About Solliance Training


Unlike most companies that provide technical training and content creation, Solliance is not a company of professional trainers. We are a partnership of experts who work in the trenches, regularly delivering high value to companies worldwide where we are needed most. We are thought leaders in our respective disciplines, often sharing our experiences with others through community meetups, blogs, conferences, and other venues. Operating close to the leading edge of the cloud allows us to keep up with its fast and constant growth rate. We are special forces, not the army.

It is this caliber of experts we call upon when our customers require training to upskill their team or provide coaching in technical and business-focused learning engagements. Solliance, at its core, is a consulting company that is focused heavily on helping organizations succeed in their cloud, data and AI, security, applications, microservices, infrastructure, and DevOps initiatives. However, from the start, Solliance has focused on helping these organizations to enable their employees and customers to continue the work we started through our training initiatives. Furthermore, we train companies on how to implement and sell their own products and services successfully.

Solliance is not a professional training company but a company of experts who use their expertise and daily experience in the field to deliver training engagements grounded in real-world knowledge and practical advice. We specialize in multi-mode training deliveries, combining presentations, interactive Q&A sessions, group activities, and labs. This approach is especially effective in the increasingly ubiquitous virtual deliveries.

In recognition of our unique brand of training, coupled with the increasing demand for our training and learning content creation services, we have created the training practice to nurture, innovate, and grow in this area. This move enables us to pursue science-based, novel approaches to learning, invest in our training platform, build up our catalog of on-demand training, expand our training analytics capabilities, and other innovations.

In addition to training deliveries, we develop bespoke training content, write official platform documentation, developer guides, practice playbooks, solution accelerators, and migration guides, to name a few. Our training platform is core to our events-in-a-box approach to in-person and virtual live training deliveries, enabling us to handle the logistics from attendee registrations to full-fledged lab environments and user metrics. Finally, Solliance has years of experience creating, organizing, and running technical conferences, whether held in person, virtually, or as a hybrid event.

Whether you require training for your organization, learning content creation, or live events, let our experts and our experience be your guide to success.
