Pluralsight, the technology workforce development company, has teamed with broadliner Ingram Micro to build upon cloud competence and maturity internally across their technology teams and externally supporting partners’ capabilities to offer market-leading transformation solutions.
Together, the companies are delivering a full suite of tools and strategic skills development planning and consulting services to help organisations ensure that their technologists have the requisite cloud skills needed to enable the success of every cloud implementation. This relationship enables Ingram Micro Cloud’s network of partners to execute strategic and comprehensive skill development plans for all types of cloud initiatives, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Cybersecurity.
Cloud computing continues to be a top strategic imperative for organisations around the globe, contributing to the growing need for cloud skill development to fill skills gaps as organisations progress from adoption to maturity. In fact, research shows that the vast majority of IT leaders expect to expand their usage of cloud services over the next 1 – 3 years. By offering Pluralsight Skills on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, channel partners can access leading certification courses, hands-on labs and sandboxes to upskill their technologists and build the competencies needed to ensure they are ready to support cloud-based initiatives.
“We are excited to offer Pluralsight’s full suite of tech skills development solutions within the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace to help partners meet the demand for cloud skills development to solve business challenges and drive valuable outcomes”, said Ken Leonard, SVP of Global Ecosystem Solutions at Pluralsight. “With access to cloud training through Pluralsight Skills in addition to customised platform services certified by Pluralsight for Ingram Micro Cloud, partners will be able to build competencies across their organisations more effectively while accelerating their cloud skill development journeys at scale.”
Together, Pluralsight and Ingram Micro Cloud expect to deliver solutions that help organisations build technical expertise while accelerating profitability and growth. The full portfolio of Pluralsight products - Pluralsight Skills, Pluralsight Flow, and the recently acquired A Cloud Guru platform - together with the opportunity to deliver certified Pluralsight services will be available globally for Ingram Micro Cloud’s network of independent software vendors, value added resellers and managed service providers via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.
