SINGAPORE - MediaOutReach - 14 March 2019 - NTUC LearningHub and the DevOpsInstitute have announced their collaboration to accelerate digitaltransformation within companies through the skills training and adoption ofDevOps -- an innovative approach and set of processes that brings developmentand operations teams together to complete software development. The partnershipwas announced today at the DevOps Institute APAC Roadshow in Singapore themed "Moving ahead in the Digital Era with DevOps", which was organisedin partnership with the Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) as asupporting and outreach partner.

Industries today are being disrupted. New software-drivenproducts and experiences are creating an immense wave of change across sectors --from transport (Grab, Gojek) to retail (Amazon) to cable TV and movies(Netflix) to music (Apple, Spotify) and hospitality (Airbnb). Companies need tocreate new business models -- and this depends on their ability to build anddeliver software rapidly, reliably, and repeatedly.


In utilising the DevOps approach, which is rapidlygaining popularity worldwide and in Singapore, organisations can create andimprove products at a faster pace than they can with traditional softwareapproaches. The increasing demand for DevOps professionals is most notable amongstemployers such as ST Electronics, Singapore Airlines, GovTech Singapore, KPMG,DBS, and Infosys.


Recognising the growing worldwide interest and adoptionof DevOps, NTUC LearningHub is excited to partner the DevOps Institute to offerglobally recognised DevOps training and certification to our learners. A totalof four courses will be launched, with the first -- DevOps Foundation -- alreadymapped to the Infocomm Technology (ICT) Skills Framework and scheduled to launchin April this year.
