TLA enables technology sales and IT professionals with training and resources, including a new Desktop as a Service sales certification.


IRVINE, Calif. – Nov. 21, 2019 – RapidScale, a Cox Business company, today announced the launch of Technology Leadership Academy (TLA), a self-paced online learning center with video-based training for sales and cloud professionals. The learning platform features three certification tracks that go over how to sell some of the most prominent cloud technologies, including Desktop as a Service (DaaS), business productivity software, and managed cloud services. Each track is taught by a RapidScale expert with years of industry experience.

“The DaaS training perfectly aligns with my day-to-day sales responsibilities and focuses on the capabilities and value of the technology,” said Andrew Guzi, account representative at CDW. “I look forward to using this content on my client calls.”

TLA includes a Sales Toolkit to arm trusted advisors with go-to-market sales and marketing resources on a variety of cloud services. This includes co-brandable collateral, case studies, and pre-written email templates.

“The goal of building this dynamic training platform was to provide trusted advisors with the right tools to drive results,” said Bob Buchanan, RapidScale’s executive vice president of sales. “Learning the components of the technologies combined with sales tactics gives you an edge in identifying more cloud opportunities and closing more cloud deals.”

The site also offers training content from industry-leading technology providers such as Mimecast, Veeam, and VeloCloud, now part of VMware. Dedicated Schools feature some of today’s most innovative cloud solutions, including Desktop as a Service (DaaS), disaster recovery and backup, email security, SD-WAN and business productivity software. Here, learners will find additional materials related to the fundamentals, features and benefits, and technical overviews of each cloud solution.
