Enterprises are moving to cloud computing at an accelerated pace, estimating that 85% of enterprises will adopt a cloud first principle by 2025 (Gartner®, Gartner says Cloud will be the Centerpiece of the New Digital Experience, Laurence Goasduff, November 10, 2021). There are countless reasons why enterprises are moving to the cloud - from reduced IT costs and increased scalability, to improved security and efficiency. However this rapid change has presented a challenge - how will organizations build the skills they need to accelerate cloud adoption within their organization? The answer is comprehensive training. 

We commissioned IDC in March 2022 , an independent market intelligence firm, to write a white paper that studied the impact of comprehensive training and certification on cloud adoption. When organizations are trained they see:

  1. Significantly greater improvement in top business priorities - 133% greater improvement on employee retention and 56% greater improvement in customer experience scores

  2. Accelerated cloud adoption, reduced time to value, and greater ROI - trained organizations are 10X more likely to implement cloud in 2 years

  3. Greater performance improvements - in areas like leveraging data analytics, protecting data, and jumpstarting innovation

IDC White Paper, sponsored by Google Cloud Learning: "To Maximize Your Cloud Benefits, Maximize Training" - Doc #US48867222, March 2022
