New training for c-suite builds awareness of cloud, generative AI capabilities

Recommended Posts

The cloud powers today’s most impactful business and customer experiences, and c-suite leaders increasingly want to understand what it can deliver for their organization. Regardless of your organization’s adoption of cloud technologies, executives who understand the capabilities of cloud and its impact on operations across the organization are better equipped to set the vision for their organization’s digital transformation. If you’re a c-suite, president, VP, or even a director in a non-IT role, now’s the time to build your knowledge of the capabilities of cloud, including emerging technologies like generative AI. Having a clear understanding of the “what” and “why” can be game-changing.

AWS Training and Certification and AWS Enterprise Strategists have developed a new collection of digital training to provide a high-level picture of the benefits of cloud computing. Intended for individuals in business or technology leadership roles, these short, snackable trainings featuring AWS Enterprise Strategists Jake Burns, Chris Hennessy, and Clarke Rodgers who each formerly served in a senior leadership role directing technology or financial strategy prior to AWS.

With a digital training aligned to each c-level role in the organization – CEO, CIO, CTO, etc. – you’ll explore the cloud’s capabilities and business benefits for innovation and competitive advantage with guidance specific to the role you play in the organization’s use of cloud. Also included in the collection are courses focused on topics all leaders will want to better understand: Digital Transformation and Generative AI.
