Introducing: Learning with Microsoft!

To ensure the right offer for everyone in our international group of companies, we offer a wide range of digital training opportunities. This means you can learn flexibly, regardless of time or place - even from home. You’re not sure online training is right for you? Or perhaps you’re finding it difficult to choose the right learning partner from the many different courses on offer? To give you a better overview, here’s a quick introduction to our cooperation partners!

Meet Microsoft!

Microsoft Azure is the world’s leading provider of cloud solutions. The Azure Cloud drives online business and projects across large parts of the Bertelsmann Group, too. Just recently it was announced that our strategic partnership with Microsoft will be further intensified. As part of the Enterprise Skilling Initiative (ESI), Bertelsmann University is working with Microsoft to provide the necessary skills for the use of Azure. This cooperation was preceded by an earlier, very successful upskilling project between Arvato Systems and Microsoft. So our offer picks up on this with some new features.

This gives employees across the Group the opportunity to develop and expand their knowledge and skills in the use of Azure and other Microsoft technologies. A comprehensive training platform helps you to expand your knowledge and acquire qualifications to effectively use Microsoft applications in general, and Azure in particular, in your job, and thereby advance our Group’s digital transformation.

Jockel M.- Senior Program Manager at Arvato Systems: 'At Arvato Systems, we are rising to the challenge of developing skills and competencies in ources, as well as to increase our visibility as a Microsoft partner in the market and among our customers.The ESI bundles all qualifications for Microsoft into one overall program. So we no longer send employees to external, very costly training courses, but instead offer a free digital alternative. We have already managed to train more than 500 colleagues to date'.
