What can QA now offer our clients?

By bringing the two companies together, as well as helping organisations build the critical tech skills that they need to win, QA can now also help our clients build their digital marketing, e-commerce and data analytics skills.

This allows QA to play an even greater role in driving digital transformation, using Circus Street to build digital and data capabilities across their entire enterprise, and Cloud Academy to systematically assess, build and validate the skills of their tech teams to deliver it.

The acquisition also means QA is able to offer its clients the broadest choice of different modes of training to fit their circumstances, from live virtual to in-classroom training, as well as fully digital, self-paced training.

The acquisition of Circus Street represents a significant increase in QA’s global reach, with over 500,000 learners in over 150 countries having used the platform to date.
