IBM Recognizes Aegis School of Data Science for Building Skills in Analytics & Data Science

BENGALURU, September 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

At IBM Solutions Technical Conference in Bengaluru on 1st Sep 2017, Aegis was recognized for 'Building Capabilities in the areas of Analytics & Data Science for the students and working professionals using IBM Software' by Yeo Hwee Lee, Director, Software Services, Software Group Asia Pacific and Paramantapa Dasgupta, Career Education for IBM India & South Asia.

Accepting the recognition, the Dean, Dr. Abhijit Gangopadhyay said, "It's overwhelming to be recognized by IBM in the Analytics & Data Science domain. This recognition reflects our continued commitment and created a niche demand for Aegis School of Data Science candidates globally."

With data science and analytics increasing relevance across various sectors, the global demand for big data, analytics, AI, machine learning, cognitive computing and data science professionals is on a rise. All companies, irrespective of the size, rely on data and analytics for decision making. Heightened competition and pricing pressure from clients have compelled IT services companies across the globe to focus on automation, new revenue sources from disruptive areas like data science, advanced analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, big data, etc. At the same time, individual-level growing job insecurities, layoffs, automation and technology upgradation have put stress on professionals compelling themselves to upskill and reskill to adapt to newer technologies. However, machine learning, big data, and data science skills are the most challenging areas to recruit for and potentially can create the greatest disruption to ongoing product development and go-to-market strategies if not filled. There is huge shortage of skilled manpower with deeper level of knowledge with applied skills.

Amid this, in 2015, Aegis School of Data Science in association with IBM launched a world-class full-time and Executive Post Graduate Program in Data Science, Business Analytics and Big Data. This program is unique and it covers all the three aspects: analytics, data science and big data. In no time the program became one of the best and most successful programs with deep inputs on Machine learning, NLP, Statistics, R, Python, Hadoop, Spark, Cognitive computing, IBM SPSS, IBM infosphere biginsight, IBM watson, IBM Cognos, Cognitive Computing and many more technologies and tools taught by the best data scientists, Aegis faculties and IBM subject-matter experts. This program has trained hundreds of college passouts and working professionals with upto 30+ years of experience.

In addition to its mission to bridge the talent gap in analytics, Aegis and IBM have joined hands earlier this year to develop the high-end skills in the Cyber Security domain and to help companies with 21st century's greatest threat.
