Eidosmedia’s partnership with A Cloud Guru (formerly Linux Academy) has been crucial to ensuring the entire team of both new and existing employees is up to speed with evolving cloud technologies.

To better retain existing workers and attract new tech talent, Eidosmedia began investing in cloud skills development with A Cloud Guru in 2019.

The move both served to further modernize the organization and show employees (current and future) that the company values professional development — a prudent move given that 94% of employees (2019 Engagement Survey results) say they would stay at a company longer if it invested in skills development.

Getting certified

Many of those in the company’s deployment teams have followed ACG courses and obtained certification in areas such as GNU/Linux RedHat and AWS cloud specialties. One of the most appreciated features of the training is the ‘playground’ where trainees can try out new tools and resources in realistic environments.

A Cloud Guru also has resources for skills assessment - useful for mapping existing competences and identifying potential gaps which can be filled with the training available on the platform.
