AWS: What is AWS IAM Role and how it works ?

When we setup the new projects/functional groups In traditional infra we used to follow a heirarchy of roles as per the organization. When the IT systems access is required the sysadmin/infra team used to follow the similar setup.

When we come to AWS Cloud setup, we need to follow the similar setup, which is called Identity Access Management [IAM].

The following video has the detailed discussion on IAM usage and its function.

https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/831779460496153/

To avail this coaching:

A) you should be certified and has been working on AWS solutions atleast for 2 years.

B) You should have PM experience also.

Note: You might have achieved number of AWS certifications. But with that knowledge, globally many people are not able to perform the Cloud Architect roles with the customers due to lack of infra knowledge/process/methodology. And within 3 months they are being served pink slips. So, you need to look around what you need to learn further in this competency acceleration world to become strong Cloud Architect. Remember; nobody can guide you in your job to sustain there during its execution. You need to look for alternate plans to upgrade the knowledge by special coaching. Then only you can quote for higher billing as an independent Cloud Architect solutions consultant. Hope this gives clarity for your strategic planning.
