Stay competitive. Cloud integration and this flexible training approach

Share this post:

C-suite executives are ready to double-down on cloud computing, according to this recent IBM Institute for Business Value blog. More than twice as many CIOs expect to invest significantly in hybrid cloud in the next two to three years as the number who said they’ve made that decision to date. Interest in cloud – and hybrid cloud in particular – is clearly not waning; its role as a source of strategic competitiveness is instead accelerating.

Accelerating the rollout of your cloud initiatives requires expertise. Modernizing your approach to integration means rethinking people, processes, technology and architecture. You need agile integration. And you need a flexible training approach that covers IBM Cloud solutions, and gives you the ability to take the training throughout the year as needed.

Consider the IBM Digital Learning Subscription (DLS).
