Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing a training plan for staff and other stakeholders, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
One important piece of the cloud migration puzzle is staff training. A sudden switch …to cloud computing is not something you simply want to spring on your people and let them …fend for themselves. …To help ensure a successful migration, you need to have a plan of attack for getting …the people in your organization up to speed and ready for the switch. This should happen …during the execution phase of your migration. …Number one, communication is a key requirement when making a change of any kind in any organization.…
If you're planning on a migration to the cloud, your people need to know what's coming. …Communication also needs to come back from them, so you know who is going to require …what kind of training. At this stage, you're assessing the needs of your people with respect to training. …Information sessions and materials should be considered every step of the way. With …cloud computing a change in process and procedure at the very least is forthcoming, so you'll …need to inform your people of the new policies and procedures. …
David also presents an overview of migration and common cloud technologies as you contemplate a move to the cloud, including Google Apps, Microsoft Windows Live, and more. The final chapter outlines how to evaluate the ongoing effectiveness of the cloud for your business.
