Why would you upskill your

With new technologies developing at lightning speed and a challenging job market, finding and retaining the right people is a daunting task. However, there’s a shortage in skills rather than a shortage in people. That’s why 50% of all employees will have to upskill within the coming five years, World Economic Forum already warned us.

Upskilling your employees is the best solution to bridge that skills gap. We know that upskilling will lift your employees’ spirit and give them a sense of belonging, knowing their employer invests in them.

Similarly, talented people are attracted to organizations willing to invest in their personal development. In the end, upskilling is between 72% and 90% cheaper than hiring new talent.

Benefits of upskilling your organization

Increase team efficiency and productivity.

Improve employee retention.

Boost employee belonging and satisfaction.

Attract new talent.

Your SRE learning journey starts here 

Implementing SRE in your organization is a team sport. A shared understanding of SRE principles and practices among your engineering team is the key to successful implementation. However, Roman was not built in a day, and similarly, developing a shared understanding of SRE principles and practices cannot be achieved through a single course. Embark on the SRE learning journey and elevate your team’s SRE skills to the next level!  

Our learning journey entails a blend of training and workshops, which are designed to get teams started, from the basics to advanced concepts and masterclasses. Engineering team members can participate in customized learning journeys that fit their SRE knowledge level, while managers can build their knowledge and understanding through specialized keynotes and leadership sessions. 

Craft the learning journey that perfectly fits your team

Unlock your team’s full potential with a tailor-made SRE learning plan! With five dynamic phases, this plan is designed to help your team discover areas for improvement, set ambitious goals, and embark on a customized learning journey. Say goodbye to generic learning and embrace what you truly need to succeed!

Become an expert


On top of what a team already has implemented with respect to monitoring, this masterclass adds service chain and value stream monitoring concepts. It also discusses the white-box/black-box pattern in detail and the use of the four golden signals.  

SRE and Cloud 

In this masterclass, we will look at how to plan for a migration to the cloud, what complexity you will encounter, and how – from an SRE perspective – you can simplify and structure your environments.  

Architecting for Reliability 

In this masterclass, we discuss how the boundaries of your systems can help you define SLI and SLO, how to reduce complexity in the architecture, and which design choices you can make for scaling and stability.  

SRE as a Leader 

In this training, participants will focus on how to realize and guide the SRE transformation journey effectively without losing their authenticity as a leader.  

Matt Fletcher 

Senior Data Analyst at Maersk

“Due to my current role, the program helped me in two ways:  

Firstly, by expanding my knowledge of SRE, I can provide more valuable insights to stakeholders because I’ll be able to foresee what they need before they do.  

Secondly, the program can help me optimize my own architecture, which is something I’m always doing in between new development work.

While the current architecture is mostly cloud-centric, it is very dependent on the PowerBI service. As we move to promote more queries on Azure, I want to have the best and brightest SRE principles in my mind when I start doing this.”

DevOps and SRE whitepaper

Learn how SRE and DevOps are similar and different at the same time. SRE is another way of doing DevOps, but instead of focusing on increasing velocity and collaboration between development and
operation teams, SRE focuses on system reliability. Download our whitepaper about “How to run your IT organization like a software product.”

DevOps and SRE

In our paper “Monitoring Value Streams,” we look into the relationship between technical failures and unsatisfied customers, as well as the financial impact. For example, how do you measure the impact of an outage on the end-user? Download now to find out.
