I am in the idyllic surroundings of Glanmire in Cork Ireland getting ready for tomorrows delivery of the Professional Cloud Service Manager course. Throughout day one I strip away all the marketing and technological layers to ensure delegates get the real and simple understanding of what cloud computing is all about. We work through key aspects of cloud and take a time warp back to the 1950s.

After lunch there is one hour of hands on workbook assignments for the delegates, then we get to grips with ten critical roles in cloud computing and spend some time on exam prep and review a number of real world case studies.

The final assignment of the day is a sample exam paper which the delegates get to do for homework. Yes you work hard and fast on this course!!

By the end of the day the delegates will be able to describe what cloud computing is in three, yes three, simple words – and more, but this is an achievement in itself.
