Gebeya, O’Reilly partner to upskill Africans with tech skills


Gebeya has partnered with O’Reilly to upskill thousands of Africans with technology skills. The partnership, which was announced this week will see Gebeya make O’Reilly’s extensive learning resources available to more yound people across the continent.

For over 40 years, O’Reilly has delivered highly topical and comprehensive technology and business learning solutions to millions of users. The company boasts a vast library of over 5,000+ expert-developed courses covering a wide range of topics from data analytics and infrastructure architecture to artificial intelligence and cloud services.

With content from some of the biggest publishers in the world, such as Harvard Business Review, Pearson, Wiley, and more, O’Reilly’s content provides invaluable resources for individuals seeking to enhance their skills and expertise in today’s rapidly evolving tech landscape.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Gebeya on such an inspiring initiative to upskill thousands of Africans on technology skills and equip them with the knowledge needed for the opportunities available on Talent Clouds,” said Alexia Pedersen, Senior Vice President International at O’Reilly.

“We are proud to have been selected for our depth of content and variety of formats such as books, videos, sandboxes, and live online courses, which can be accessed from any location and connect learners with our unique network of experts and innovators.” Alexia added.

Gebeya’s scalable Talent Cloud technology, an AI-powered and configurable SaaS platform, allows their partners and customers to build their own talent ecosystem: to source, vet, qualify, skill, build communities, and offer opportunities to qualified networks of individuals and professionals. Talent Cloud owners looking to provide a robust and extensive e-learning experience to their users can request that O’Reilly be made available to their users at a more affordable rate and in their local currency.

“By integrating O’Reilly’s vast library of expert-developed courses into Gebeya’s Talent Clouds, we are equipping African talent with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in today’s digital economy. This partnership to make O’Reilly’s suite of offerings available for people across the African continent opens up the floodgates of opportunity for millions.” Martin Ndlovu, Chief Growth Officer of Gebeya said.

Bringing O’Reilly into the picture especially aims to enrich Gebeya’s existing partnership with Microsoft to establish the largest-ever Microsoft Talent Cloud for Africa. Microsoft.gebeya.com, officially launching next week, will leverage O’Reilly’s curated Microsoft-aligned courses spanning topics like Azure administration and AI engineering to bolster skill building for in-demand roles.

Talents completing the curated learning paths offered earn industry-recognized O’Reilly badges certifying Azure competencies, access to 160+ Azure labs, unlimited sandbox environments, specialized Azure courses, and practice exams, preparing them to meet Microsoft partner talent needs. This powerful combination cements Microsoft’s capabilities and positions the Microsoft Talent Cloud as a catalyst connecting skilled individuals to abundant opportunities across Africa.
