SAS Academy for Data Science nominated for Computable Awards

ICT magazine Computable has nominated SAS and Procam for the 2018 Dutch Computable Awards, for the category of ICT trainer of the year. 
The SAS Academy for Data Science is one of the ten courses chosen by the general jury of the Computable Awards to compete for this prestigious IT Award.

The cooperation between SAS and Procam in The Netherlands is aimed at reducing the lack of data scientists, so that organizations can get more value from their data. 
SAS, leader in analytics, has been active in data science for more than 40 years and trains analytical talent through the Academy for Data Science. Procam is a specialist in finding highly educated young IT talent and coach them in shaping their career.

"Everyone talks about the lack of data scientists," says Pascal Lubbe, Education Director at SAS. "With this cooperation, we offer trainees a complete program that enables them to work with the latest tools from SAS, and also gives them the best guidance to find a job so that their career in Data Science gets off to a flying start.”

The program distinguishes itself through the combination of knowledge development in the field of analytics, machine learning and big data management, while also paying attention to essential communication skills for analysts and data scientists. 
In addition to training professionals, SAS together with Procam help young IT talent start and shape their career. Procam connects the candidates to employers where they can work during their training period. As a result, the lessons learned can be immediately put into practice.

The Dutch Computable Awards nomination is a great honour and a recognition of the growing need for data scientists.
