Professional Cloud Service Manager

In an increasingly interconnected and complex IT environment, IT management is under pressure to deliver more agile IT services and adapt to change. Organizations are adopting strategies that include cloud computing in order to meet these challenges and offer reliable, flexible and scalable services. Service management professionals are challenged to help organizations optimally ensure measurable service delivery and management in cloud environments. The Professional Cloud Service Manager (PCSM) certification enables participants to design and deliver cloud services. The certification provides a hands-on, practical approach to understanding how cloud computing and cloud-based services impact operations, and how to adapt existing processes to deliver better services. The PCSM takes these factors and ITIL® best practices into account to bridge service management gaps in cloud adoption.

This certification can be taken by:

  • IT Managers and CIOs
  • Service Managers (with or without an ITIL background)
  • Service Management Professionals
  • Cloud Strategy and Management Consultants

There are no prerequisites. It is recommended that participants have achieved the Cloud Technology Associate certification (or its equivalent) and that participants are conversant in cloud concepts and vocabulary. Participants further benefit from a strong background in IT service management, who have completed one or more ITIL certifications or who have practical experience in IT service management best-practices.

Organisational Benefits:

  • The premise of Cloud Computing allows services to be provided with greater economies of scale, quicker, faster and cheaper and without the need for a service provider to own the entire IT infrastructure.

A pay-per-use model can, in certain circumstances, lower the full cost of service delivery without full ownership of back-end IT infrastructure.
