One of the most important value-add solutions that Mellanox provides to its customers and partners is Educational Services. We offer a variety of learning methods to our partners, customers and other technology leaders.
One of the most successful learning platforms to our customers is our open enrollment courses. These 3-4 day instructor led courses are available worldwide: the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Israel, Australia, China and in the US: New York, California, Massachusetts and Washington. Soon we will offer an “After hours, virtual format”, meaning the students will gain the benefit of a blended (remote instructor led along with online training) learning format, allowing participants flexibility to take the course and still not miss many working hours.
The world of information technologies is chaotic. Technologists are expected to learn, keep pace and implement ever-evolving technologies. As a technology manager, you will face challenges related to bridging the knowledge gap on your team. Your education and training solution should address these needs:
- Always available: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, On Demand availability
- A variety of education options including online, face to face instructor- led and remote training

With these challenges in mind, Mellanox has customized its Global Education Services to provide more resources for your team. All training includes:
- Learners’ support channels, such as the “Ask the Expert” feature
- Knowledge standardization and verification

- Ability to track and examine learner achievements

In our day to day tech lives, it is our goal to improve our team’s performance using the right combination of resources and budget, while showing the best return on investment (ROI). This can come at the cost of skipping technical training.
It’s a fact. We are all stressed. We face unreasonable deadlines, prioritization, immediate to-do tasks and budget shortfalls. While trying to survive in this chaotic environment, I hear some customers saying: “I don’t have the time to allow my tech team to get technical training. Even if I have the time, I just can’t afford it.”
Let’s think again.Market standards show that the average number of days a technology employee works each year is 207. The average number of days dedicated to maintenance of ongoing projects is 170 (82.5%). The rest (37 days) of the time is dedicated to “first-time operations and exploration”.
Studies have shown that every day spent in training reduces the ongoing maintenance time by 4% (per participant) on average. This means that from 170 working days, you could save at least 6 days per year per employee if you just provide them just 1 training day. Each training day reduces first-time operations by 20% on average. From 37 working days, you could save at least 7 more days.
