TIBCO, Singapore Polytechnic collaborate to boost smart manufacturing in Singapore

TIBCO Software and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) are extending their collaboration to expand data analytics capabilities and knowledge for adult learners in Singapore. The latest collaboration is in support of Singapore’s quest to be a smart manufacturing hub. As part of the second phase of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), SP, TIBCO, and its partner, iZeno, will jointly engage adult learners through industrial practice, internships, and other practice-based training.

In October 2018, SP will collaborate with TIBCO to launch a new Continuing Education (CET) course in Data Analytics for Industrial Applications. The new 16-hour course is targeted at working adults and will equip learners with the necessary skills to analyse industrial data in the fields of manufacturing, operations, facilities, maintenance and logistics.

Applicants can also apply for relevant government subsidies to take up the course. The latest CET course is aligned with the Skills Framework for ICT, which encourages working adults to pick up new digital skills, especially in the areas of data analytics or robotics in order to stay relevant in the future economy.

“In Singapore’s quest for smart manufacturing, talent will always be a challenge. Through this collaboration we can offer our expertise in helping address the data skills gap in the region. It is important that we augment the relevant capabilities and skillsets of people through our technology and innovative solutions our products,” said Melissa Ries, general manager, Asia Pacific and Japan, TIBCO.

The manufacturing industry plays a crucial role in supporting Singapore’s economy where it was the key growth driver in the first quarter of this year, according to Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI).

“Close collaboration between higher education institutions and the technology industry is crucial in supporting adult learners in their skills development and career progression. We are excited about partnering with TIBCO to support the national drive of smart manufacturing,” said Jason Lin, co-founder and director, iZeno.

This is the second phase of TIBCO’s collaboration with Singapore Polytechnic. In January this year, TIBCO announced an MOU to provide students from the Computer Engineering, Engineering with Business, and Engineering Systems diploma courses with relevant data analytics skillsets in the areas of Industry 4.0 and advanced manufacturing.
