NTUC LearningHub and the DevOps Institute collaborate to offer four globally recognised DevOps training and certification programmes
SINGAPORE - Media
OutReach - 14 March 2019 - NTUC LearningHub and the DevOps
Institute have announced their collaboration to accelerate digital
transformation within companies through the skills training and adoption of
DevOps -- an innovative approach and set of processes that brings development
and operations teams together to complete software development. The partnership
was announced today at the DevOps Institute APAC Roadshow in Singapore themed "Moving ahead in the Digital Era with DevOps", which was organised
in partnership with the Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) as a
supporting and outreach partner.
Industries today are being disrupted. New software-driven
products 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 to
create new business models -- and this depends on their ability to build and
deliver software rapidly, reliably, and repeatedly.
In utilising the DevOps approach, which is rapidly
gaining popularity worldwide and in Singapore, organisations can create and
improve products at a faster pace than they can with traditional software
approaches. The increasing demand for DevOps professionals is most notable amongst
employers such as ST Electronics, Singapore Airlines, GovTech Singapore, KPMG,
DBS, and Infosys.
Recognising the growing worldwide interest and adoption
of DevOps, NTUC LearningHub is excited to partner the DevOps Institute to offer
globally recognised DevOps training and certification to our learners. A total
of four courses will be launched, with the first -- DevOps Foundation -- already
mapped to the Infocomm Technology (ICT) Skills Framework and scheduled to launch
in April this year. The course will be funded by SkillsFuture Singapore, and
NTUC LearningHub is the first training provider in Singapore to offer DevOps
courses that are eligible for SkillsFuture funding. The other three courses -- Certified
Agile Service Manager (CASM), DevOps Leader (DOL), and DevSecOps Engineering
(DSOE) -- will be launched later in May this year. e2i will partner NTUC
LearningHub and DevOps Institute to introduce the programme and reach out to
more Singaporeans and companies to acquire DevOps capabilities. Together, the
target is to train and certify 120 professionals in the DevOps Foundation
programme and 60 professionals in each of the other three programmes annually.
LearningHub, we are always on the lookout for the latest industry solutions to
improve the skillsets and employability of our Singaporean workforce," said Mr.
Kwek Kok Kwong, Chief Executive Officer of NTUC LearningHub. "With the rising
popularity of the DevOps approach and the growing demand for DevOps expertise
by industries, we are excited to partner with the DevOps Institute and leverage
their DevOps Certification Model to equip our local workforce with expertise in
this field. Our partnership with the DevOps Institute will expand our growing
repertoire of best-in-class partners and make this emerging skill more
accessible and affordable to our local workforce."
"DevOps Institute is proud to partner with NTUC
LearningHub, which has been instrumental in Continuing Education of
Professionals across Singapore over many years," said Mr. Dheeraj Nayal, Region
Head -- APJ & Global Community Ambassador of DevOps Institute. "Considering
that DevOps Institute's core objective has been to propagate and deliver
Continuous Learning for Professionals in the DevOps & Agile domain, this
partnership complements and enhances the value of NTUC LearningHub, and creates
a great opportunity for learners to advance their skills for the future. We are
really delighted to announce our partnership and welcome NTUC LearningHub as
our Strategic Registered Education Partner in Singapore."
Ms. Jayne Groll, Chief Executive Officer of
DevOps Institute said, "DevOps Institute is committed to advancing the careers
of the people who will make DevOps a reality for their organizations through
our unique skills-based certification model.
We are excited to partner with NTUC LearningHub and support their
efforts in equipping the Singapore workforce with the skills, knowledge, ideas,
and learning (SKIL) that is necessary for the digital age. We welcome them as a
Strategic Registered Education Partner in Singapore and look forward to working
closely with them."
steers toward Services 4.0, e2i continues to work with partners, bringing
better ways of working to our workforce. In a typical IT environment,
Developers and Operations often work in silos causing delays. DevOps is a more
holistic approach for an end-to-end software delivery lifecycle, where
operations and development engineers work together to improve collaboration among
all stakeholders. With DevOps capabilities, our workers and businesses can work
faster and more effectively, which will help maintain their competitive edge,"
said Mr. Gilbert Tan, CEO of e2i.
