IT professionals who were once the cream of our country are being shown door by their companies due to their out-dated skills. As per recent McKinsey & Company report, half the current IT workforce will be irrelevant over the next 3-4 years, if they fail to get upskilled. Although there are few training centers trying to enhance their skills, they fail to make them industry-ready as they are unable to provide pragmatic market-relevant training. It’s this severe shortage for skilled resources for their global Machine Leaning projects that thrust the parent organization of DataMites to commence a training institute for enhancing its students’ Data Science & Machine Learning skills in tune with their projects and source the best of them.
