See how this large IT services company reduced its time-to-reskill an employee by 80%

The Client

The client is a large IT services organization with revenues close to $800 M dollars. The company helps its Fortune 500 clients with their digital transformation journey. Delivering this kind of work required skilled employees in a range of technologies, such as Big Data, Data Sciences, Cloud. Mass hiring of specialists in each area was not a scalable solution.

The client had decided to leverage their Learning & Development teams to rapidly skill and reskill their talent and make them client ready. This way, they can deploy the right talent with right skills and be billable within a few months time.

The Client

Lack of real-life project knowledge: Reskilling through theoretical, classroom, web-based or self-paced learning was not impactful as the employee still does not have the experience of working in real-life environments. 

Cost overruns in setting up and managing the environment: Setting up the training environment with diverse configurations was an expensive proposition for the client. Additionally, the upkeep of the environment was complex and needed a dedicated team to manage.

Delays in setting up right environments: The IT team is neither skilled nor had the right tools to set up the test environment with configurations and applications required to replicate a real-life environment.
