Course Description

Overview

This Professional Cloud Solution Architect Certificate Program is designed to introduce students to the major issues of modern cloud-enabled systems and services and their impact on business models, software, hardware and devices. Cloud computing continues to be built on the foundations of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).

Solution architects need to consider how existing systems and new solution practices driven by on-demand cloud computing are impacting on consumers, provider private- and public-enabled systems and the integrated hybrid categories of IT and business that are now part of today’s technology landscape.

This course looks at the following emerging new trends and leading architecture solutions:
  • Tablets and other smart devices and platforms and their important role today in modern internet- based service ecosystems.
  • The development of private cloud solutions and hybrid cloud solutions that are complementary and alternative to public clouds and their role in business and IT portfolio management and service hosting and delivery models.
  • How social enterprise and business processes are converting into new online end user experience systems, mash-ups and services.
  • Cloud computing is also creating new development, test and delivery models that are spreading across on-premise and off-premise hosting and deployment channel models.
