Sun Life has selected AWS as its long-term strategic cloud technology provider to become a cloud-first organization, drive on-going innovation and develop new digital client experiences.
Sun Life will use AWS’s proven portfolio of cloud technologies, including analytics, Machine Learning, storage, security and databases, to drive operational efficiency and innovation to the company’s clients and employees.
Through its relationship with AWS, Sun Life became the first company in Canada to launch an immersive cloud skills training program, which is now available to Sun Life employees.
Dubbed ‘Catalysts for Cloud’ and using the AWS Skills Guild, a comprehensive skills enablement program to build cloud fluency, the initiative focuses on attracting and developing top talent.
The program brings together Sun Life’s cloud experts alongside AWS instructors to offer peer-to-peer learning and hands-on training to build cloud skills across the organization. Over the next few months, Sun Life will certify the first 450 business and technical employees with this AWS program and will continue to train more employees to help expedite cloud adoption and develop new client-facing and internal capabilities.
Laura Money, CIO and Executive Vice President, Sun Life, said: “Our aim in moving to the cloud is to be a digital innovator for our clients and use technology to shape how we work and develop employees at Sun Life.”Click below to share this article
