Synopsis

Cloud computing has totally changed the way applications are hosted and accessed by businesses worldwide. There are some key aspects to the way cloud computing has changed the business computing landscape and as project managers, we need to know what that means for our roles.

By shifting onsite computing infrastructure to a remote location, the way project teams work together to your client’s expectations, the project and business dynamics have completely changed.

Due to the Cloud technologies, the size of local project teams is greatly reduced and the skillsets of those who need to stay onsite have changed.

And, because applications sitting in the cloud are maintained by a vendor, the processes related to developing, managing and setting up the applications have also changed, so have the management of project tasks.

This class helps project stakeholders to: 
  • Define the new role of the project manager
  • Explore the project team structure arising from having systems hosted in the cloud 
  • Explore how to project plan based on the new digital economy
  • Maximize project outcomes from cloud related tools or technologies
  • Minimize investment from effective use of cloud resources
  • Manage this kind of project differently, e.g. lifecycle, project team, etc.
Target audiences 
  • People who want to have basic information about the Cloud and its impact on new digital projects
  • People who want to create new ideas or opportunities arising from the Cloud
  • Project Managers who wish to understand how their roles needs to be redefined in light of Cloud technologies
