What’s new with Global Knowledge? Even more knowledge it seems.
Word just reached us that the world’s leading learning services and professional development solutions provider will buy DevelopMentor.
With offices in Los Angeles, California and Swindon, England, “DevelopMentor has long provided learning solutions for professionals involved in the software projects life cycle,” the firm tells us in an emailed announcement. “With a team of expert instructors around the world, DevelopMentor expands the Global Knowledge application development training portfolio to more than 300 courses and bolsters the company’s asynchronous learning delivery capabilities.”
Global Knowledge’s application development portfolio of courses and learning services offer individuals, teams, or entire organizations opportunities to learn or refine skills in programming languages including Python, Swift, and Java, as well as how to operate across platforms and methodologies.
“The developer education market is an important growth area for our company, and this investment supports that objective,” said Brian Branson, CEO of Global Knowledge. “We’re very pleased to add DevelopMentor to the Global Knowledge team. With this expansion, we will have a broader set of software and application development learning solutions to provide to our customers, as well as greater depth of expertise.”
Part of the reason for the acquisition is the surging adoption of mobile and cloud operating systems.
“We understand that organizations across industries face increasing challenges when recruiting and fostering talent for developer skills,” said Michael Fox, the firm’s SVP of Enterprise Solutions. “The addition of the DevelopMentor course portfolio will enable us to offer our customers the broadest, most modern skills development capability for their growing developer teams.”
