Abstract of Topic:  Cloud offers the biggest opportunity since the invention of the PC to truly transform the way we achieve value for our business. We’re at a stage where we all acknowledge that our people need new skills to leverage this technology, but we still approach it in the same ‘traditional’ way that we always have. In this session, hear Brian Kozan, Global Head of Delivery for the AWS Skills Guild, speak about how AWS has learned to approach the cloud skills gap for accelerated success and cloud adoption. Through successful engagements with some of the largest enterprises around the world, we have begun to understand that training your people how to use the technology isn’t enough – an investment in culture, and the ways that we measure success need also be considered. Brian will share some best practices and the ‘secret sauce’ behind effective digital and cloud transformations.
