DBS uses Amazon Web Services to deepen cloud software talent pool

Programme equips DBS employees with future-ready cloud engineering skills to rapidly deliver new products and solutions.

DBS Bank will be collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to further strengthen its technology talent pool by training them in cloud engineering skills. This will enable its employees to rapidly innovate, build and deliver new products to customers.

The collaboration is in alignment with the Singapore government’s Smart Nation Agenda. DBS announced in August that it would invest S$20 million over the next five years to transform employees into a digital workforce, enabling them to thrive in the digital economy and adapt to the future of work. 

DBS has been an early adopter of cloud among financial services companies, and intends to move up to 50% of its compute workload to the cloud by 2018 to support its digital transformation strategy.

In the new programme, AWS technical experts will work alongside DBS employees on selected technology innovation projects covering the areas of security, artificial intelligence and data analytics.

DBS employees can further enhance their technology skills through a wide variety of specialised and professional courses in the AWS technical learning curriculum. There will be tech-talks on the latest technology innovations, featuring AWS subject matter experts.

The curriculum, with private classes customised for DBS, also features hands-on skills enablement workshops in AWS’ training labs. DBS will also work with AWS to continue its hiring focus through innovative hiring programmes to attract top IT talent.

Lee Yan Hong, DBS’ Group Head of HR, said, “We’re building the next generation of digital bankers to enable our digital transformation. An agile and innovative workforce will also make Singapore’s Smart Nation ambition a reality and strengthen Singapore’s talent pool.”
