Program Description


Cloud computing involves the use of computing resources such as but not limited to applications, storage, database, and computer power in an on-demand, yet off premises fashion. The technologies utilized to accomplish this allow elements of an IT infrastructure to be housed in remote locations or data warehouses without direct active management of the entity utilizing it. Cloud computing allows for greater flexibility and nearly instant scalability. Analysis of industry trends reveals a shift to these on-demand methods of technological operation across a plethora of fields including aerospace, shipping and transportation, healthcare, manufacturing, and education. As a community college, we sit at the forefront of the movement to provide a skilled workforce to fill labor shortages in this space which are expected to increase exponentially in the coming years. Today, cloud computing is a top skill that employers of IT teams require. Forbes magazine stated in 2018 there were over 50,000 unfilled cloud computing positions available across the United States and 100,000 worldwide. The demand is expected to increase exponentially, requiring not only community colleges to set the pace for this training, but also imploring high schools and universities to participate in the creation and sustainment of this skilled workforce pipeline.
