February Meeting | Cloud 101: An Analysis of the Business of Clouds

Cloud has been one of the most used buzz words in technology since World Wide Web. But what is cloud really? How can I make sense of the different types of cloud and know when to use them correctly in my role as a BA? Let’s have some fun and learn from an industry cloud software architect as he takes us through a Cloud 101 session and then helps set some expectations for a BA in delivering the message to the development teams.

Join us to:

  • Gain an understanding of all of the cloud basics to be able to speak fluently to clients, technology teams, management, and your curious friends/family.
  • Participate in group discussion on how the Business Analyst can translate the cloud knowledge into requirements.
  • How to work with development teams to help flush out the cloud vision into tangible products.
