A fast-growing Online Training Company – Edureka, uses CoreStack as a catalyst to propel its growth
Edureka is a live and interactive e-learning platform that is revolutionizing professional online education. By partnering with a world-class team of experts, it aims to empower professionals with the skills that will enable them to advance in their careers. It is the fastest growing online education platform and has the highest course completion rate in the industry.
As Edureka traversed the path of high-speed growth, they soon realized that their Learners (i.e. their end customers) and Trainers were struggling with the cumbersome process of setting up Training labs.
Trainers used their own local version of training labs to demo during virtual classroom sessions whereas Learners had to invest much time in setting up their own local labs in their PCs. Consequently, precious classroom time was wasted in troubleshooting different environment-related issues of Learners.
Also, as a common lab environment was not available, assessment and grading of Learner’s performance was a challenge. They had to depend on offline assignment submissions.
Due to the limited availability of Big Data administrators and Cloud experts, customer could not attempt any innovation like Cloud-based labs. They were also apprehensive about the lack of clarity in calculating the cost per Learner if Cloud-based labs are to be provided.
To overcome these challenges, the management decided to pursue two important goals
After evaluating a bunch of other options, Edureka finally selected CoreStack’s Cloud Lab-as-a-Service platform (CLaaS) to build its training labs. The entire solution was ready to be integrated with the customer’s LMS in less than two weeks.
A simple per-learner pricing model was provided, which was fixed and predictable, irrespective of scale and usage. This model significantly helped them in estimating the overall budgetary requirement and get all required approvals in a single go.
