Updating an IT Professional{4}


by Miguel V
With technology trends like cloud computing, big data and converged infrastructures “significantly changing the way enterprise IT professionals run their data centers” Cisco Systems is teaming up with EMC and VMware to provide IT professionals training “in a wide range of areas impacting the data center, from networking and cloud computing to storage and virtualization.” Cisco goals are to give IT administrators the required training to address technology trend issues. With this program Cisco and its partners are leading the way in transforming skills for the next generation of IT professionals . With cloud computing changing the way information and data  is being sent from one server to the next “IT organizations must cultivate new cloud architecture skills, understand how to use big data and maintain deep domain expertise with a renewed understanding of virtualization and technology convergence.” Through its training courses Cisco plans on giving technical “professionals the skills to build and run these evolving data centers” by providing ” a prescriptive and simple way to acquire the right skills at the right time.
This article has a couple of topics that relate to what we discussed about in class when dealing with data modeling and the importance of knowing good naming techniques that everyone can understand. Personally I like that Cisco Systems is stepping up and providing IT professionals that don’t want to go back to college a simple course that is design to update them on the new technology and practices of an IT professional in a simple and easy to understand way.
