Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) has announced it is expanding its training and certification portfolio with offerings that enable customers to optimize technology for successful digital business transformation.
As quoted in the press release:
Transformation enabled by cloud computing, IoT, analytics, agile data centers, cybersecurity, mobility, ubiquitous access and the programmable network is only part of the equation. In addition to technology, workforce talent is key. Successful programs require involvement of stakeholders from beyond IT — and from other areas of the organization — who bring different perspectives. The evolution of job roles in the digital age requires new skills.
Business Transformation Portfolio
- The current Business Value certifications, the first offerings in the business transformation portfolio, enhance learners’ ability to work across customer lines of business. They enable IT organizations to understand motivations and desired business outcomes, help them architect and implement an approach which delivers the expected value, and effectively communicate how the technology investments enable the corporation to meet its strategic business objectives.
- Cisco has a pipeline of role-oriented program extensions planned throughout the next year around innovation, digital marketing and technical project management that will help create the talent required to drive business transformation across the industry.
