GP Strategies Partners With Degreed to Bring Efficient, Scalable Content Curation to Corporate Learning

COLUMBIA, Md., Jan. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation and Degreed, the fast-growing technology company that has pioneered an engaging, beautiful and intuitive way to empower and recognize all forms of professional and lifelong learning, have partnered to offer Degreed's award-winning learning platform to GP Strategies' clients in the US federal government as well as commercial enterprise clients globally. With access to the Degreed platform, clients can support employees' learning by enabling them to discover, curate, share, track and value all kinds of learning—from anywhere—all in one place.

Informal and self-directed learning are essential parts of people's development, but until now, have been difficult for corporate learning and development (L&D) teams to manage. Degreed's innovative platform provides the structure and tools that today's L&D leaders need to organize, curate, target and track all forms of learning, wherever they happen, from a single, easy-to-use platform. As a result, Degreed enables L&D teams to spend less time managing learning and more time empowering learners.

Don Duquette, Executive Vice President for GP Strategies, stated, "Integrating Degreed's platform with our clients' Learning Management Systems and paid, external vendor content, along with the internet's vast ecosystem of free and open informal learning resources, is a critical component of our customers' learning strategies. By partnering with Degreed, GP Strategies and its clients can more efficiently deliver engaging, collaborative and personalized learning experiences to every employee."

"Many of our clients are already leveraging Degreed to target learning experiences at people's job roles and career goals, as well as corporate strategies and initiatives," said David Blake, chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Degreed. "We are thrilled to work with GP Strategies, which has a presence in 80 countries, in order to connect their clients with the solutions that can enhance corporate learning and elevate the expertise of their entire workforces."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
