Both are delivering tools and skills development planning and consulting services to help organisations ensure their workers have the requisite skills needed to implement cloud.
Ingram Micro Cloud’s network of partners will be able to execute skill development plans for all types of cloud initiatives including infrastructure as a service and cybersecurity.
Pluralsight says cloud computing continues to be a top imperative, contributing to the growing need for cloud skill development to fill skills gaps as organisations progress from adoption to maturity.
Pluralsight cites research that the vast majority of IT leaders expect to expand their usage of cloud services over the next one to three years.
By offering Pluralsight skills on the Ingram Micro Cloud marketplace, channel partners can access 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.
“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,” says Pluralsight senior vice president of global ecosystem solutions Ken Leonard.
Together, Pluralsight and Ingram Micro Cloud expect to deliver solutions that build technical expertise. The portfolio of Pluralsight products—Pluralsight Skills, Pluralsight Flow, and the recently acquired A Cloud Guru platform—will be available for Ingram Micro Cloud’s network of independent software vendors, value added resellers and managed service providers via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.
“With this new relationship, our channel partners can implement strategic skill development plans and help their teams build the skills needed to get the most out of their cloud investments,” concludes Ingram Micro Cloud executive cloud services John Dusett.
