Cisco has announced a new data and analytics training portfolio as well as new updates to its data center certification track. The new data and analytics offerings focus on integrated data management and virtualization, teaching in-demand skills needed to connect data, processes and experiences, and make better business decisions.

The new courses include:

  • Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data and Analytics - Trains an individual to design scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center solutions using Cisco UCS integrated infrastructure for big data and analytics.
  • Data Virtualization - Provides hands-on skills with the Cisco Data Virtualization Platform, including the Cisco Information Server and Business Directory.

The CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE Data Center certification exams and curricula have also been revised to offer data center network management, streamlined operations through automation, and the capability to implement unified computing and advanced virtualization. The programs provide the skills to establish policy-driven infrastructure across data center physical and virtual resources and the ability to secure the necessary data center resources.

“Cisco is preparing professionals for today’s expanding job roles and new skills requirements. These new data analytics and data center offerings supplement our recently introduced cloud, IoT, and cybersecurity certification programs. Together, they help professionals develop the skills to manage and control enterprise-wide deployments securely and consistently. With Cisco certified practitioners, enterprises benefit from faster deployments, more efficient operations, and better business outcomes with their IT infrastructure,” saysTejas Vashi, senior director, product strategy & marketing, Cisco Services.
