D2iQ releases Conductor to deliver interactive courses and training on actual Kubernetes

D2iQ | July 09, 2020

D2iQ, the leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud platforms that power smarter Day 2 operations, today announced the release of Conductor, a new interactive learning platform that enables enterprises to access hands-on cloud native courses and training. With Conductor, developers and operators can now learn Kubernetes on actual clusters right from their web browser, increasing the team's capability and maximizing resource utilization. According to a recent D2iQ-sponsored survey with Vanson Bourne, only 23% of organizations believe they have the talent required to successfully complete their cloud native journey. As enterprises move from legacy to cloud native applications, the demand for Kubernetes has significantly increased. However, once moving closer to production and Day 2 operations, they are met with the complexity involved in migrating to a complete Kubernetes environment while also struggling to keep pace with the skills required to maintain it. Conductor addresses the growing skill gap through hands-on courses and labs that are curated by CNCF-certified engineers and trainers and focused on Kubernetes and the entire cloud native lifecycle, including containerization, CI/CD, observability and security. Through the Conductor Admin interface, administrators can track learner proficiency and ensure training is completed before developers and operators are allowed to interact with the organization's production environment.
