Next Gen IT Industry

The IT industry is being redefined. The digital age now features what IDC terms the “3rd Platform1 ”, built on a foundation of mobility, cloud, big data, and social. Today’s data centers, built largely on “2nd Platform” technologies, represent the physical foundation underneath the cloud, and are thus a crucial component of the 3rd Platform. Graduates starting careers in IT will need to be knowledgeable on the technologies of both platforms in order to help find new ways to innovate around existing infrastructure, and dive into a future of 3rd Platform computing.


Cloud Infrastructure and Services

Gain the skills needed to make informed decisions on technologies, processes, and mechanisms required to build a cloud infrastructure. The course introduces the cloud computing reference model which includes five fundamental layers (physical, virtual, control, orchestration, and service) and three cross-layer functions (business continuity, security, and service management).

Data Science and Big Data Analytics

Providing 40 hours of content, this ‘open’ course takes a hands-on practitioner’s approach to the foundational techniques and tools required for data science and big data analytics. The course focuses on concepts, principles, and techniques applicable to any technology environment and industry and establishes a baseline that can be enhanced by training.

Information Storage Management

Covering a broad range of concepts and principles including storage systems, storage networking and virtualization, business continuity, and storage security and management.
Providing 40 hours of content, ISM is the only course of its kind to fill the knowledge gap in understanding varied components of modern information storage infrastructure.
