The footprint of Cloud Computing is growing and more organizations are deciding where and how to position the Cloud in their IT strategy. The effects of adopting Cloud reach beyond the IT department and can strongly influence sales, marketing, finance, product and business development professionals.

Examples of changes to understand are the different Cloud concepts (public, private, hybrid, multi), the difference between providers such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure, the financial shift from CAPEX to OPEX, funding programs, compliance and regulations and the most common business drivers, benefits and risks of Cloud Computing.
