About the course

If you look up the definition for “leader”, you’ll likely find a number of relevant descriptions: a leader is someone who guides other people; someone ahead of others; and someone who influences others. All three portrayals could be applied to the person who want to become a Google Cloud Digital Leader, and the world is in great need of digital leaders today, as companies and organizations strive mightily to compete in the new global economy.

The aim of this course is to prepare you to take and pass the Google Cloud Digital Leader certification exam. But more than that, it is also designed to help you understand how you can guide others in their journey from a traditional on-premises organization to a nimble, cloud-native one that can take advantage of the increased scale and capabilities brought on by cloud computing. Along the way, we’ll discuss the challenges companies face in the modern interconnected world and how the cloud in general, and Google Cloud in particular, overcomes those challenges.

This course will familiarize you with the specific Google Cloud services and solutions available in a wide spectrum of scenarios, without bogging you down with needless technicalities. You’ll learn how artificial intelligence and machine learning can propel your business to the next level with forward-looking predictions and guidance. You’ll see how you can leverage a range of computing solutions to effortlessly scale your company’s output on-demand. You’ll understand the mechanisms you’ll need to put into place to maximize your company’s existing data in a multi-device-centric world.

Join me as we work together so that you can become a Google Cloud Digital Leader.
