In Malaysia, the number of IT graduates produced each year, which numbers about 30,000, is not enough to cater to the growth of the industry, according to the country’s National ICT (Information and Communications Technology) Association (PIKOM) [1]. The Association also believes that the current workforce requires upgrading and upscaling.

Cloudera’s Senior Director of Marketing for APAC, Daniel Ng said: “A rapidly evolving data landscape is giving rise to a strong demand for skilled professionals that are able to deploy and manage big data initiatives on the Apache Hadoop data platform. CAP is one of the ways that Cloudera is leading the way in putting more data-skilled talents into the workforce.”

“The CAP program not only equips students with valuable skillsets, but it also benefits public and private sector organizations as they can harness these data talents to drive innovation and gain competitive advantage. We are currently also working with partners across industries to form an ecosystem to groom more data professionals. More will be announced regarding this initiative in the coming weeks,” added Ng.

Ir Dr. Karl Ng, Director of Innovation Capital at Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) said: “Data professionals are very much in demand right now and they are in short supply. Malaysia is poised to become one of South East Asia’s leading BDA hubs and with Cloudera’s CAP program, we hope to close the talent gap as well as spread the awareness on the need for more data professionals including data scientists.”

Through the CAP programme, Cloudera provides partner institutions with a complete, free, industry-standard Hadoop curriculum that can be incorporated into computer science and business analytics courses.

UTAR is the first university in Malaysia to join the CAP program, which already counts over 100 academic institutions across the globe as members.

How does  Cloudera CAP work?

Through the CAP programme, Cloudera provides partner institutions with a complete, free, industry-standard Hadoop curriculum that can be incorporated into computer science and business analytics courses.

Teaching staff and students affiliated with CAP programme institutions can freely download a wide selection of Cloudera supplementary training material and receive discounts on all Cloudera Certification examinations.

Teaching staff also qualify for deep discounts on Cloudera University professional training delivered by Cloudera’s team of expert Hadoop instructors, and benefit from up-to-date classroom tools, instructor forums, dedicated programme support, and the world’s largest Hadoop knowledgebase.

Cloudera Education Software License Programme

Accredited, non-profit academic institutions can also take advantage of the more robust features of Cloudera’s software suite through a special University License.

CAP members have free access to Cloudera Enterprise: Data Hub Edition for 12 months to support data-intensive testing, development, and research. In conjunction with Cloudera’s industry-leading open-source platform, the University License provides CAP participants with the tools needed to achieve major breakthroughs in big data.

Foundation for CAP Program Curriculum: Cloudera University

The CAP programme curriculum was developed from the industry-leading training courses and technical certifications offered by Cloudera University, which focuses on Apache Hadoop, its ecosystem and data science. Cloudera University offers the world’s most complete and comprehensive Hadoop education programs for data professionals.
