Today Cloudera announced a new Cloudera Academic Partnership program, in which participating universities worldwide get access to curriculum, training, certification, and software.
As noted in the press release, the global demand for people with Apache Hadoop and data science skills is dwarfing all supply. We consider it an important mission to help accredited universities meet that demand, by equipping them with the content and training they need to educate students in the Hadoop arts.
Furthermore, we are cognizant of the fact that many academic research labs are in need of tools to help deploy, manage, and extend Hadoop clusters. For that reason, CAP members get free access to Cloudera Manager Enterprise Edition for 12 months to support data-intensive testing, development, and research.
It’s a giant Win/Win!
You can learn more about CAP by attending our free, live webinar on Thursday, May 16 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Cloudera’s Director of Education Programs will will present an overview of the program’s objectives, partner benefits, and how your college or university can become a member, followed by a Q&A.
