IBM and ITE Collaborate on Analytics Education

IBM and ITE Collaborate on Analytics Education

IBM and the Institute of Technical Education will be collaborating to offer two data analytics led courses in Singapore. The curriculum being offered is based on the IBM’s Skills Academy Program[1], IBM's premier training and certification initiative worldwide. The program provides unique academic roadmaps for faculty members and students, preparing them to succeed in demanding positions unique to the market. The program provides a world class training experience, leveraging IBM official courses, IBM official instructors and hands-on laboratories in multiple languages.

ITE is the first Institute of Higher Learning in Southeast Asia to on-board the IBM Skills Academy Program.

Courses will be delivered through a blended learning approach, across e-learning as well as face-to-face sessions.

The two courses being offered through ITE are[2]:
1.     Data Scientist
a.     The Data Scientist career path prepares students to use the Big Data platform and data governance in order to efficiently store and manage massive amounts of data. This will require skills in Big Data architecture, such as Hadoop, Map Reduce, Hbase, Big SQL and BigSheets. The Data Scientist will use tools to capture, store and analyze structured and unstructured data.
2.     Predictive Analytics Modeler
a.     The Predictive Analytics Modeler career path prepares students to learn the essential analytics models to collect and analyze data efficiently. This will require skills in predictive analytics models, such as data mining, data collection and integration, nodes, and statistical analysis. The Predictive Analytics Modeler will use tools for market research and data mining in order to predict problems and improve outcomes.

After successful completion of each course, students are awarded co-branded IBM and ITE “Open Badges[3]”. An Open Badge is a cross-industry digital global recognition of technical skills which can be posted on to social and professional networking sites, as well as digital signatures. These badges provide significant benefits:
·         Digital version of your credentials
·         Recognition of industry aligned skills
·         Globally recognized standard
·         IBM facilitates opportunities to jobs/internships for badge earners
·         Free access to a badge wallet for easy management of your badges
·         Secure and verifiable means of storing and publishing your credentials
