As enterprises look to accelerate cloud adoption, it is critical to not only upskill your technical talent, but to focus on skilling your non-technical teams too. Investing in your collective workforce’s cloud proficiency helps ensure you fully embrace everyone’s potential, and make the most of your cloud investment.
According to research shared in a recent IDC paper1, comprehensively trained organizations saw a bigger impact vs. narrowly trained organizations, with 133% greater improvement in employee retention, a 47% reduction in business risk and a 22% increase in innovation.
This is where Cloud Digital Leader training and certification comes in. Most cloud training and certification is geared toward technical cloud practitioners, leaving non-technical (tech-adjacent) teams with little understanding of cloud technologies. Cloud Digital Leader bridges this gap, providing easy-to-understand training that enables everyone to understand the capabilities of cloud so that they can contribute to digital transformation in their organizations.
In a recent fireside chat with Google Cloud Partner Kyndryl, who have achieved over 1,000 Cloud Digital Leader certifications across their organization, they shared how the Cloud Digital Leader training and certification has led to significant time reduction within their pre-sales cycle:
“Our sales teams who work with customers and learn about their challenges were able to apply the know-how from their Cloud Digital Leader education and certification. They can now guide the technical solution teams in the right direction, without having to pull them into the discovery phases of their customer interactions. As a result, we operated more quickly and efficiently, as the sales teams were able to speak to the Google Cloud solutions very early on in the sales cycle. This accelerated the sales process, as the sales teams were therefore more confident in their Google Cloud knowledge, saving time and money for us, and the customer.” — Christoph Schwaiger, Google Cloud Business Development Executive, Global Strategic Alliances, Kyndryl.
