Panellists at a recent Absa Bank, ReadytoWork virtual programme say cloud computing is the future of digital technology.

Discussing the topic ‘Let’s talk Cloud’, Chief Enablement Officer at Absa Bank, Justice Amegashie, and Head of Academics at IPMC, Daniel Agyare-Boateng, both hailed the concept as the next level of digital dominance in a world that is currently ready for it.

Absa Bank’s strategy has always been to harness the power of digital technology to enable accessibility and create convenience for clients and customers. Through programmes like ReadytoWork, the bank empowers the youth with digital and educational competencies to transit them from learning to earning.

Commenting during the panel discussion, Justice Amegashie said the cloud affords users a platform to be at their very best without the limitations of physical infrastructure. “You can access almost everything at the touch of a button; but what you should be mindful of is security. The cloud’s abilities must not be compromised where security is concerned. What’s most important about the cloud environment is making your security arrangements very robust,” he said.

Responding to the cloud’s value to skills development, Mr. Agyare-Boateng of IPMC said: “The cloud eliminates the cost involved in securing physical infrastructure and ensures that the youth are not disenfranchised in terms of skills development. What we want to achieve at IPMC is to make the study of cloud computing an integral part of our curricula”.

The Absa ReadytoWork programme also explored other relevant areas, including a call for the teaching of cloud computing to be made mandatory in the country’s tertiary educational system. The panellists also encouraged the youth to adapt to the changing workplace and always show relevance when opportunities become available.

The topic for this month’s Absa ReadytoWork session was chosen on the back of Absa Bank’s agreement with IPMC to introduce cloud computing to 1,000 students in the school. This stems from a global partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to make cloud computing relevant among the youth in Ghana.
