In the age of digitalisation, cybersecurity, data literacy and analytics, have come to be some of the most sought after skillsets. However, the nascent fields are fast-evolving, thus falling short on the required curriculum for training the young minds. However, several established conglomerates in the respective fields have taken it upon themselves to impart essential skills and training and these important disciplines. Here’s taking a quick look at some of the well-established enterprises that are also venturing into imparting training & development in the field of education, data analytics, cybersecurity, and more.
Qlik: The Qlik Academic Program
Having served over 50,000 customers across the globe, including some of the leading names in India like BookMyShow, Bajaj Auto, Micromax and more, Qlik is a data analytics and business intelligence platform that believes that data literacy is an important skill. Qlik’s emphasis on data literacy is crucial for a future workforce that needs to be comfortable with data regardless of what industry they are in. When we talk about becoming data literate, it’s not about becoming a data scientist. It’s about learning a skill that is now as important as the ability to read and write. To the same end, Qlik has expanded its ‘Qlik Academic Program’ to over 150 universities across India. The program now runs in some of the most noteworthy institutions in India, like IIM-B, IIM-A, TISS, SP Jain School of Global Management, NIT Karnataka, NIT Patna, and more.
The adoption of the Qlik Academic Program in India is most prominent across engineering institutions since analytics aligns well with subjects such as data mining, database management and programming. However, there has been an uptake in other academic streams such as business management and social sciences, which are starting to use the program to both assists with research projects while also to learning to improve decision-making processes through data. Through this free-to-use online program, Qlik is helping India’s young minds and professionals to be job-ready, equipped with essential skills in advanced analytics and data literacy.
Cyberbit Range – Cybersecurity Training & Simulation Platform
Despite substantial investments in cybersecurity products, organizations are not prepared for cyberattacks because their cybersecurity teams will only experience their first cyberattack while on the job. Furthermore, organizations are experiencing a drastic shortage in cybersecurity professionals, projected to reach 3.5 million globally by 2021.
Cyberbit Range is the world-leading platform for training cybersecurity teams. It uses a unique, hyper-realistic simulation approach, which immerses cybersecurity teams in a virtual security operations center (SOC), and confronts them with real-world, simulated cyberattacks. Trainees use commercial security tools to detect, investigate and mitigate the attack. This approach mirrors a real-life attack scenario and therefore prepares security teams more effectively than ever before, to be at peak performance during the attack. Cyberbit Range is used by enterprises, governments and universities worldwide to train and upskill cybersecurity experts, educate students, and address the cybersecurity skill shortage.
ONVU Learning by Onvu Tech
Surveillance systems are gradually becoming a part and parcel of modern educational institutions. ONVU Learning is taking this burgeoning infrastructure one step forward by integrating it with Video Analytics and Artificial Intelligence. This approach enables the respective educators to gain superior insights into their pedagogical techniques and address the challenges that they are not able to otherwise visualize. Similarly, it also helps them in better class management, thanks to 360-degree cameras which capture the complete view of the class throughout their lecture.
