InsightaaS Cloud Training for Business Professionals

Working from the best practices materials developed by the Toronto Cloud Business Coalition, InsightaaS has developed a new Certified Cloud Business Advisor cloud training curriculum.

The training, which can be delivered online or via in-house sessions, covers eight key areas:

  • Cloud business models, metrics and imperatives (cloud positioning for non-IT executives)
  • Planning for the cloud/cloud strategy: Enterprise
  • Planning for the cloud/cloud strategy: SMB
  • Delivering cloud via public, private and hybrid cloud environments
  • Advanced cloud application adoption and enablement
  • Cloud standards and security
  • Cloud skills requirements and development
  • Governance, risk and compliance (GRC) in the cloud

In each module, trainees are given readings developed by TCBC’s expert members, and then asked to address 3-5 brief essay questions to demonstrate understanding of the topic and its business relevance/importance; due to the essay format, trainees receive a level of guidance/mentoring not available in traditional multiple-choice testing. Trainees who successfully complete all eight modules receive certification as a Certified Cloud Business Advisor; those who achieve at least three “exceptional” evaluations receive an Honours designation.

The curriculum arises from and responds to widespread demand for business-level cloud training. At launch, InsightaaS had students from more than a dozen countries.
