Bengaluru-based e-learning startup, Edureka, has partnered data integration software provider Talend to enhance its curriculum for the big data community. With over 85 live courses on big data, cloud computing, languages, mobile development, among others, Edureka is planning to help professionals improve their skills with industry-relevant insights targeted at supporting career growth.
“A few months ago, we realised that a lot of our learners, especially those who aspired for a career in big data and Hadoop, were looking for credible courses on Talend. We gave to them a course specially curated by experts, and based on real-life use cases. It was an instant hit. We were able to articulate Talend's ability to provide real-time data and application integration capabilities through our course. Through our partnership with Talend, we will be able to go a step further to helping learners by proving, more insights and industry-aligned content to accelerate their big data and data Integration careers," Durgesh Kaushik, chief marketing officer, Edureka, said in a statement.
As on February 2016, more than 250,000 learners have up-skilled themselves on the Edureka platform, with over 50,000 hours of live classes.
Given the speed with which big data technologies and Talend's integration platform are evolving, e-learning is becoming an important way for developers to keep up with the latest innovations, said Ashley Stirrup, chief marketing officer of Talend says.
"Through our direct collaboration with Edureka, we will be able to help shape the curriculum to match what is going on in the big data market and help train a new generation of developers to support companies as they transition to data-driven enterprises," Stirrup added.
