Train your engineering workforce for using Cloud services

Everybody is talking about Cloud. Cloud and Cloud. Major tech giants are very busy for their Cloud PaaS (Platform as a Service) services including Google, Amazon, Azure, IBM and so on. There are lots of player are playing this game to takeover cloud market share. According to Right Scale blog post about their survey,

68 percent of enterprises run less than a fifth of their application portfolios in the cloud. 55 percent of enterprises report that a significant portion of their existing application portfolios are not in cloud, but are built with cloud-friendly architectures. It’s amazing. Everybody is preparing for Cloud

So why not you. As the cloud service market will grow with competition consumer will be much benefited. It’s simple calculation. Recently I monitored AWS, Google Cloud monthly update for their Cloud service. And I realized that every month most of the cloud service provider are releasing on avg. 10-15 new products and continuously improving their existing products. That’s a very good sign that they are expecting more people to go for cloud.

As much as I read about cloud I am feeling amazing as an engineering perspective. If we go few years back, as a software engineer always it was a hassle to deploy service for public, managing theme, upgrading them, automate the workflow. But now cloud made all those things so much easier even I can save my 40-50 hours after every project my team finish and I can become a more worry-less person than ever before. At Preview Technologies HQ, we officially announced that “we are going cloud and we are preparing resources for our existing customers also to become cloud friendly”. 50% of our engineering workforce are now getting training about cloud services and we are encouraging them about the necessity of going cloud.

Our business is heavily web application development service based and most of our clients are business institutions. So it’s not easy to bring all of them on board but we are trying and after our engineering team training we are planning to run massive campaign for our business clients about cloud. We never preferred any specific cloud service provider but also we start providing our clients to chose their best cloud providers and we can work with them. Currently most of our clients can choose between Google Cloud, AWS. As we go further, this list will be extended. All software and technology companies should start train their engineering workforce to practice cloud service and if they start doing that from right now, they must be benefited in near future cause clients are also becoming more smarter than before. They want cloud. Some clients are obsessed with this word CLOUD. So if you have a business or you are a leader among your engineering team, it’s time to be trained up and getting ready for cloud.
