Edureka, the e-learning platform providing training in trending technologies, today announced four new cutting-edge technology programs to help IT professionals take advantage of the growing demand in Cybersecurity, DevOps, Big Data and Cloud Computing. The announcement comes at a time when multi-skilling with technologies of the future have become non-negotiable in the volatile IT industry.
The newly-launched certification programs in Cybersecurity, Kubernetes, Python Spark (Pyspark), and Azure 70-533 are in-depth, instructor-led, online programs that are packed with real-life case studies and practical demos. In fact, the Cybersecurity course is a first-of-its-kind boot camp designed to help freshers and experienced professionals learn about Cybersecurity from the ground up. There is a shortage of 1.8 million Cybersecurity professionals today and the demand is only going to intensify in the coming years.
Speaking about the announcement, Vineet Chaturvedi, Co-Founder, Edureka, said, “It is no longer enough to learn one skill in isolation; a combination of technologies and tools is needed in real-world jobs. Technology professionals must think of multi-skilling with a career path in mind and with special focus on fast-growing technologies. We have strategically introduced these four new certification programs keeping this industry requirement in mind. We will continue to expand our portfolio of programs to help techies keep up with the shifting skill-gap in the IT industry.”
The demand for DevOps experts who can implement Kubernetes is expected to skyrocket in coming years with Kubernetes becoming an orchestration tool of choice to manage multiple containers in mass production, especially in e-commerce, banking etc. PySpark is also increasingly being listed as the key analytics skill to land top Big Data jobs in 2018. The demand for Cybersecurity professionals in India has tripled in the last one year, and given the fact that India ranks 3rd among nations facing most cyber threats, a career in this domain will be highly rewarding. Azure 70-533 is a highly recommended program for IT professionals who want to pursue a career in Cloud Computing and become Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions Experts.
The newly-introduced programs are the latest additions to Edureka’s growing portfolio of more than 100 courses in technologies that are in demand globally. It also reiterates Edureka’s commitment to help tech professionals keep up with changing technologies and stay relevant in the IT industry. A skill report released earlier this month by Edureka had revealed that technology professionals will need to up-skill 15-20 times in their career to stay relevant in the industry.
