1. Cloud Defects:How the Cloud Professionals can Create the costly defects and the reasons ?

With reference to the booming Cloud Market [refer to some of my videos/blogs] and the Conversions to Cloud by different business organizations; Globally millions of IT professionals were mandated to learn the Cloud technologies to sustain their jobs in IT.

When we talk about these converted IT Professionals, they were forced to move into Cloud due to the sustainability of their job.

At the same time their employers are also enforced by their management to accelerate the cost savings for IT infra.

So how they do the planning for Cloud ?

On top there can be a CTO/CIO plans it to convert into Cloud. And they have the complete knowledge of the infrastructure with reference to their technology being used for business systems.

There will be Cloud Architects, they are responsible to create the Cloud implementation design.

Then the plan and the design is released to the Cloud engineers by allocating the tasks.

In between due to lack of [turn around] time, the Cloud engineers are pressured to create the environments. Here everybody can find one point, the management did not plan the knowledge transfer perfectly to the low level people. Then they can create many costly defects as per their knowledge and experience. So there is no ‘uniformity was followed’ in this case. It need not be a cost effective solution the Cloud Architects or Cloud Engineers have done. And there was no review also done. Once the monthly Cloud bill is arrived they will realize on it. Then they can realize the costly burning/bill happened by comparing to their planned cost saving on Infra. So this way they are enforced to track the resources who created these costly defects.

The following picture has got this kind of analysis. And what are the basic reasons the Architects and Engineers are not able to understand the domain conversion scenarios, when the management plans and release it for implementation.

Here we need to remember, every IT Professional need to realize that one fine day the current size of the resources will not be there in any project due to Cloud and the automation implementation is happening.

So the self matured professional need to realize where they are lacking and step down to learn those from experts, on war footing basis to prove and safeguard their jobs in IT.

If you want to learn the details, I have discussed in the below video with the relevant coaching on AWS-SAA course also.

Note:
I hope you have seen my AWS Coaching specimen on the URL: https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/

Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of it on the candidate what he/she has ?

In my coaching I concentrate to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience by the participant rather than pushing the course to them. Verify the videos.

Contact for your real Cloud experiences learning and gaining with me and crack the interviews to get offers in AWS Roles globally or even you can transition to the role in the same company after facing the client interview.
Please connect me on FB and have a discussion on your background and the needs/goals. I am looking for the serious learners.

!!For Working IT Infra Professionals only!! For learning AWS.

<==== Before Click … Please Read….this======>
 
Come to a call to know our new scheme “Pay As You Learn”, monthly basis. The total AWS Course it takes around 5 months as part time basis with weekly one on one class hours with POCs to learn AWS through some chapters.
 
Please note each of our catching capability varies. This effort need to be understood by the individuals before talking on your interest/effort/affordability.
This is similar to a performance activity how the RM measures to each of us in a project.
 
Please note each aspired Cloud architect need to spend 200+ hrs before starting their role.
 
Hence in one month or few hours if somebody says you will be come a Solution Architect, they are bluffing you.
You need to learn and do practice on AWS services extensively like an implementable solution. This way our course builds you into new technology era.
 
========================================>
 

Many companies they do skill test by giving a scenario to develop through AWS Console or CLI. This way they can filter your profile to find its authenticity “actual” or “fake”. You all know in the global IT Market lot of fake profiles are floating around. So the recruiters are finding challenges to filter them. By attending skill test you will be proved you are the original professional infront of the fake profiles.

But if you want to learn this new technology, you were not habituated   like developers [as they keep updating their knowledge, for their bread and butter by spending weekly some hours] to accelerate the skills in new technology implementation. 

So, what you need to do ?

You need an individual coaching to speed up this learning activity.

It should not be in group or online training!! 

Read the below contents from the picture for details, what way I can help/support you.

You can choose the course ‘A’ or ‘B’. Then if you want to have POCs development knowledge, after completion of “B”, you can join.

In the Bottom the Courses TOC discussion videos are given for your perusal.

For Freshers “Course-A” is suitable.

For IT Corporates:How to save your IT traditional Infra work force to accelerate ROI ?

For Corporate Training division/unit only [not to their vendors] please!

Folks Greetings!

How to Convert your existing infra teams into AWS with POCs easily to prove in client interviews through seasoned mentors?

In the Current IT Trend, new technologies are getting transformed with cheaper cost in view of man power, operations and infra. In such case some companies might feel to serve pink slips to the traditional employees. But when you recruit new staff how much you spend on them ? And if you coach the existing staff to transform into new era, what will be the cost and ROI ? I do this kind of resources transformation activities on my own by coaching the experienced IT Professionals on new technology like; AWS Cloud, etc. For example, you can see my blog/coaching videos on my coaching for 10-15+ yrs global IT Folks:

https://vskumar.blog/2019/03/21/learn-aws-with-pocs-easily-to-prove-in-interviews/

If any corporate is serious in looking to sustain their traditional staff and reuse them efficiently/effectively, I will be there behind them to support till they transform into their client requirement/project for billability. Looking forward for your cost savings exercise response.

Please Note:

There is a difference between training and coaching or building teams for projects. For your existing IT Professionals you need to give coaching [through seasoned professionals] not the training. Then they will be productive.
