Desirable training outcomes achieved

The Challenge

  • The existing workforce of Accenture required immediate upskilling on Azure to match the evolving changes in the domain.  
  • Due to its increasing efforts in cloud innovation, Accenture doubled up its IT infrastructure, which resulted in increased operational costs. Hence, upskilling employees on Azure was the need of the hour as it would mean better optimization of Azure solutions to reduce IT cost. 
  • Moreover, Accenture wanted to upskill its cloud team with advanced skills to ensure the successful delivery of its client’s project requirements. 

Took up the Azure IoT Hub Course with CloudThat Team. It covered all the important aspects of the necessary topics. Trainers were well trained and had in-depth knowledge of the topics taken. They also provided the required course materials and hands-on kit for experimentation purposes. They provided valuable insights on both theoretical and practical aspects. All the queries were also resolved related to the topics of the course and beyond. It was an informative course and is recommended for all avid learners,”

- Said a participant from Accenture


  • The CloudThat team did a pre-training skill assessment of Accenture employees to understand their current level of knowledge on Azure and their further skill requirements.  
  • As per the assessment outcome, CloudThat’s expert trainers curated a customized upskilling program on Azure which was aligned with Accenture’s business objectives and project requirements. 
  • CloudThat team maintained a global leaderboard to store learner’s metrics during the training. While toppers were rewarded, learners at the bottom were given extra sessions to cover up the learning gap 
  • Throughout the training, we tracked the learner’s progress through weekly assessments and reported the outcomes to Accenture. This helped in understanding the scope of improvements in the future Azure sessions and getting the subsequent sessions customized accordingly. 
  • Additionally, we provided learners with free access to CloudThat’s TestPrep Platform – A digital platform built by CloudThat’s certification experts where learners can practice questions and test their Azure skills before the internalevaluation within the organization. 
  • The training was then delivered by highly experienced Microsoft certified in-house trainers 

The Results

We have received an overwhelming response and positive feedback| for all our Azure training sessions delivered to Accenture employees across locations. From course curriculum to the expertise of our Azure certified trainers, every segment of our training programs has garnered excellent feedback.
