1 EMC ACADEMIC ALLIANCE Preparing the next generation of IT professionals for careers in virtualized and cloud environments.
2 EMC ACADEMIC ALLIANCE EMC collaborates with colleges and universities worldwide to help prepare students for successful careers in a transforming IT industry. The EMC Academic Alliance program offers unique open curriculum-based education on technology topic such as cloud computing, big data analytics, information storage and management, and backup recovery systems and architecture. All courseware and faculty training are offered at no cost to qualifying higher education institutions. The courses focus on technology concepts and principles applicable to any vendor environment, enabling students to develop highly marketable knowledge and skills required in today s evolving IT industry. WHAT DOES THE IT LANDSCAPE LOOK LIKE FOR GRADUATES? The IT industry is being redefined. The digital age now features what IDC terms the 3rd Platform 1, built on a foundation of mobility, cloud, big data, and social. Today s data centers, built largely on 2nd Platform technologies, represent the physical foundation underneath the cloud, and are thus a crucial component of the 3rd Platform. Graduates starting careers in IT will need to be knowledgeable on the technologies of both platforms in order to help find new ways to innovate around existing infrastructure, and dive into a future of 3rd Platform computing. 3RD PLATFORM BILLIONS OF USERS Mobile Big Data Social CLOUD MILLIONS OF APPS HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF USERS 2ND PLATFORM LAN/Internet Client/Server DISTRIBUTED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF APPS 1ST PLATFORM MILLIONS OF USERS Mainframe, Mini Computer MAINFRAMES THOUSANDS OF APPS The digital universe, populated by billions of mobile, cloud-enabled users and devices, is predicted to grow 10x (from 4.4 to 44 zettabytes) in the next seven years Source: IDC Predictions 2014: Battles for Dominance and Survival on the 3rd Platform, Dec By: Frank Gens, IDC Predictions 2014 Team 2 Source: EMC Digital Universe with Research and Analysis by IDC, The Digital Universe of Opportunities: Rich Data and the Increasing Value of the Internet of Things, April 2014.
3 Contributing to this exponential growth is the Internet of Things (IoT). Through the IoT, computerization has literally moved to billions of Internet-enabled objects: from clothing to home security systems, community surveillance systems, and in all manner of consumer items through sensors, intelligent systems, and applications. Organizations of all types are being presented with greater opportunities to analyze new streams of data, gain more value from the data they already have, realize efficiencies, and obtain a whole new level of insight into their customers and markets. In addition, information storage and management has evolved dramatically to be cheaper, faster, more secure, and with more capacity than ever imagined. Data centers are increasingly becoming software-defined enterprises featuring virtualized architectures where resources are abstracted, pooled, and automated. This shift from traditional to software-defined data center will provide IT departments with enormous potential to deliver IT as a customizable, on-demand service. WHAT NEW ROLES WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR GRADUATES? Tomorrow s IT organization an IT as a Service organization will present many challenges and opportunities. IT professionals will be responsible for more data than ever, derived from new sources and in new formats. They will need to not only build and maintain technology assets, but also orchestrate services to enable the business to consume them effectively in its operations, decisions, and innovations. This holds profound implications for both traditional and emerging IT roles and skills. Image courtesy: IDC 3
4 Many emerging roles, such as cloud architect and cloud capacity planner, require a skill set focused on knowledge that spans across traditional IT roles as well as a focus on service. TRADITIONAL VERSUS NEW ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES IN IT To learn more on new roles and responsibilities go to Ensuring that skills keep pace with the rate of IT innovation will challenge organizations in the coming years. To be successful in this changing landscape, IT leaders must focus on both developing and sourcing new skills for emerging roles, and on key infrastructure skills such as virtualization, where short supply hinders progress. Graduates that are well versed in both Second and Third Platform technologies will have a distinct advantage in the job market. HOW CAN ACADEMIA AND EMC PARTNER TO HELP PREPARE STUDENTS? Through the Academic Alliance program, EMC provides college and university faculties with curriculum options designed to fit a variety of IT-related programs. Courses on information storage and management, cloud, and data science are specifically targeted to enable students to develop highly marketable knowledge and skills to address the IT industry s top concerns. 4
