Training in Multiple Cloud Technologies [Case Study]
How flexible training made hundreds of personnel more cloud-ready
A leading financial services company wanted to give its retail banking operation more of the benefits and cost savings that come with doing business in the cloud. Like many organizations in financial services, this enterprise had initially been cautious in its embrace of the cloud, but when the business case for the cloud became indisputable, the company had to move quickly to catch up to the best available technology — pushing them to commit to executing two major initiatives in a very short time frame.
The bank recognized the need to migrate from a large enterprise-class platform-as-a-service to a Kubernetes-based solution. At the same time as this migration, the organization was also in the process of moving from an internal cloud to the public cloud. With these two major transitions, hundreds of developers, managers and administrators suddenly needed improved expertise in cloud and microservices.
