Transcript: ‘Would you marry your cloud tech vendor?’

Sudhakar: The biggest advantage with vendor neutral certification is it gives you a complete balanced approach and a knowledge base of all the aspects of cloud computing as well as virtualization. Including the advantages and limitations of these technologies.

Peter: We do mention a lot of technology. In the course but we’re not recommending any specific vendor.
The benefits of having vendor neutral cloud training come in two ways. One of the ways is for the individual. It means that their skills won’t become obsolete as vendors come and go.
In the technology associate course we have gone to a significant amount of trouble to make sure that those skills are universal for running IT and are not very specific to a vendor.
So that’s like job security for individuals. For their employers vendor neutral cloud training means that their staff will be able to support a wider choice of solutions. It has a bigger perspective and that reduces vendor lock-in. Vendor neutral means less vendor lock-in.

If you’re out of cloud, you’re out of work. Really.”
