New tech academy of Google and AirAsia will start from February

New tech academy of Google and AirAsia will start from February

AirAsia is one of the popular Southeast Asian airline companies. The digital disruption is on the rise and the future job security is threatened. To overcome the problem AirAsia has partnered with Google to start a tech academy that will help the employees reskill. RedBeat Ventures is part of AirAsia’s venture arm and it is all set to manage the first AirAsia Google Cloud Academy. The new tech academy will include various courses in software engineering, tech and infrastructure design, and digital marketing. All the courses that are offered in the academy will be certified by Google. Tim Synan, director of Google Cloud’s Southeast Asian region stated that the new deal will allow the participants to understand technologies better.

 The collaboration is working to improvise the skills of the AirAsia AllStars to give them all relevant expertise in the cloud technologies of Google. The new expertise will include smart analytics, Kubernetes, Cloud AI and much more. Google has actively partnered with AirAsia since 2018 and when a deal was signed to integrate Google’s ML abilities to improve AirAsia’s digital capabilities there was no confirmation about the training facility. The current employees will be given access to the academy from February and it will be made available to the public by the end of the year.
