Internet Evolution's Seven Days of Executive Education (7DEE) offers you an entirely new way to get the intelligence you need to make sound executive decisions about Internet-related IT issues – and all without having to leave the comfort of your office chair. This semester our faculty of expert tutors has prepared a curriculum to speak to the theme of "Getting Cued In to the Cloud".
Cloud computing is a powerful tool for simplifying the headaches and complexity of managing an IT infrastructure. Clouds enable enterprises to concentrate on their core businesses, while offloading the expense and work of managing hardware, networks, applications, and services. But clouds aren't magic fixes for IT problems; they're real-world tools that have their own complexity and requirements. In this 7 Days of Executive Education, you'll learn the fundamentals of infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, and software-as-a-service, as well as how to ensure uptime, connectivity, and regulatory compliance, and how to manage your relationship with a cloud vendor. Most important of all, you'll learn how to use the cloud to make your business better.
This theme will be tackled in a series of seven interactive tutorials (seven days, hence the name of the program!) where you can ask questions of the tutor, discuss knotty issues with your fellow students, and download a wealth of additional learning materials. (Don't worry if you can't attend a particular course live – seminars are also archived, and our online educational discussions take place 24 hours a day.)
As an enrolled student in 7DEE, you will earn points for the number of courses you attend, and extra credit is earned for interactivity and the ability to share information with your peers. The number of points you collect dictates both when you graduate, and also what grade you receive (see here for more details on the points system). You can track your progress in the school by clicking on your profile.
Graduation triggers all manner of good things: We send you a certificate (real, not virtual) signed by the Dean of 7DEE. We will recognize you in our Role of Honor on the Internet Evolution site, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
