Globally, thousands of employees have already been enrolled in the program, including Asia-based employees in among others India, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines. Now, the IT firm is lining up its 8,000 Australia and New Zealand workforce to follow suit, with the region’s cohort planned to complete the training before the end of December. 

“Now more than ever, technology is playing an essential part in how everyone works, and cloud in particular plays a critical role supporting this,” said Seelan Nayagam, managing director at DXC Technology Australia and New Zealand. “With a global skills shortage in cloud technologies, it is the perfect time for our employees to embrace this opportunity.”

“We are equipping our people with the skills needed for the future so they can help our clients accelerate transformation and innovation during this crisis and beyond.”

Meanwhile, spokespersons of technology partners Google (Rhody Burton), Microsoft (Rachel Bondi) and VMware (Kerrie-Anne Turner) welcomed DXC’s investment in cloud knowledge and people skills, highlighting that it will benefit customers, its own people and the strength of alliances.
