IC3, the First Multi Cloud Training Conference, Helps Companies Shift from On-Premise to Cloud

The IT Cloud Computing Conference (IC3) – the first multi cloud training conference – announced the opening of registration and keynote commitments from Amazon Web Services and ActiveState. IC3, October 27-28 in San Francisco, is the first enterprise cloud training conference with technical content, certification prep and hands-on labs for the leading cloud platforms. IC3 gives IT managers everything they need to evaluate platforms, make a plan and develop a proof of concept in the cloud.

IC3 announced keynote speakers Matt Wood, Amazon Web Services General Manager of Data Science and Bernard Golden, ActiveState Vice President, Strategy and cloud advisor at CIO Magazine. Online Registration is open at www.icee3.com with discounts available for early registrants.

“IC3 is a watershed event in cloud computing,” said ActiveState’s Bernard Golden. “IT managers are moving their infrastructure and apps to the cloud, and IC3 is the place for them to get grounded on what’s possible and how to make it happen. IC3 trains System Administrators to become Cloud Administrators.”

IC3 trains enterprise operations personnel to shift from on-premise infrastructure to public cloud infrastructure. Analyst firm IDC says cloud computing is the fastest and largest technology shift in the history of IT. According to the US Department of Commerce, IT infrastructure components including servers, storage, networking gear and cooling equipment represent more than $400 billion. The shift to the cloud will impact more than one million administrators, database administrators and IT solutions architects who must adjust to the requirements for cloud computing. IC3 helps IT professionals upgrade their skills to fill the nearly 14 million new jobs created by the cloud computing industry.

“As more IT workloads move to the AWS Cloud, the demand for skilled and qualified professionals to design, develop, and implement AWS solutions increases,” said Matt Wood, General Manager, Data Science, Amazon Web Services, Inc. and an IC3 keynote speaker. “With this shift, individuals are also looking to acquire cloud-based IT skills and certifications to validate their expertise to foster continued career growth.”
