Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 08 November, 2018 – TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, API management, and analytics, today announced its collaboration with Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU) in its intent to expand the data analytics capabilities and know-how of the students in Malaysia.
TIBCO together with its partner, iZeno and APU University will jointly engage the students from the School of Computing, particularly those who have Data Science on their curriculum. Aiming to teach data analytics in a more visualised manner, the collaboration hopes to ultimately equip the students with key data skillsets that are essential for their future careers.
“We applaud Malaysia’s initiative in encouraging businesses to digitally transform to remain competitive. We recognise the critical and current need for industry-relevant talents to support business as they go through their digital transformation journey,” said Melissa Ries, general manager, Asia Pacific, and Japan, TIBCO.
The digital economy indeed plays an important role in Malaysia’s journey towards becoming a high-income nation. Improving the skills gap through learning opportunities for the youth will definitely help the nation in reaching its goal of digitisation.
“With our partnership with APU, we can offer our expertise in helping address the data skills gap in Malaysia. We understand how important the youth is in developing the digital ecosystem of the nation, and so through collaboration, we hope to augment their relevant capabilities and skill sets through our technology and innovative solutions,” Ries added.
TIBCO provides a holistic approach in the field of data analytics, bringing together an exciting hands-on learning experience coupled with its innovative technology and an effective ecosystem of support was needed to enhance the MOU.
“Close collaboration between higher education institutions and technology vendors are crucial to the success of developing the right talent. We are excited about partnering with TIBCO to support this national initiative,” said Jason Lin, co-founder, and director, iZeno
Students will be provided with hands-on practice using the TIBCO tools, such as TIBCO Spotfire, in order to be equipped with in-depth knowledge on data science. There will also be opportunities for students to learn through guest lectures, seminars, networking sessions, and relevant training modules with industry experts.
“APU has always been open to collaborations that will provide our students with more expansive ways of education. We are very pleased to have this opportunity to partner with TIBCO, which allows us to fulfill our promise to our students of high-quality education,” Professor Dr. Ir. Vinesh Thiruchelvam, School of Computing, Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation. “This will definitely provide them with digital skills through this practice-based learning.”
