As more local enterprises develop a growing appetite for digital technologies, country’s largest distributor MSI-ECS Philippines Inc., hopes to complement this growth by expanding its education platform with the main goal of providing the most advanced ICT platform and training skills upgrade for local ICT professionals.
The expansion took place when the ICT distributor’s education arm, MSI-ECS Education, was appointed as the new learning partner of Huawei, Hortonworks, and Pivotal following a successful on-boarding process conducted by said tech giants in the last quarter of 2018. This new academic partnership allows a customized learning path for tech professionals who require skills and certifications to implement big data solutions, cloud-native adoption, networking, datacenter, containers, and microservices technologies.
As Huawei Authorized Learning Partner (HALP), MSI-ECS Education is authorized to provide Huawei-approved trainings and certification courses that would equip technical engineers and experts with specific skills such as installation, configuration, application, and troubleshooting of Datacom and Internet Protocol (IP) technology.
Similarly, MSI-ECS Education has been given a green light to run a Hortonworks Training Program using the course materials designed by the Hadoop experts. Students will gain worldwide access to high-quality educational content including industry-leading lecture and hands-on lab, certification courses, and hands-on experience with Hortonworks technologies.
On the other hand, students who would like to learn more about Pivotal Technologies can now opt to take the five Pivotal-related courses. Through this program, they would be able to build their cloud-native skills to sustain new levels of competitive performance. They would also have an opportunity to accelerate their learning curve with the help of wealth of tools, modules, and dedicated space that they can make use of during the training period.
MSI-ECS Education will start offering all these training courses by first quarter of 2019.
According to Tom Pascual Jr, MSI-ECS First AVP for Technology and Product Solutions Group, ICT professionals would be able to support their respective organization’s objective of moving their applications to a new level platform with optimized, reusable and ready services. “It’s another leap towards the future,” he added.
MSI-ECS Education was first introduced in 2008, offering ICT training courses that would enhance literacy and competency of participants on different IT-related topics.
Since its inception, it has conducted more than a hundred IT education and certification programs to a number of clients coming from various industries such as telecommunications, banking and finance, BPOs, government agencies, and hotels. Its recent appointment as a learning partner of Huawei, Hortonworks, and Pivotal further establishes MSI-ECS Education as a premiere training center for the highly technical individuals and professional training center in the Philippines.
