Tell us about your professional background.
As part of my Software Development Manager role in Oracle, 2014, I worked on a major on-premise to Oracle cloud migration for 40+ applications of my business unit. It was a highly successful migration project where all my team’s applications were seamlessly migrated over with several iterations of unit/integration testing and UAT. My role in this project was as the Technical owner of all these applications, where my team and I worked together with the Oracle Cloud System admins, Network admins, and Database admins to accomplish the goal. In 2014, I never imagined that I would decide to upskill myself in the near future to work from the other side of the table – as a Cloud Architect. The PG program in Cloud Computing enabled me to pursue this transition.
What did you like most about the program?
The fantastic content structure, projects and use cases, mentor sessions and support, quiz and assessments, well-distributed assignments throughout the course, cloud computing articles shared weekly, and group project opportunity with the Capstone project are key highlights of this Cloud Computing program. All of these are covered within a period of 6-7 months with an average commitment of up to 2 hours each day.
I want to specifically mention all those who made this journey a memory for the lifetime for me.
Nirmallya Mukherjee – The Einstein behind this course – every small detail of this course is put together by Nirmallya and his team. He is the reason why I had enrolled in this course. I was in a dilemma when I initially heard about the Great Learning Cloud Computing program. However, there were a series of introduction videos by Nirmallya that helped me make a firm decision on enrolling for it.
Mayank Pandey, Bhuvaneswari Subramani, Raghu Raman, Atul Sharma – Who provided the students with well-structured mentoring sessions throughout the course.
Yogitha – An excellent coordinator who cooperated with each student enrolled in the PGP-CC batch. She is an extremely approachable professional. She helped me with every problem that I faced during this course. I have not had this kind of positive experience with earlier courses and other universities.
Palak – A very good coordinator in the admissions team of the PGP-CC program.
What is your advice to the future aspirants of this Course?
I know it is overwhelming to imagine taking up a course along with your job. It can be even harder to decide if the course structure will be worth the cost and time involved. However, I can assure you from my personal experience that if you promise yourself to pursue the Great Learning PGP-CC program consistently (with no backlogs), you will stand strong in the path of being a successful Cloud architect.
