The global pandemic in 2020 was the catalyst to move companies to a remote-first workplace. As companies went remote, many employees took advantage of their time out of the office to boost their professional development. Last year saw a rise in the number of people taking upskilling courses on sites such as Udemy and Coursera, and in the number of workers and gaining certifications from software companies. In PwC’s Global Digital IQ survey, 86 percent of top-performing companies reported that digital training programs boosted employee engagement and performance.
At Matillion, we believe that no person, product, or process is ever finished. We think of ourselves as lifelong learners. We wanted to help our users continue learning about our product and all of the ways it could bring value to their company.
We introduced Matillion Academy in October to provide a guided training program online for Matillion ETL users and our partners. Since launch, our registrations and certifications have increased as people continue to put their professional development first and make the most of their organization’s investments in Matillion and cloud data platforms.
Matillion Academy by the numbers:
We are blown away by the number of people making their way through our five Matillion Academy offerings.
In just four short months, the Matillion Academy received 2200 registrations and provided 252 certifications to Matillion customers in 18 different countries.
