Re-iterates the commitment to upskill IT talent pool with in-demand skills
Edureka, a global e-learning platform providing training in trending technologies, has launched courses in IoT, and Ethereum Developer. The live, instructor-led courses are in-depth training programs that are packed with real-life case studies and practical demos at every stage.
Both IoT and Blockchain platforms, including Ethereum, are ranked among the top tech skills to have in 2018. The courses have been launched at a time when re-skilling is not an option but a necessity for professionals in the volatile IT industry.
Vineet Chaturvedi, co-founder, Edureka, said: “The average life span of a technical skill is now lower than ever. Continuous up-skilling is the only way technology professionals can keep pace with the rapidly changing skill landscape.
“At Edureka, we are committed to help these professionals master the most relevant tech skills and stay on track with their career goals. With this objective, we have introduced structured training programs in IoT and Ethereum to enable mid-level executives close their skill gap and fast-track their career growth.”
The IoT market is expected to grow from USD 170.57 billion in 2017 to USD 561.04 billion by 2022 at CAGR of 26.9 percent according to market research reports. With devices becoming smart, there is a growing demand for professionals who can implement architecture to handle the end-to-end computing at the device level.
Adoption of intelligent agents like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant is on the rise and IoT will become the backbone of future customer value, resulting in a five-fold increase in job opportunities in this area.
The demand for professionals with skill sets in Blockchain technologies has increased by 50 percent in the last one year and India is emerging as a leader for Blockchain talent. LinkedIn data has shown a 30 percent increase in year-on-year job postings in Blockchain. Ethereum has multiple uses in domains such as Finance, Technology, Cybersecurity and Healthcare, among others.
This has led to a demand for Blockchain specialists that far exceeds the supply. Demand is largely from IT/IT services, Finance and Security domains.
