Overview

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the internet. Due to relatively lower cost of IT solutions, many organizations have started to take advantage of cloud services provided by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud and Softlayer, Google Cloud Platform, Salesforce, and so on. These web service providers offer a broad range of global cloud-based IT products, including computing technologies, storage, databases, analytics, networking, mobile, developer tools, management tools, internet of things connectivity, security, and enterprise applications. These services can help organizations move faster, facilitate agile development, and better manage scalability.

Students have an opportunity to learn theoretical and practical aspects of distributed systems from both technical and business perspectives. Students will be able to identify frameworks, techniques, and existing IT solutions to manage internet services at different levels (infrastructure, platform, and software). Students in the CCA&M graduate certificate will also be able to demonstrate the ability to use APIs to integrate applications and business operations into the cloud. They can be directly employed by Web service providers or instead work as IT solutions managers in organizations that contract with web service providers.
