Pluralsight acquires DevelopIntelligence

Technology skills platform Pluralsight has acquired skills consulting and training provider DevelopIntelligence.

DevelopIntelligence specialises in the areas of software development, open source technologies, and technology leadership development.

Pluralsight believes the acquisition enables it to deliver an all-in-one solution to enterprise customers in order to help them adapt to the evolving demands of upskilling a changing and increasingly distributed workforce.

"The future of how businesses work is fundamentally changing. As enterprises accelerate their digital transformation strategies, they must provide upskilling programs needed to drive these efforts," said Pluralsight co-founder and CEO Aaron Skonnard.

"Together, Pluralsight's on-demand skill development and DevelopIntelligence's highly customisable virtual learning programs and strategic consulting services will enable our customers to develop upskilling programs that scale to meet their specific needs while delivering the most effective path to skills development.

"What the DevelopIntelligence team has created is a natural fit for our long-term strategic growth and further differentiates us from other offerings that lack scale, customisability, or hands-on learning experiences."

DevelopIntelligence founder and CEO Kelby Zorgdrager said "I am proud of the DevelopIntelligence team and what we've delivered for our customers.

"This acquisition allows us to make an even bigger impact with our current customers while opening up new opportunities to help enterprises develop critical skills needed to innovate and stay competitive."

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
