SCOTTSDALE, AZ and LITTLE ROCK, AR -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- nGage Labs, Inc., the leading provider of personalized mobile engagement solutions, in collaboration with the Business College at Arkansas Tech University (ATU) is offering paid internships in the field of Business Data Analytics and Data Visualization.
The 3-month program will give students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the field of Data Management and Data Visualization. Students are matched with a mentor who will serve as their guide for the duration of the program. Participants are then given a multi-disciplined overview designed to gain exposure to key technologies in the proprietary nGage Labs technology stack. Under the guidance of the mentor, participants select suitable projects out of the ongoing in-house project inventory. The project work is managed through the nGage Labs Innovation Sprint Planning process. This process will help further expose the participants to standard business practices and provide them with opportunities to interact with a broader range of nGage Labs analytic and technology associates.
"We're very excited to partner with Arkansas Tech University in the emerging field of advanced data science to offer a unique practical experience to a passionate group of business data analytics students that will be our employees of tomorrow," said Rod Ford, CEO, nGage Labs. "When Arkansas Tech approached us seeking input into their new Business Data Analytics degree program it was a refreshing overture as it is critical to build bridges to universities to ensure we have access to employable emerging technology skills. Several previous attempts to seek synergy in skills of graduating students with the needs of emerging growth technology companies have not yielded satisfactory outcomes. It is beyond cognizance, especially for a region where all resources should be highly aligned and optimized, that the link between academia and industry isn't perfectly aligned. Capital formation is the oxygen of entrepreneurship but a relevantly trained, and eager work force is the fuel. The communities that understand and demand the alignment of skills supply and skills demand have emerged as the entrepreneurial and technology hubs of this country."
"I applaud Dr. Bashaw's leadership as Dean of the ATU Business College by inviting nGage Labs into the discussion regarding curriculum, tools, and employable skills," Ford continues. "It was clear in the discussions that ATU is focused on successful outcomes for their students and sincerely committed to ensuring graduates can acquire knowledge based jobs by tuning their skills to the frequency of industry."
Ford concludes, "We can't wait to get these young people in our Analytics Innovation Center and expose them to business' accelerating needs to understand, visualize, and action the vast arrays of first party data they manage through the interactions of their customers and their mobile devices."
nGage Labs' CTO, Kyle Hollaway, has oversight of this unique educational program. The program will culminate with an Intern led project presentation and review with the nGage Labs VP of Innovation, Chief Technology Officer, and Chief Executive Officer.
"The nGage Labs Summer Internship Program offers an excellent opportunity for our business data analytics students to be exposed to the real-world challenges of national brands in analyzing, rationalizing, and visualizing their business data. We are gratified that nGage Labs, an exciting emerging-growth technology company, partnered with us in the evolution of our program and seeks the skills the students in our Business Data Analytics program possess," said Dr. Ed Bashaw, Dean, Arkansas Tech University College of Business.

About Arkansas Tech University
Founded in 1909, Arkansas Tech University is rich in history and is now one of the fastest growing universities in the state with an enrollment of approximately 12,000 students. ATU provides a campus small enough for individual attention, yet large enough for a quality education and boasts one of the highest graduation rates in the state.
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
