As India focuses on integrating AI, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, and Data Analytics into daily business, it becomes more and more important to train personnel beyond young students and coders so they can fully embrace these emerging technologies.  In order to tackle this, tech giants have taken on the task of training the individuals in the system especially in the information technology (IT) departments and Amazon Web Services (AWS), the retail giant Amazon’s Cloud arm.

“This is the right time to skill them, train them in AI-enabled Cloud computing so that India can move faster on embracing new-age technologies. We have had successful meetings with senior government leaders on this subject as AWS is already leading in skilling the students and upskilling the workforce in the country,” Peter Moore, Regional Managing Director for AWS, Global Public Sector, APAC and Japan, told IANS.

According to Teresa Carlson, Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector, AWS, training relevant government employees is the key to fulfil the mission of Prime Minister Modi who aims to create a Cloud-first approach towards skilling and digital transformation, thus empowering over a billion people.

The Modi Government is moving rapidly to execute India Enterprise Architecture (IndEA). This is a single-window digitisation solution for cashless, paperless and faceless services.  This is a part of its vision to provide a “One Government” experience to citizens. In order to do this, a faster and smoother implementation of AI-driven Cloud is required across the spectrum.
