Cognixia, a Global Digital Talent Development Company specializing in Data, Cloud, and Engineering, today announced the expansion of its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver AWS Training across the US. Cognixia has joined the AWS Training Partner Program, which enables AWS Authorized Instructors to deliver training developed by AWS around the world, to bolster cloud skills at all levels, and prepare the future digital workforce.
Migration to the cloud has become mainstream for all businesses and has accelerated during the pandemic. Gartner has predicted worldwide public cloud spend to grow by 18% in 2021, with 70% of organizations currently using cloud poised to increase cloud spending in the wake of COVID-19. However, many organizations are left scrambling to build teams with cloud competencies. The shortage of talent in this area is proving to be a pain point for many IT executives and senior leaders.
