Announcement Came at Confluence 2016 Widely-attended by Industry and Academia
TalentSprint announced the launch of SuperCampus 2.0 during Confluence 2016, the second edition of its biannual program that brings together leaders from IT industry and academia. Confluence is an interaction forum for stakeholders who create and consume the latest engineering talent across the country. The theme of Confluence 2016 – ‘Companies Seek Talent++. Are You Ready?’ has attracted a large audience of both industry and academic leaders leading to a vigorous discussion on the future of talent development and acquisition.
According to Dr. Santanu Paul, TalentSprint’s Co-Founder and CEO, “It is an oft-repeated complaint that technology companies do not find the skills they are looking for when they visit college campuses. SuperCampus 2.0 has been designed, with input from leading IT companies, to help all colleges and their students achieve the optimal skill threshold expected by the IT sector. It is a 24×7 cloud platform that provides round-the-year engagement with assessment-driven, personalized learning for each and every student, so that no college is left behind with a student skill deficit.”
TalentSprint’s earlier college programs involved faculty visiting campuses to train students within classrooms. SuperCampus 2.0 is an upgrade based on the principles of skills learning anywhere and on any device. The platform incorporates a layer of artificial intelligence that can recognize every student as an individual learner with unique learning gaps, and customize the learning pathways for each and every one of them.
Speakers and dignitaries at Confluence 2016 included the August presence of Dr. Jaideep Ganguly (Amazon), Suman Reddy (Pegasystems), R. Vasudevan (TCS), Hari Raja (Cognizant), Kris SV (Pegasystems), K.V. Vishnu Raju (Vishnu Educational Society), and P. Balaji (Vasavi College of Engineering). The event was attended by management representatives from more than 75 universities and colleges.
TalentSprint has recently tied up with Pegasystems, a global leader in CRM and BPM software for creating a pool of certified talent for working on their platforms. University Academic Program (UAP) certified professionals will command a premium salary of thirty percent. TalentSprint has exclusively partnered with Pegasystems to create an ecosystem for building capacity of certified students from colleges across India for recruitment.
