ABOUT THE DATA ACADEMY

Continuous Learning is in our DNA. We have recognized the need for well-trained employees and designed our own trainee program at a time when there were no degree programs in Big Data and AI. We have applied this developed concept across the company and have continuously adapted it, so that today we have training courses and specific development paths for each department. A number of subject-focused guilds have also formed in order to keep one another up to date on the latest techniques and technologies. Anyone can have a hand in shaping digital transformation – The Data Academy is our approach to sharing the necessary knowledge and making it accessible.
