Cloud/Devops: How the ITSM professionals can be reused ?

Cloud/DevOps: Rebuild ITSM for Cloud/DevOps:

The Traditional ITSM professionals do not have option, except converting into Cloud/DevOps roles with the relevant tools. How this methodology works in a project level from an individual, what skills one need to be groomed: Watch the video and its description. This kind of practices a COE need to follow if the IT company has the financial capability to run the COE building at this stage instead of loosing the knowledgeable guys. Or the individuals need to open their eyes to switch their career by taking experts one on one coaching.

Rebuild Your IT career from ITSM to Infra and DevOps building with traditional exp.
I have not included the real ITSM roles. Those also can utilize into the conversion. Case to case it can be discussed. Each Organization has their own title and using them for ITSM delivery also. These role guys can work easily for implementing the IT governance in Cloud/DevOps comparatively with other roles.
This is the Stage1 Course Highlight. You will be coached for the concepts of JSON/YAML scripts towards writing the AWS Cloud service components creation. Your personal practice efforts are mandated here.
A detailed Stage2 course discussion video is there in one of the blogs. Follow the below link:
Your effort in practicing tools is required here.

Also be aware on the below points [Published in a blog also] :

I feel; For every DevOps Professional learning Infra building activity is mandatory. See the issues, what you are facing within them. Atleast one of them you are facing from your end as mentioned in the below slide/video. Then there is a gap in your implementation practice with lack of learning in a right method with best practices. So think on your actions after the below videos watching!

What IT roles can vanish with Cloud transition ? 

If you are in the below roles, in the current recession you will be targeted for pinkslip among the IT professionals as 1st exit group. What you need to do on your career replan. Please see/follow the blog/videos with patience. 

As per my observation and practice with the trending technology [Cloud], all the Cloud services vendors have inbuilt serverless computing for many services. The following roles are going to be vanished or reskilled. But if they are kept under recession staff cut, these professionals need to take care of their career.

1. DBA:–>The DBA tasks are embedded as part of these services. So the DBAs used to sit hours together in the past to perform many mundane tasks. Now these all are automated.

2. Similarly, many other tasks are related to infra roles; Network admin/Sys-Admin are also automated through Cloud services.

3. As a consolidation all these 3 roles are clubbed into one role of Cloud Engineer. This role’s major task is to automate all the Cloud setup related activities under IAC[Infrastructure As Code]. In future only the IAC will sustain to save the cost to IT by automating the cloud setup creation activity.

4. If any professional need to compete with this role means; they need to understand the Infra needs and the past roles tasks in depth. Along with the multiple Infra related architecture scenarios, with in-depth knowledge on Cloud technology. Then only they can analyze the IAC requirements clearly to write the code and test it. This is the domain analysis and design activity they need to consider apart from the Cloud technology learning.

5. We can also see the Storage engineer role. All the Cloud vendors have the Cloud Storage services. With them mundane tasks creation/maintenance is vanished. Hence this role also will not exist.


The below video has the discussion on: A) What IT Roles can vanish after migrating to Cloud? B) How the roles/tasks are being transformed to Cloud through serverless computing technology ? C) Why anybody can learn and do the past Infra roles with Cloud ? D) What all they need to learn ? E) How the organizations can demand an employee to convert into modern technology before taking a decision for a pink slip serving ?
Finally, what are the following roles and their tasks:
Traditional Infrastructure building roles:
1.Network Admin/Engineer
2.System Administrator
3.Database Administrator
4. Deployment Engineer

5. Storage Engineer — There is a separate video done for this role education:

Technical Roles:
2.Test Engineer/Analyst

F) Among the above which role can pickup faster the Cloud/DevOps Automation technology ?
G) Then How these roles can perform in Cloud  with faster deployment ?
H) Why and how the manpower reduction happen after Cloud implementation ?

I) Why do you need to learn from the experienced IT mentors to transform into modern technology ?

K) Some people say, they can learn by self. How much they can learn and cope-up with the current market needs on various technologies to settle in modern technology ? [refer to point#5 in this blog].

L) Why do you need to spend/invest  more money to re-settle in the modern technology ?

Note: Along with this video, there are multiple blogs I have published with Videos links to make awareness to the IT Professionals. You see those blogs from this site itself.

In the current IT World Cloud computing became regular practice for any IT Professional. Any cloud services we use, we need to know the current/traditional infrastructure setup. But every IT professional may not have that background/knowledge to understand. Because in this industry each of us played  different roles.

The Infra activities handled IT Professional only will come to know this knowledge and will have experience. But the industry needs every IT employee need to know this knowledge apart from the Cloud service provider [Ex: AWS, Azure, GC, etc..] products operations. [Eventhough, if you are a certified Solutions architect with that Cloud service provider.]

