Galvanize has formed a partnership with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) in order to train DLA personnel in data analytics and data science in support of DLA’s digital business transformation to become a more data-literate organization.
With about 26,000 civilian and military employees around the globe, DLA’s partnership with Galvanize signals an acknowledgement of the need to stay at the forefront of data analytics usage and deployment by increasing the technical skills and capabilities of its workforce. Through its objective-based education methods and world-class instructors in data analytics and data science, Galvanize will support the technical training and upskilling of DLA personnel over the next year.
“From manufacturing to distribution, DLA is at the forefront of an increasingly data-driven global logistics landscape,” said Bill Blackstone, Executive Vice President of Operations at Galvanize. “We are proud to be a partner in maximizing the impact and efficiency of their mission to deliver quality and proactive global logistics to service members around the world.”
In addition to its work with DLA, Galvanize is already a leading upskilling technology training resource for active duty U.S. military personnel. In the summer of 2021, the Defense Department awarded Galvanize a Phase III Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract, and the company has already graduated hundreds of active duty service members through its coding and data science bootcamps.
