Jigsaw Academy is a well-established online analytics training academy based in India. They offer a range of data analytics courses, both instructor-led and video-based. With data analytics skills being in high demand, they have had great success since their inception over three years ago.
“One of the biggest benefits of our courses is the flexibility it offers. Students can log in from anywhere; all they need is an internet connection. They also have an opportunity to work in a virtual lab on real life data sets.” says Gaurav Vohra, CEO and co-founder of Jigsaw.
“Jigsaw Academy currently has students from over 20 countries, among them the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Israel, South Africa, Peru, Brazil, Japan, Netherlands, UAE, Qatar and Russia. In the last six months we have seen a significant increase in our foreign enrollments, particularly from countries in the South East Asia region like Singapore and Malaysia and from the UK. This is probably because there has been a significant increase in the adoption of data analytics and big data initiatives in these regions in both government and corporate sectors for which skilled data talent is urgently needed.” continues Gaurav.
Currently Jigsaw Academy offers three beginners courses and three advanced courses. Their flagship Foundation certification course in SAS has been designed by industry experts who have applied analytics to solve business problems in a variety of fields like retail, FMCG, financial services, telecom and health care.
Their Data Scientist Certification with R and Hadoop teaches predictive modelling techniques like regression and cluster analysis, all of which are covered through case studies on real business data.
Their latest launch offering is the HR analytics course, which focuses on all the basics of analytics. It also teaches HR professionals how to use data to measure training effectiveness, make better budgets and create better policies.
Jigsaw Academy’s advanced courses in Retail, Finance and Analytics with R are all designed and delivered by industry experts who use case studies on real business data to give students a truly practical learning experience.
"Our foreign enrollments have increased by 40% in the last six months. Yes data analytics skills are in high demand world over and I think we are able to give those interested in learning analytics a solid curriculum, taught by faculty who are experts in the field and at a cost that is very affordable." says Sarita Digumarti, Co Founder of Jigsaw.
