Altimetrik, a pure-play digital business company, announces the launch of the Digital Business Academy (DBA), a comprehensive program designed to enable enterprises to successfully mature as Digital Businesses with the help of the Digital Business Methodology. The Academy, tailored for all organizational levels, including the CXO leadership suite to engineering professionals, offers crucial talent enablement, guaranteeing efficient digital adoption across all business functions.
The company also intends to extend the DBA framework to students, equipping them with the necessary skills for digital business methodologies and develop digital talent right from the start. This involves diverse approaches, offering students real-time scenarios, data sets, and immersive environments to comprehend and transition into DBMs. Furthermore, Altimetrik plans to establish academic credits related to this domain and a comprehensive curriculum supported by coaches who will guide and mentor the students throughout the learning process.
At the core of this program is a unified solution focused on the Single Source of Truth (SSOT), the central enterprise data repository, providing a singular and comprehensive view of a business and its customers by leveraging AI and ML technologies. This offering aims to create digital practitioners at scale, commencing with learning, adoption, and internalization at the enterprise level. This initiative introduces a three-pronged approach: Assessing the Benchmark, Digital Talent Enablement, and Internalize & Evolve, facilitating a seamless transition into the digital era.
Organizations globally are facing significant challenges in bridging the digital skills divide. ManpowerGroup’s 2023 Talent Shortage Survey reveals that an unprecedented 77% of employers encountered difficulties in recruiting for positions, marking a 17-year peak. The most sought-after skills are in the fields of IT and data.
