Technology skills platform Pluralsight has announced a new Priorities tool for Pluralsight Skills, Cloud Labs to speed public cloud skills acquisition, and a new Delivery Module for Pluralsight Flow.

Priorities is intended to align skills development with business objectives.

Managers can specify the skills needed to achieve technology priorities, and then organise content and Skill IQ assessments into skill development plans.

Pluralsight provides a range of templates to save time while designing curricula so upskilling can begin sooner.

Analytics tools provide objective data on how skill levels are progressing.

Cloud Labs comprises hundreds of lab sessions to help develop skills for using major cloud providers including AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Cloud Labs are aligned to cloud certification paths, and combine Pluralsight's content with interactive learning.

“As enterprises embrace digital transformation initiatives and use cloud computing to deliver support and services to distributed workforces, there has never been a greater need for organisations to implement robust cloud skills development programs," said Google Cloud vice president of customer experience John Jester.

"Pluralsight is a valued partner for Google Cloud, and has fully integrated its labs experience with our Qwiklabs training platform, which empowers learners to gain practice in the real Google Cloud environment - no simulations.

"As we work together with Pluralsight to provide hands-on learning experiences for our customers, we can ensure their teams have the requisite skills to deliver new innovations."

Delivery Module for Pluralsight Flow is designed to help engineering teams overcome roadblocks in the software development process, and to deliver greater value more quickly.

It is integrated with Jira for ticket-based analytics, providing insights into where time is being spent and where there are breakdowns in the workflow.

The ticket log report allows scrum masters, team leaders, and team members to spot tickets that need the most attention.

The retrospective report dashboard aggregates various metrics to help identify opportunities to improve processes, and to compare the distribution of work against expectations.

“Engineering teams need increased data and visibility into their workflows. Pluralsight Flow delivers these necessary insights, allowing engineers and leaders to see data on the constraints facing their teams and identify how they can best address them. Conversations and efforts can focus on where it matters most, helping teams make changes with real impact,” said Pluralsight Flow executive vice president Kathryn Murphy.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
