Cloud Computing represents a paradigm shift in the 21st century, opening the door to increasingly advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and Machine Learning. Companies have become increasingly dependent on large flows of information, and the demand for security and speed is rising exponentially. When the infrastructure that supports technology undergoes a fundamental structural change, the future of your business and project depends upon understanding the effects of this transition in order to make strategic and informed decisions.

Prior to the start I second guessed the appropriateness of this course given my role as a CTO for a small but growing software company. I can say it ultimately exceeded my expectations and I am very pleased with the program. It was a great blend of hands on real world experience to orient us to the power of new technologies and then we had an opportunity to apply those learnings to our real world.
