New Delhi : Avaali, the leader in Shared service automation for large enterprises today, announced that it has signed up partnerships with KSIT and KSSEM University in Bangalore, Karnataka and GEIT University, Gunupur, Odisha as part of its University Alliances Program under Avaali Academy. As a part of this engagement, Avaali Academy will be setting up a Digital Centre of Excellence with these Universities to build the skill pool focused on various technologies, including Procure to Pay automation, Enterprise Content Management, Robotic Process Automation, Process Mining and core development skills.
The demand for digital skills has significantly risen, requiring a workforce that has adaptability in terms of their skills and competencies and the ability to switch gears to meet the increasing requirements of the business. The reality is that there is a significant digital skill gap, and enterprises are struggling to find people who have a sound techno-functional understanding and who are industry-ready.
