TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in enterprise data, empowers its customers to connect, unify, and confidently predict business outcomes, solving the world’s most complex data-driven challenges. Today, TIBCO announced a three-year collaboration with Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) that will support the institute's Data Science diploma course and ensure that professionals entering the workforce have advanced analytics skills.

"TIBCO is committed to helping close the data management skills gap and drive economic development in the region through our Academic Alliance Program,” said Nick Lim, general manager, APJ, TIBCO. “This partnership with NP supports its mission of moulding the next generation of tech professionals, and allows us to create opportunities for students to learn advanced data analytics capabilities with our industry-leading solutions."

TIBCO® Data Science, TIBCO Spotfire®, TIBCO® Streaming, and other solutions will first be included in modules of NP’s Diploma in Data Science. Students will also have an opportunity to apply classroom learning to internships at partner organisations, helping gain industry experience. In their final year, students will have the opportunity to apply their technical knowledge through the polytechnic's Industry Kickstart Programme and Capstone Project. After the first year, the collaboration will expand to include TIBCO solutions in other relevant programmes. The partnership aims to train 200 NP students per year for the next three years.

The demand for data analytics professionals is expected to rise, with the data analytics industry identified as an important growth sector in Singapore. Studies indicate that it contributes at least S$1 billion (US$730 million) to Singapore’s economy each year1.

"Data analytics capabilities are critical in developing agile, customer-focused digital enterprises. We believe that it is important to pursue industry partnerships to enhance our diploma programmes and empower students to meet the evolving demands of the workforce. We are therefore delighted to work with TIBCO, which contributes its capabilities in developing data science and machine learning platforms,” said Patrice Choong, director, School of InfoComm Technology, NP.

TIBCO partners with post-secondary institutions across the Asia Pacific region, including Nanyang Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic, the Institute of Technical Education in Singapore, and the Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) in Indonesia.
