Demo: PluralSight SaaS Platform For IT Training
There is nothing more important for an IT professional than staying up to date and knowledgeable around the latest technologies. But that constant learning can take a toll on one’s psyche and wallet. Salt Lake City-based SaaS company PluralSight has spent the past decade building an online platform where IT and business professionals can learn the latest in software and development.
PluralSight’s Sam Nichols demonstrated the software for CRNtv at the recent Big Data Summit in Boston. The platform offers more than 3,700 courses across three verticals (software development, IT and creative), accessible from any device.
’We flipped the learning ecosystem on its head,’ Nichols said.
Pluralsight offers plans specifically tailored to businesses, which include tutorials and webinars on everything from Microsoft SharePoint to Amazon Web Services. In August, the company unveiled a partnership with the White House’s TechHire Initiative – a program focused on matching Americans’ technical skill sets with the current job market. Pluralsight held a White House Demo Day.
Costs for enterprise and SMB training packages vary, but PluralSight offers free trials online.
