DBS launches in-house Future Tech Academy
DBS announced today the launch of an in-house digital training institute to keep its close to 5,000-strong technology workforce updated with the most cutting-edge skills for the future.
Dubbed the DBS Future Tech Academy, the training institute will cover three technology disciplines for a start – (1) Site Reliability Engineering or SRE; (2) Data Processing and Analytics; and (3) Application Security. DBS will evaluate more programmes to cover other key technology domains in the next twelve months.
The DBS Future Tech Academy aims to build a learning ecosystem that incorporates a blended pedagogical approach tapping on both external experts as well as internally developed content and certifications. DBS believes that this will enable employees to acquire the latest technology skillsets from external industry experts and immediately apply their new skills to relevant technology projects being rolled out by the bank.
