TIBCO and Nanyang Polytechnic Empower SMEs for Digital Transformation



18 August, 2017


TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, API management, and analytics, today announced it will collaborate with Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) to develop data analytics capabilities in Singapore, and promote digital transformation among local Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Recognizing that digitalization is key to increasing productivity and competitiveness, the arrangement aims to create new business and growth opportunities for local organizations through the development and nurturing of data analytics skills for the younger generation. By providing students with the right data analytics skills, technology, and experience to excel in this evolving job landscape, the collaboration between TIBCO and NYP aims to address the data skills shortage faced by local SMEs today.

As part of the MOU, NYP and TIBCO will jointly engage participants through guest lectures, competitions, workshops, master classes, and other training. The arrangement is designed to encourage continuous learning and develop data analytics competencies.

Students from NYP’s School of Business Management will also have opportunities to attend structured training programs and mentorships conducted by TIBCO through its local or international office. To promote knowledge transfer, there may be opportunities for NYP staff to be attached to TIBCO for work stints.

“Through this collaboration, our students will benefit immensely from being exposed to the latest digital technologies and will gain additional skills in data analytics that will enable them to excel in this rapidly-changing economy,” said Chuu Yi Loh, Director of School of Business Management at Nanyang Polytechnic. “We are pleased that TIBCO is closely aligned with us in achieving our goals of ensuring our students are well equipped with strong data analytics skills and are ready for the evolving workforce in this digital age.”

“Digital transformation is no longer an option; it’s a necessity. It is vital for our workforce to be in tune with the rapidly evolving skill sets required for businesses. As a leader fueling digital businesses, it is important to help train and empower a new generation in the data analytics space,” said Nicolas Betbeder-Matibet, regional vice president, ASEAN and Greater China, TIBCO. “NYP has already incorporated multiple opportunities for its students to gain hands-on experience in running digital businesses using data analytics. Together with NYP, we are committed to nurturing the new generation to leverage technology and prepare for successful careers ahead.”

Furthermore, the partnership is in line with the government’s initiatives to help SMEs flourish through its SME Go Digital program. With digital transformation being a necessity in today’s business landscape, TIBCO and NYP will train SMEs on laying the foundation for their digital business through TIBCO’s Connected Intelligence approach. This includes hands-on workshops using TIBCO solutions, case studies, and events aimed to educate and empower SMEs to transform their data into action, to spot and seize opportunities, to differentiate and lead.

This collaboration follows the recent announcement of Singapore’s first unmanned store that utilizes data and video analytics, which will also double as a training facility for NYP's School of Business management students.
