Evaluate and Select the Right Cloud Provider

You know the basics of cloud technology and you''re ready to adopt it at your organization, but choosing a provider has proven to be confusing. With the large number of cloud providers, and many of them offering similar products and services, it is hard to determine who to trust with your data. Migrating all or part of your business to the cloud will impact your organization, and it is important to remember that the provider you choose will do the same.

Through case study scenarios and hands-on exercises, this course teaches you how to research providers and differentiate between contenders. Given a list of common business needs, you will use the examples of big cloud players such as Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and IBM Bluemix to research the appropriate provider to meet those needs. You will learn how to assess how well a provider fulfills required services and regulatory requirements. Once you have narrowed your field of choices, you will learn how to interpret the ratings according to given business needs.

You will leave this class with the tools and information you need to map your own business requirements to one or more cloud-based solutions, do your own research, and ask the right questions to determine the solution that best meets your needs.
