The Home Depot (THD) upskilled staff on BigQuery to derive business insights and meet customer demand, with 92% reporting that training was valuable, and 75% confirming that they used knowledge from their Google Cloud training on a weekly basis.2

THD was challenged with upskilling IT staff to extract data from the cloud in support of efficient business operations. Additionally, they were working on a very short timeline (weeks as opposed to years) to train staff to enable a multi-year cloud migration completion. This included thousands of employees and a diverse range of topics. Find out how they successfully executed this major undertaking by developing a strategic approach to their training program in this blog.
