Cloud Computing

As we progress at a rapid pace into the fourth industrial revolution, it has become increasingly critical to understand how to make use of the vast computing resources available on the Cloud to adapt to changing business needs. The days of creating and servicing internal Information Technology infrastructures are rapidly fading in the wake of Virtual Computer infrastructures to make IT environments more flexible, scalable and affordable. What is Cloud Computing? “The practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.”

This course on Virtual Computing will equip you with not only the knowledge to understand the most fundamental Cloud computing concepts, but also provide a physical practical exposure to configure a variety of Virtual Computing technologies such as Oracle VirtualBox, VMware Workstation, Microsoft Hyper-V and more. As a cloud computing consultant you can offer your services to a company, with the unique selling point that “a high-performing private cloud can help cut up to 60% of operational expenses”.

Boston prepares people, whether new to the workplace or employed in an industry, to offer services in Cloud Computing and its configuration, set-up, and networking, to any large or small to medium enterprise.

Dr Linda Meyer on how automation and AI continue to impact business and employment

Although the banking sector strike was halted by the courts last week, experts say it highlighted how automation and artificial intelligence continue to impact business and employment.

The World Economic Forum estimates digitisation could displace 75 million jobs by 2022 as companies will restructure labour and use machines more. This is already putting pressure on professionals to advance their skills.


To discuss this further is Dr. Linda Meyer, Dean at Boston City Campus & Business School. Check out the full video here.
