German industrial major Siemens will enable its employees to upskill and reskill by deploying Wingspan, the digital learning and talent transformation platform developed by Infosys.
Under the contract between Siemens and the Bengaluru-based information technology services company, the cloud-based, artificial intelligence-powered platform, named My Learning World at Siemens, will create a personalised interface for each employee and help them to track their progress. It aims to benefit 3,85,000 employees across 200 countries.
“Digitalisation is at the core of our strategy for the future... Infosys can support us to further improve our employee’s growth journey with My Learning World. This is an important partnership for Siemens,” Thomas Leubner, chief learning officer at Siemens, said.
To maintain and extend market leadership, technologies such artificial intelligence, internet of things, automation, cybersecurity and additive manufacturing are critical, Siemens said in a statement.
The platform will be a single-entry point to access learning content across multiple sources (internal and external) and help make the existing systems better, the company said.
“To survive the impact of digital disruption and to navigate these digital times, it is imperative for enterprises to ensure effective talent development,” Pravin Rao, chief operating officer, Infosys, said.
In February, San Francisco-based customer relationship management solutions provider Salesforce entered into an agreement with the National Skill Development Corporation. Under the pact, Salesforce said it would share its online training programme Trailhead with NSDC to help with the latter’s skill development and capacity building initiatives.
In December last year, IT services firm Wipro partnered with IT industry lobby NASSCOM to reskill around 10,000 engineering students under the latter's Future Skills platform.
