From “Boots on the Ground” to “Heads in the Cloud”

Non-Profit aims to offer Cloud Training & business services to Corporate IT and HR teams

From "military dedication" to "civilian success,"Veterans 360 Services is approaching the challenging transition of military service to civilian life with an innovative, focused and all-inclusive, 360 degree, process of education and employment. This San Diego-based veteran's non-profit wants to lead the way to get recently-separated veterans into the workforce with an exciting and meaningful career in emerging cloud technology services. As Founder and CEO Rick Collins points out, "Since we are routinely engaging veterans, providing vocational training and transitional support, why not monetize these services and offer them to corporate clients so that while they benefit on a corporate level, we also benefit financially to sustain and grow our organization."

Veterans 360 Services will be reaching out to corporate clients to offer business-relevant services such as veteran recruitment, IT training and on-the-job and internship consulting. "If you have a smartphone, you are using cloud computing. This new business model is revolutionary and corporations need to hire high caliber employees in order to meet the growing demand," say Kevin L. Jackson, Vets 360-Cloud ExecutiveDirector. "Our returning heroes are part of the answer to this important challenge."

The synergy between a skilled and eager veteran and an employer who realizes the value of hiring a veteran is clear. Tony Medina, Veterans 360 Services President and long-time staffing and placement executive states, "The challenges for an employer is that many veterans simply do not have the entry-level skills needed to be successful in a dynamic corporate world. We are going to change that by providing life skills training, accreditation and placement services in Cloud, Ethical Hacking and Cyber Security."
By keeping their focus on the future, Veterans 360 Services is bringing the latest developments in high-tech education directly to military personnel who expect to re-enter the workforce and those who wish to keep ahead of the cloud curve. It's a win-win scenario for our veterans and those who wish to hire them.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
