This expert-level course provides the knowledge and skills necessary to design cloud-based IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) solutions. Building on the skills acquired in the Virtual Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Planning and Design specialist-level course, it focuses on business, organizational, governance, technology, and service management aspects from a design-centric perspective. By utilizing lecture, discussions, case studies, design examples, and a series of interactive problem-solving labs, students will learn to design solutions which transform business operations and virtualized data centers into ITaaS environments. The course is applicable to enterprise, service provider, and existing virtualized data center operations considering ITaaS. This course uses an ‘open’ approach focusing on core concepts, principals, and technologies rather than specific products. To provide context, the course includes EMC specific examples and case studies.
