Greater China multi-cloud adviser and managed services provider ICG has entered a partnership with Cloud Academy to offer the enterprise cloud training platform to customers in Hong Kong, mainland China, Macau and Taiwan.

ICG plans to take advantage of Cloud Academy's multi-cloud enterprise platform to help its clients close the cloud skills gap and accelerate innovation.

The partnership covers all Cloud Academy products and training materials, and will allow the development of customized, measured and on-demand training programs for ICG clients.

“ICG’s core mission is to be the enterprise market’s trusted adviser and accelerating their Cloud and Digital Transformation Journey, Cloud Academy acts as the best and powerful tool to embrace our mission” ICG chairman and CEO Andy Lau said.

“We’re excited to be Cloud Academy’s APAC partner, where we’ve built strong relationships with well-known enterprises seeking to accelerate cloud adoption. We have travelled to the opposite end of the world two years ago and have finally found the partner we have been looking for.”

ICG is the top AWS next generation managed services provider in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and China, and an AWS advanced consulting partner.

“Cloud Academy partners with industry leaders who share a common vision of helping organizations easily deploy cloud technology through targeted enablement and learning,” Cloud Academy vice president for global partnerships and alliance Randy Streu said.
