Overview

Governance of assets, whether cloud based or on-premise is a fundamental task of any IT department. Governance ensures that the IT assets are being used for intended purposes and maintained to provide the highest efficiencies.

 In this course, numerous models and framework components are explored to establish highly structured models for identifying and associating formal cloud governance precepts and processes to common cloud project stages.


Intended for

IT Professionals, Cloud Architects, Technical Architects, Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Infrastructure Architects, IT Managers, Programme Managers, anyone that is tasked with building and running cloud capability.
