Nuvepro, a leading Hands-On Labs provider, today announced that Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions company, would be leveraging NuveproHands-On Labs to help the IT giant’s employees get practical experience on real-world environments, accurately assess their tech skills, and re-skill/ upskill them for future projects.
Nuvepro delivers Hands-On Labs, a replica of a production-like environment to help the employees practice on real-world configurations. Skill assessment through challenge labs is one of its largest use-case. In challenge labs, several technical challenges are created on the Hands-On Labs and delivered to employees as hackathons or skill assessment programs. This process makes the assessment more fun, realistic and allows the organization to create a data-driven baseline for the skill level.
TCS has been a pioneer in integrating hands-on learning into its learning ecosystem and shifting to a “Learning by Doing Culture”. At a time when people are no longer expected to be only generalists or specialists but a little of both, TCS’ Talent Development team has been continuously preparing a generation of talent in digital tech. Nuvepro’s integration into TCS’ learning ecosystem has boosted this initiative, helping 150K+ employees become project-ready with hands-on experience in key skills. The hands-on labs also enable global Hackathons at scale. More than 75K learners have developed their skills through TCS’ gamified hackathons.
“Any learning is incomplete if it is not amply practiced and assessed in a real-world like environment. At TCS, we want our employees to get hands-on experience so they can effectively use that learning to design transformational solutions for our customers’ real life business problems,” said Janardhan Santhanam, Global Head, Talent Development at TCS. “Hand-on labs like the ones Nuveprohelped us rapidly set up, deliver a balanced learning of theory and practice. The scalability and flexibility in setting up a production-like environment and creating challenges and hackathons helps us make learning relevant and impactful. Seamless integration with TCS learning platforms gives our learners a rich learning experience.”
Giridhar L.V, CEO, Nuvepro, said “TCS has pioneered and successfully implemented the hands-on culture and that’s what differentiates the approach of its L&D function. We are seeing great adoption by the employees and the participation has been really encouraging.”
