We get called quite a bit to do training. Many clients have internal resources that have come and gone and to get everyone on the same page, they hire us to do customized training.
This client is a distributor and retailer of fashion, luxury, and sports eyewear.
Our client had DataStage TX software already installed but resources were not familiar with all that the software could do.
We developed a customized training program based on requirements from the client. We provided a combination of classroom and side-by-side training to 3-5 resources. The training included materials that the client could use for reference after the course. All of the exercises covered analysis, mapping, testing, and implementation in real-life integration scenarios as defined by the client.
