What’s new 900x50px V2.pngCelfocus training to accelerate Cloud adoption

There is no question of “go/no go to Cloud" anymore, adopting cloud solutions is mandatory and it's a priority topic on organization agendas that want to continue competing in a market that is in constant evolution. It's not a surprise that most of the solutions that are now being implemented are aiming to be cloud first or cloud native. This means that gaining specialization in cloud services is nowadays a must to guarantee the success of projects and a competitive differentiator.

The challenge needs to be raised to implement multi domain applications in a multi cloud ecosystem, the complexity is increasing with trends like industry cloud platforms, blockchain, distributed cloud or edge computing. Organizations will continue to adopt cloud services and consume the native services that they provide to accelerate time to value, leveraging on composability to build differentiated digital products and services.

It's critical to work with strong cloud partnerships, prepare the workforce and even the organization culture for the market needs, the key is to continually adapt to clients’ expectations, unlocking cloud native capabilities such as Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

In a nutshell cloud computing is a game-changer for businesses, enabling organizations to be more agile, efficient, and innovative in a constantly evolving digital landscape.

How can Celfocus Training help?


Cloud technology training and, by extension, cloud skills have a compelling influence on the rate of cloud adoption. An adequate cloud training strategy can enable organizations to accelerate cloud adoption and achieve their business objectives, as well as overcome concerns related to cloud adoption.

Celfocus training offers foundational training with introductory videos and webinars to help you and your team to learn cloud fundamentals and raise cloud awareness throughout the organization.

  • Hack This: Unleashing Your Inner Hacker to Find Vulnerabilities in Our Products

As technology continues to advance, so do the threats and risks that come with it. In today's digital age, cybersecurity is of utmost importance, and companies need to take proactive measures to ensure the safety and security of their products.

The idea behind Hack This is simple: we invite our internal teams to participate in a hacking competition where they are encouraged to find weaknesses and vulnerabilities in our products. We're on the 6th Edition of this internal initiative, counting with 30 registrations for a challenge that will ended on April 5th.

The goal is not to harm or compromise the integrity of our systems, but rather to help us identify potential vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by malicious actors. Participants will be given access to our products and systems and will have the opportunity to explore and test their security features. 

The event is not just about finding vulnerabilities, it's also about fostering a culture of security and promoting collaboration among our employees. By participating in the event, employees will gain a better understanding of the importance of cybersecurity and the role they can play in keeping our products safe.
