AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) November 05, 2019
QuickStart Learning Inc., the IT skills training organization that introduced CLIPP, announced the launch of DevOps University, a new venture committed to being an education provider and a skills and career development center for people interested in getting into DevOps. The University will also help organizations achieve their DevOps goals and KPIs through its workforce readiness platform.
“DevOps University's mission will be to serve two purposes.” Said Ed Sattar, CEO. “It would be the platform that enables people to get into a DevOps career, and secondly, serve as a workforce readiness platform for organizations to help their DevOps teams meet their goals through an integrated multi-modality personalized learning experience using AI.”
“There are more than 50,000 jobs listed online for DevOps Engineers and Managers in the US alone. This is in-line with the prevalent IT skills gap in the industry. DevOps University will help people looking to start a career in IT and turn them into DevOps Engineers, Managers, and Leaders through our DevOps boot camps & subscriptions.”
Sattar further said, “Most organizations struggle with DevOps deployment in a multi-cloud environment, automating testing through the DevOps Cycle, standardization of DevOps practices, getting legacy and waterfall teams to transition to DevOps, and getting ROI on their DevOps investment. All of these challenges are indicative of either the workforce not being ready, or not having the right skill set to meet their goals. QuickStart’s DevOpsUniversity.org, with the fusion of an AI based workforce readiness platform, and industry’s top DevOps experts and learning assets, will create future DevOps leaders. Further, we are proud to democratize it by making significant features of our offering free of cost to individuals and organizations.”
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be roughly 1.3 million occupational openings for IT professionals by 2026. The Bureau’s numbers indicate what many are calling an IT skills gap, i.e. there will be more IT jobs in the market than IT professionals to fill them. DevOps Engineers make over $100,000 a year with the more skilled and experienced making over $140,000 a year. QuickStart’s DevOps Academy aims to create skilled DevOps engineers, managers, and leaders to fill the gap and to help organizations optimize their DevOps investment to maximize ROI.
QuickStart is an Austin based Microsoft Gold Partner accredited by Cisco, NetApp, ITIL, CompTIA, and EC Council. The organization uses its proprietary learning methodology and workforce readiness platform (CLIPP) to transform IT teams. The platform maximizes IT workforce readiness by personalizing adaptive learning using AI and multi-modal to meet IT goals and objectives.
