As more and more companies wish to take advantage of what cloud computing, data analytics and machine learning can do for their businesses, the gap between the knowledge needed to move to the cloud and the demand for such skills has grown enormously. Lack of expertise and cloud skills is often cited as the top challenge for companies wishing to migrate their business to the cloud.
To address this need, we’re collaborating with Coursera, a leading online education platform, to launch a series of on-demand Google Cloud Platform training offerings. Developed and taught by Google experts, these courses range in skills levels from beginner to advanced and include topics like cloud fundamentals, operations, security, data analytics and machine learning. Now with just a few clicks anyone in the world can get trained on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
This collaboration is part of our ongoing effort, including our recent acquisition of training platform Qwiklabs, to provide learning experiences to customers in the ways that work best for them, be that the classroom, on-demand or a blended version of the two. In addition to Coursera, we are also working with a global network of instructor-led classroom training providers.
