NAB to train employees in cloud basics along with AWS

By

The National Australia Bank has launched a training programme for more than 2000 employees to learn skills in cloud computing.

The NAB Cloud Guild, in co-operation with Amazon Web Services, will provide participants, be they beginners or seasoned developers, the chance to learn cloud skills which will aid NAB in its technology transformation.

NAB chief technology and operations officer Patrick Wright (below, right) said in a statement that cloud technology would be critical to the company's switch to simpler and faster technology.

“Cloud computing is becoming a dominant technology platform and our people need to have the relevant skills to deliver for our customers," Wright said.

“Customers are demanding seamless, digital experiences and we need to be ready to deliver.".

The training will be funded by NAB and run by AWS, and focus on architecture, security, developers, operations and big data.

All NAB employees will be able to apply to join the programme with the requirement being that they show keenness to learn new things and have a basic grasp of the concepts behind technology.

AWS managing director, Australia and New Zealand, Paul Migliorini, said: “AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform and we are pleased to be working with NAB to deliver one of the most significant AWS Cloud training programmes in Australia or New Zealand.

“Demand for skills in cloud technologies is increasing. We are delighted to see that through this program, NAB is taking a real leadership position in technical skills development.”
