3 Reasons Why Udacity Is the Leader in Digital Talent Transformation

Recently Udacity was recognized as a leader by IDC for their IT Training Assessment Report (you can also read our blog post on it here). It was an honor for our leadership to be recognized by independent analysts and we saw this as further proof that Udacity is the digital talent transformation leader. We think the report is proof enough (just look at where we are) but in case you need a little more validation, here are three (other) reasons why Udacity is the leader in digital talent transformation. 

Udacity Has Over a Decade of Digital Talent Transformation Experience

It all began in 2011 when Stanford instructors Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig offered their “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” course online and over 160,000 students in more than 190 countries enrolled. Since then Udacity has helped hundreds of thousands learners across the globe grow in digital skills and occupations like data science, programming, cloud, and cybersecurity.

Udacity also partners with companies to create the job-ready talent they need for digital transformation. Only Udacity addresses dynamic workforce challenges and helps eliminate talent gaps. With personnel shortages up to 3x higher than a decade ago, talent transformation creates opportunities for heightened productivity and retention, and who better to partner with than the leader in digital talent transformation?

Udacity Is More Than an L&D Program 

Having a Learning and Development (L&D) program is not enough for a company to meet their digital talent transformation goals. According to research from the Talent Transformation Global Impact Report, 80% of enterprise companies with L&D programs considered them to be moderately successful, but 55% of employees surveyed reported being only somewhat satisfied, or not satisfied at all, with their employer’s L&D programs. 

If employees are not satisfied with their L&D offerings, then it’s time to rethink the digital talent strategy. For companies invested in digital talent, they need a digital talent partner that will work with them through the transformation journey, every step of the way.  From our workshop where we help companies assess their talent and put together a strategy to our easily deployable and scalable platform, our proven playbook has helped enterprises achieve targeted results that increase retention and productivity.
