Head in the clouds? The Fourth Industrial Revolution, also referred to as Industry 4.0, is a new phase in the industrial revolution that also focuses heavily on Cloud Computing. 
It is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the internet.

The Higher Certificate in Information Systems (Cloud Computing) is a career-focused qualification that is intensive but also broad. It provides you with the fundamental and technical knowledge as well as the applicable skill set in Computer Hardware, Networking Technologies, IT Virtualisation, Security and Cloud Foundations.
