Keynote: How the Cloud is changing IT Education

Among the trends that are emerging in the global training and learning industry, the Cloud is transforming IT education deeply. The keynote will address the impacts of the cloud on traditional hard/software vendor training. Lessons learned from IBM's Cloud experience as well as from other organisations will be shared. The combination of the Cloud with other trends (social learning, analytics, mobile learning) will be in focus. The keynote will also be the opportunity to discuss the extent to which the Cloud can/is used disruptively and through which technologies.

Case Study – How ForgeRock have implemented a 100% Cloud solution

ForgeRock University came in to being when a customer had the audacity to ask for some training! We now deliver classroom, VILT and on-demand classes to enterprise customers in many locations.
Rapid growth demanded a new way of implementing a training business at scale in order to keep pace with its customers’ needs and the cloud came to the rescue.  Today, ForgeRock University is run using a 100% cloud based infrastructure responsible for every aspect of the training business.
The case study will discuss the business rationale for using the cloud, and some of the challenges and benefits from having gone down this route.  Many lessons were learnt, from which a template for cloud procurement has been developed which will be shared in this session.
