The program, created by ComputeNext’s director of channel development Dan Moore, provides marketplace-specific video tutorials necessary for channel professionals as well as general cloud certification provided by partner CompTIA, which will be free of charge. The certifications include certificates for data recovery, IT security and unified communications as well as executive certificates in both cloud computing in beginner and advanced levels.
ComputeBext claims the program “covers basic and advanced rationales for the cloud computing thought process, as well as hands-on tutorial training on the ComputeNext Marketplace itself.” The program was designed to help meet the difficulties of keeping revenues up while transitioning customers from traditional, physical IT to newer cloud services.
Moore also said there is “a huge need for education and training resources that can better equip these organizations to lead cloud conversations, understand the larger market dynamics of cloud computing, and ultimately exude a sense of trustworthiness to their clients. Unfortunately, the plethora of platform & technology vendors respective to cloud services coupled with the barrage of marketing information about ‘going to the cloud’ can be very daunting and confusing as to what your first steps should be.”
The company’s Marketplace is a platform that allows users to edit and manage cloud services from a multitude cloud hosting providers around the world.
