DTA introducing remote Azure training
The Digital Transformation Agency has teamed up with Microsoft to introduce an Azure cloud training program that can be conducted remotely in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new program, which is being provided under the DTA-led Microsoft Whole of Government Agreement, will see the launch of the Azure Technical Academy for federal government employees.
The course, coupled with an Azure Fundamentals teaching the basics of cloud services, will also be supported by exam vouchers to receive Microsoft certification.
Courses are being planned for May, June and July, with seats to be allocated on a first-come-first serve basis.
Separately, the DTA has revealed it is considering revising the approach-to-market dates for the establishment of the new Cloud Marketplace as a result of the workplace disruptions during the lockdown.
The agency is also reviewing the planned release dates for its and the annual open-to-new-sellers processes for the existing Software and Hardware Marketplaces, the agency said.
The DTA plans to continue to support all existing arrangements and is still accepting new suppliers as part of its streamlined onboarding process, the agency said.
But a review of other activities being carried out by the agency is also underway as a result of the disruptions.
