About the Data Academy 


Continuous Learning is in our DNA. We recognised the need for well-trained employees and designed our own trainee programme at a time when there was no such thing as a "trainee programme" or a degree in the field of Big Data and AI. We have applied this concept throughout the company and continually adapted it - today we have training and special development paths for each department. In addition, professionally focused guilds have been formed to teach each other the latest technology.

Everyone can shape the digital transformation - The Data Academy is our approach to sharing the necessary knowledge and making it accessible.
