT. It also introduces Key benefits of cloud computing along with challenges
of using cloud computing as well as creating a cloud computing action plan.
Common objections and challenges regarding cloud computing are addressed
to ensure that attendees are prepared for cloud computing success. This course
developed in partnership with the leading cloud computing consultancy HyperStratus,
leveraging its depth of experience with companies like Unilever and Wipro.
