San Carlos, Calif. – December 18, 2018 – MarkLogic Corporation, the leading operational and transactional Enterprise NoSQL database provider, today launched Data Hub Flight School, a unique learning and development program to educate technologists on next generation data management and data hub technology. The Data Hub Flight School, aimed at application developers, takes training to new heights by enabling guided simulations of real-world data integration projects, covering such challenges as security and data modeling that often prevent companies from getting the most from their data assets.
The typical duration of Data Hub Flight School is 8-12 hours per week over four weeks, a time frame that can be expanded or condensed based on bandwidth of the attendee, and is part of MarkLogic® University’s free technical and business user training on the MarkLogic NoSQL database platform, which bridges traditional classroom training and real-world, hands-on simulation. The program will set technologists up for future success, drive better data management for customers and quicker, less costly integration efforts for MarkLogic partners.
MarkLogic’s data hub technology creates a centralized and simplified management system for an organization’s data in the cloud and/or on-premises. With the real-world Data Hub Flight School simulation project, technologists will be better prepared to make data hubs a success in any organization from Day 1. By offering a real-world simulation of building and deploying a data hub, MarkLogic is providing the next generation of technologists with the data management techniques and best practices to keep them skilled and in high demand for years to come.
“Data is key to the digital transformation efforts of all companies and data hub technology is what makes that data highly actionable. This program will provide MarkLogic University graduates with the knowledge and confidence to build a NoSQL data hub with the Data Hub Framework and give them practical, hands-on experience under real-world conditions,” said Julie Furt, Senior Vice President of Global Consulting & Training Services at MarkLogic. “This will expedite the learning curve on using data hubs to build innovative applications and solve real world data integration challenges. It also saves time, resources and money for our customers and delivery partners by preparing technologists for data combat at the most elite levels of business.”
Data hubs have emerged as a key solution in the battle to collect, harmonize, analyze and manage an ever-growing data set within an organization, as well as to protect and safely share mission-critical data to do business in the digital economy. MarkLogic Data Hub Framework, which provides the structure to build and run a data hub, along with MarkLogic Data Hub Service, a fully automated cloud service, are two of the industry’s leading approaches to utilizing data hub technology to drive greater business insights and decision making.
Participation in the project simulator begins with instructions by a MarkLogic project coordinator who guides the trainee through a set of assignments and checkpoints. The simulator combines aspects of structured independent learning alongside coaching and mentoring opportunities. Depending on need, the program can be completed in the standard month, or faster or slower. By the end, technologists graduate with the confidence and practical experience to effectively deliver projects using the MarkLogic NoSQL database platform.
