More Training Required In Cloud Solutions to Perform Better

As per a survey by Skillsoft 31% of decision makers surveyed rated their organization under-prepared to leverage Big Data

Skillsoft, a provider of cloud based learning solutions, has released findings from its survey titled ‘Leveraging the Power of Big Data and the Cloud’. The report provides key insights about how big data and cloud solutions are affecting organizational learning across Asia Pacific, including India. The supporting survey engaged with companies spread across 13 countries and 20 industrial sectors.

At the outset, the report highlights that 65% of decision makers in India ranked business intelligence as the greatest benefit of leveraging big data. Further, despite low levels of adoption of cloud solutions and big data in some industries, decision makers and learners alike agree that the benefits of both can drive significant and measureable impact for their respective businesses. To supplement that, a whopping 73% of respondents also agreed that more training is needed in relation to cloud solutions to help them perform better in their role.

“No longer can decision makers and business professionals ignore the potential that big data and cloud solutions can impact their business outcomes, their team dynamics, and even their own career advancement,” said Aruna Telang, Manager, Consulting Services – Asia, Skillsoft. “While many decision makers and learners we engaged with categorize themselves as having a limited level of understanding of cloud solutions and/or big data, proactive engagement and the implementation of tailor made learning modules can help organizations move forward and effectively manage their workforce knowledge, growth, capability, and subsequent market expansion.”

The Skillsoft report focusses on the decision makers and learners’ views on both cloud solutions and big data and identifies three key areas that form the crux of their understanding of these areas: i) competency and perceptions, ii) budgets and iii) strategy and adoption.
