Yuan Ze U New Analytics Center to Support Industry 4.0 Drive

Collaboration continues TIBCO Software’s momentum to make analytics skills mainstream.

TIBCO Software is making good on its promise to demystify analytics and make related skills mainstream.

The latest move is the launch of the YZU-TIBCO Analytics Center, which strengthens the company’s collaboration with Taiwan’s Yuan Ze University.

“With the launch of the new YZU–TIBCO Analytics Center as well as the Data Visualization and Analytics for Business Intelligence course, we believe our collaboration with TIBCO will reinforce the relevance of our education program for working adults, providing them with the critical digital skills needed in today's digital world,” said Su, Chuan-Jun, professor and director, Smart Production and Innovative Management Research Center, Yuan Ze University.

The new Analytics Center is targeted at preparing working adults for data analytics in IoT applications. Using a visual approach, it aims to equip them with crucial data analysis skills essential for their careers and support Taiwan's Industry 4.0 vision.

The Center marks the second phase of the collaboration between the university and TIBCO Software. The Center will also include a Data Visualization and Analytics for Business Intelligence program, which is a three-day course on how to turn data into insightful information.

“As the integration of intelligent technologies evolves in Industry 4.0, Taiwan is poised to become one of the key global players. Companies continue to prioritize advanced analytics in their investment decisions, making it important for them to have a highly educated, high-tech workforce to fully reap the benefits and contribute to the nation's economy,” said Su added.

Specifically, Yuan Ze University will use TIBCO Spotfire in its teaching and demonstration efforts, educating working adults on how to use connected intelligence insights for business decisions.

"Participants will be able to get hands-on learning through this special course. With Yuan Ze University, we believe that augmenting students' capabilities and skillsets with a combination of leading intelligent, connected solutions will be a powerful contribution to the nation's developing digital ecosystem," said Erich Gerber, senior vice president, APJ and EMEA, TIBCO Software.

The announcement continues a slew of collaborations with universities across the Asia Pacific region. More recently, TIBCO inked similar deals with Singapore’s Nanyang Poly and SMU among others.
