AMP has an inner ‘cloud academy’ that it utilizes to train up employees in cloud – and specifically AWS – capabilities.

Visch did not say how many employees had been certified by means of the plan because it launched in June final yr, but she did notice that preliminary curiosity was significant.

“Within a working day, we gained a lot more than 400 registrations,” she stated.
