Partnership expands Profusion’s Data Academy into data visualisation and Business Intelligence
London, UK; January 2022: Leading data science company Profusion has partnered with Sisense, the leading AI-driven platform for infusing analytics everywhere, to offer a range of data and digital skills training.
The programmes, which cover UX Dashboard Design and Sisense BloX, aim to teach professionals the techniques they need to get the most out of data dashboards. This includes learning how to build and customise data dashboards for quick and accurate visualisation and analysis, build customised data widgets and define the analytics of user personas.
Profusion will offer these courses online to professionals across the world. The partnership extends Profusion’s long standing collaboration with Sisense, now as their Global Training Partner, and also marks a significant expansion of Profusion’s Data Academy.
The Academy is one of the UK’s first academic and business training schools which aims to both improve representation in data science and close the skills gap in the UK by teaching professionals at every level a range of data and digital skills. Profusion intends to expand its partnership with Sisense further in the next few months to offer Linux support training and end user training.
The partnership follows the recent launch of the Academy’s Data for Leaders course which teaches C-Suite and Heads Of Departments how to get the best out of data talent in their organisation by helping them to ask the right questions and judge the impact of data initiatives. It aims to significantly improve data literacy of business leaders. According to Profusion’s own extensive research into this issue – only 34% of senior leaders in the UK have an adequate level of data literacy.
Natalie Cramp, CEO of Profusion, said: “There is huge demand from professionals at every level for data training. They realise that to be the best at their jobs now and in the future they need to get to grips with the data revolution by learning new skills. Being able to understand and build data dashboards is such an important ability. It enables businesses to gain profound insights into their operations and extract maximum value from their data. It is a significant tool in data storytelling, which is critical to harnessing value from data across a business. We’re delighted to work with Sisense to expand our academy to cover these critical skills.”
Adva Almog-Dadush, Training Program Manager at Sisense said: “Choosing Profusion was an easy decision for us, they’ve been our client for 5 years, and have been instrumental to our implementation and onboarding process, as well as our partner for more than 3 years now.
“This new partnership is a testament to their knowledge of the platform, and having a Global Training Partner will drastically improve Sisense virtual course cadence around the globe, as well as enable smaller learning groups – this powers our customers to make the absolute best of their learning with Profusion Data Academy.”
The course will enable participants to practice in a hands-on, interactive way how to define the analytics user persona and plan data visualizations and interaction to support and improve their own dashboards. Upon completion of each course, participants will receive certification from Sisense, noting they’ve mastered improving dashboard stickiness and driving adoption.
