Target Audience and Objectives
A clear understanding of cloud computing is a must for students hoping to enter the IT workforce. “In 2012, IDC reported that more than 1.7 million jobs related to cloud computing remained unfilled worldwide. The reason for this is lack of training and certification 1.”

To help prepare them for successful careers in a transforming IT industry, EMC offers free technology-based courseware to faculty through our Academic Alliance program. Specifically, the EMC Cloud Infrastructure and Services (CIS) is a “cloud essentials” course for all IT professionals responsible for server, storage, networking, and applications.

To get started, join EMC and NDG on Thursday, November 6, 2014 for half-day workshop on how you can advance students’ IT skills in cloud computing.

We will present a virtual lab environment designed to introduce students to cloud computing infrastructures. Participants are required to bring a laptop to trial one or more of the labs.

This virtual environment can be hosted by academic institutions to complete labs for the EMC Academic Alliance, VMware IT Academy, and general IT courses. Learn more by taking the free 90 minute self-paced EMC Cloud and IT-as-Services for Business Transformation elearning module. 1IDC Report: 1.7 Million Cloud Computing Jobs Remain Unfilled, Gap Widening, 2013
