Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
Cloud computing has been called a style of computing where massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided “as a service” using Internet technologies to multiple external customers. It is a rapidly maturing technology and has achieved the status of a megatrend according to some sources and its impact is estimated to be of the same order as e-business. Startup to midsize companies are finding this alternative for IT services especially attractive, but the Gartner Group is also predicting a “transformational impact” on the enterprise as well. This course provides an overview of this important technology, some of the cloud service providers as well as some of the risks and challenges involved.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
