IIHT Ltd, a technology-training organisation, along with Microsoft, has announced the launch of a certified cloud expert programme at Kochi Infopark.

Mr Keshava Raju, CEO, IIHT, told reporters here that the programme would help IT professionals and aspirants acquire the necessary skills to develop into cloud professionals by acquiring expertise in multivendor virtualisation solutions, IT infrastructure monitoring and management, along with private cloud designing and deployment skills.

He pointed out that the international research firm, IDC, estimates that cloud computing will generate 14 million new jobs worldwide by 2015. With India getting nearly 20 lakh cloud computing jobs according to the findings of this new study commissioned by Microsoft, the launch of this program will benefit IT aspirants all.

The market for public cloud infrastructure, platforms and applications is growing far more quickly than any other type of IT spending, he added.

IIHT will expand the programme to five more cities in the State in the next two years. To create awareness on cloud computing, the company is also organising an international workshop here on Saturday jointly with Microsoft. Mr Phani Kondepudi, Director, Academic Programmes, Microsoft, will inaugurate the workshop.
