Presentation Title and Goals
Cloud Computing 101: for Project Managers
Goals (By the end of the presentation, the attendees will be able to):
If you’re a Project Manager, you’re increasingly likely to encounter situations in which cloud computing will have an impact on your project – whether you want it to or not! Often, you may have no choice – especially if a boss, customer or sponsor states, “You will use cloud computing in this project!” If you ask why, chances are the answer will be, “Because everyone else is using them!” As a PM, you need to be able to make sure that everyone involved with your project understands which of the three basic types of clouds are appropriate for that project. Each type of cloud has specific capabilities and limitations. Some come with different service models, as well as different “deployment models,” each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
In this presentation helps you cut through the jargon and hype surrounding clouds and cloud-based services. It will enable you to distinguish between the different types of clouds, service models, deployment models, and their relative strengths and limitations.
It will help you:
This presentation also maps thecontents of key chapters to the process groups and knowledge areas in the PMBOK® Guide, allowing you to easily apply the accepted standards of project management to cloud computing. You don’t need to be a “techie” to benefit from this presentation.
Hopefully, this presentation will help dispel some of the mystery and hype associated with cloud computing, and bring about that vital “Aha!” moment as you discover how to make the cloud work for your project.
