The Open Group Unveils Plans for IT Specialist Certification Program
New Program First to Certify IT Specialists Based on Independent Assessment of Skills and Experience

SAN FRANCISCO, September 17, 2007 – The Open Group, a vendor- and technology-neutral consortium focused on open standards and global interoperability within and between enterprises, along with Open Group Platinum Members, Capgemini, EDS and IBM today announced plans to launch a global certification program for information technology (IT) specialists. The Open Group IT Specialist Certification (ITSC) program will offer the first independent, comprehensive, global certification for determining the skills, experience and knowledge of professional specialists within several different technical focus areas.

The demand for experienced information technology specialists continues to grow in line with an increasing number of projects focused on business and IT alignment at large global organizations. The Open Group IT Specialist Certification program will enable these organizations to find and select the right expertise for their projects, a critical requirement brought on by regulatory compliance and rising industry expectations for quality of service. In addition, the new program will bring the assurance that other organizations within a company’s business ecosystem acquire and possess comparable capabilities. For information technology specialists, certification against an open, global standard will provide a clear path for career development and offer portable credentials that will be recognized and accepted around the world.
