New Delhi: Digital Vidya (www.digitalvidya.com) has partnered with FutureSkills, the flagship reskilling initiative by NASSCOM to Upskill/reskill the employees of the Indian IT/ITES sector on identified skill gaps in the current talent pool such as Digital Marketing and Big Data Analysis.
Organizations are constantly looking for employees to solve problems in technology-rich environments and link their work to business value. This has resulted in a significant increase in the number of data science jobs and roles, and consequently an apparent need for a well-defined competency map for these jobs. The competency map defines the principal competence for each job including the knowledge and skills required to do the job well.
In a recently signed MoU, both the organizations have come together to partner and launch foundation courses on Big Data & Data Science Courses. The two courses will be available on Digital Vidya & NASSCOM’s FutureSkills platforms. The courses are designed to establish an understanding of Big Data Analytics, visualization, Data Processing & Management along with knowledge of various Big Data platforms and their fundamentals. The courses is highly recommended by the Industry and is validated by IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council NASSCOM. All FutureSkills subscribers can take up the course at no additional cost on the NASSCOM platform.