Then only whoever the professionals are certified they will be able to use these products/services and implement them under cloud setup. Hence the Infra domain knowledge or experience is mandated for every IT professional who is working for Cloud services or in that infra setup. I have been hearing during Cloud professionals recruitment the interviewers are keeping some questions on this area also. If one understand the Network domain setup then only they will be able to design the Cloud architecture. Hence more employers are worried to have this domain knowledge with the Certified and recruited Cloud professionals.

I have started a Cloud Practices group to educate/share the IT professionals with this domain knowledge. The below link can be used to join/apply:


AWS: POC-How to Build WordPress web site in AWS Cloud/Network ?

Most of the Blogs on websites are operated by WordPress[WP] software which is developed in PHP. Even my site [] is from this software. To setup the WP, there are tier based architecture/setup required. For PHP related software we can have a 2-tier architecture setup.

For detailed analysis and the required AWS components for setting up W, below blog you can visit/follow blog:

In this demo video the WP site building project was discussed with different design steps towards AWS components and it was demonstrated well by one of our [experienced IT Professional] students well.

These are weekly assignments they get and they need to prove by themselves with a demo in a team; like live environment how it happens in a typical project team. By attending this activity delivery on weekly basis, one will not get any fear/scareness on doing the live infra tasks. They will be habituated with the project activities when they join in real job. And they will be productive resources from day one onwards. These are the major benefits from my course.

AWS: POC-How to do VPC Peering with 2 VPCs ?

When we have two networks in traditional methods, we used to do internal networking within the premises. And used those servers for Software APIs. Also the Sysadmin/DBAs/Network Admin role people used to manage them well. But in Cloud how to implement this kind of setup ?

In this POC project, it is well proven how we can create such kind of environment by using 2 VPCs and their peering with deeper analysis and the design steps of different services. And how the private subnet related Linux and Windows EC2s can be accessed by using NAT and Jump Servers?. And how to operate another VPC EC2 from one VPC EC2 ? Just watch this design steps analysis video from the below link:

In the below video a POC analysis is discussed with an Experienced Cloud/DevOps professional.

Do you want to become Cloud cum DevOps Architect in one go ?

How to become a Cloud cum DevOps Architect role, the IT industry demanding role to save costing ?

Many business based companies they might have the employee size from 50-40% only under the current global situation to save costing. They can attempt the first staff/contractor cut on IT professionals only to save costing. Globally, if we see from May to July 2020, crores [millions] of IT Professionals might come out by loosing the jobs.

What the IT Cos might look in In such case and how long an IT professional will be job less. I can say till he/she meets the technical requirement of a company in the global market to handle end to end. The companies would prefer to have multi Cloud skills to handle end to end engagement. They would like to follow a different strategy to work on cost efficient plans. They prefer the Cloud professional to plan everything and can execute the planned activities to implement by self including the Infra and DevOps automation. This is required for every IT Professionals; [it does’nt matter in what role they are; developer/tester/BA, etc..] to be aware of on their technical environments and do by self from end to end IT solutions.

But convincing/updates/approvals need to happen from the middle management only. In such case each individual need to assess at what level they are and how to fish the right job for them after few months. And in the meanwhile what skill gaps need to be upgraded to work as an individuals with the above mentioned automation areas by getting the massive infra/DevOps practices knowledge. For further the details see the below content which can help on your career rebuild plan to restart your second innings through this massive recession.

If you are more than 5 years Infra role experienced IT working Professional [from any country], you can become Cloud cum DevOps Architect by learning through experts coaching with live implementable activities.
There will be market crunch for this combinational skills and dryness happens very soon as per the IT research articles.

Build Cloud architects-FB promotion

Why the DevOps practice team is required to involve in Infra cloud planning?

I was talking to some clients recently on the importance of Cloud migration activities planning. I have come with some guidelines for them as part of my engagement. Some of my guidelines given to them, I would like to share as below.

When the DevOps practice team need to do the infra setup  for a cloud migration they also need to participate on the identification of Infra activities and the specifications. Which is very essential.

This need to be done as initial step with any Cloud services migration.

As per my opinion we can work with any cloud services like; AWS/AZURE/Google Cloud, etc., by having the above activity as mandatory.

The attached blog/Video contains the same discussion with the details of the steps required to setup a Virtual Private Cloud. The VPC nomenclature we might have seen with AWS. But similar setup or name cane be there with other Cloud service providers also.

Once this VPC is created the systems are going to be hosted on Cloud.

The Ops team’s responsibility is; to make sure the Cloud migration is correctly and completely done for all the live setup.

At the same time they also need to conduct a pilot testing activity successfully which is mandated as per the Agile Projects management [Agile PM] standards before they announce go live.

They also need to do a parallel run along with the past production setup with a new cloud setup for few weeks.

Below URL contains the initial planning discussion as mentioned:
