10 December, 2009

Mumbai: Aptech Limited, a global leader in learning solutions, today announced the launch of an exclusive program in Cloud Computing.

The program has been designed by Vijay Mukhi, Aptech’s Cloud Evangelist and the pioneer of IT education in India. The program will be rolled out in 35 countries and in phases, starting with India, Vietnam and Malaysia. The duration of the course is 40 hours, split into three levels: Level 100 (4 hours), Level 200 (12 hours) and Level 300 (24 hours).

Ninad Karpe, CEO & MD of Aptech Limited, said, “Cloud Computing is now a critical aspect of IT and many companies are looking at adopting cloud services. The trends suggest that it is obligatory for aspirants and existing IT professionals to understand this change. Our course in Cloud Computing will help to skill as well as re-skill the IT industry both within and outside India.”

Shares Vijay Mukhi, Cloud Evangelist, Aptech Limited: “Since there are different cloud models across the globe and a lack of common standards, we believe that there should be a neutral course that covers all cloud computing technologies. We will provide a homogenous solution to aspirants so that they are well-versed with the latest technologies that exist. I am sure this course will provide students a power-packed combination which will enhance their employability manifold, opening up a world of opportunities for them in this sphere.”

Companies like IBM, Microsoft and Amazon are already working in the cloud space. Also, consumers and smaller companies are definitely going to adopt cloud services in the near future. Therefore, for IT executives, the sooner they tune into how people in their enterprise are playing with the cloud, the better it would be.

Cloud computing will enable enterprises to achieve economies of scale and agility in delivering new solutions. IDC expects spending on IT cloud services to grow almost three-fold, reaching USD 42 billion by 2012. This has automatically generated demand for efficient cloud architects and Aptech Limited, as a leading IT training institute, is responding to this demand.
