Google Training and Certifications 

“Around the world, organizations across multiple industries are in the midst of digitally transforming their businesses. For many, the Covid-19 pandemic only accelerated things.”

The technological transformation impacted various parts of our lives; the way we work and live and allow for unprecedented levels of virtual collaboration at a global scale, and the centre of all the paradigm shifts sits cloud technology.

The major contributing factor to these changes will be people with the skills required to implement and manage large scale cloud deployments, especially in areas like artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, application development, security and cloud architecture.

‘More than 90% of IT leaders say that they’re looking to grow their cloud environments in the next several years, yet more than 80% of those same leaders identified a lack of skills and knowledge within their employees as a barrier to this growth.”

Through Trainocate Malaysia’s Google Cloud Platform training and certification courses, we aim to remove both the barrier to growth and entry that occur when transitioning and adopting new technology within your organization.
