It’s getting out of the wraps now. The world’s most awaited IT qualifications – the WROX IT Certifications - are a step closer to their global launch, first thing in January 2013. They are brought together by Wiley, the owner of the WROX brand - and one of the world’s largest publishers of scientific & technology content - and the Software Engineering Quality Board of the BPO Certification Institute, Inc. (BCI), the US-based global leader in outsourcing standards and credentialing. Notably, pre-registrations for WROX IT Certifications will commence in December across 50+ countries in BCI’s worldwide network of BCI-WROX Academies and special departments in Universities. www.bpocertifications.com
The official WROX Certifications website www.wroxcertifications.com for the BCI-WROX initiative was launched Tuesday, Nov 6, 2012, in the Gurgaon Asian Operations Headquarters of BCI in India. Speaking on the occasion, Mark Allin, Senior Vice President, Professional Development hoped that “...WROX Certifications will change the way technologies will be innovated and developed in the future and they will help widen the bases for employability of talents across the world in the information technology industry …” The event was also attended by several top Wiley and BCI managers including Christine Dunn, Marketing Director and Philip Kisray, VP, International Development as well as Paras Bansal, Sandip Ghosh, Dinesh Chugh and Nidhi from the Wiley India office.
Vikas Gupta, the Managing Director of Wiley India and the prime mover of the BCI-WROX initiative, recounted how WROX certifications have been brought to life, and how, vendor neutrality of WROX will play a critical role in establishing WROX Certifications as preferred qualifications for recruiters and professionals worldwide in domains like Cloud, Mobile and Web computing and also in traditional infrastructure horizontals like networking and database engineering. Rajiv Gupta, the BCI CEO & President highlighted how BCI chose WROX to bear the “torch” of platform-independence and vendor-neutrality. Rajiv shared the BCI vision for WROX and stressed that Africa holds the key. In his cover presentation, Sanjeeva Shukla, the BCI Executive Vice President, explained how WROX Certifications have been bred by blending WROX’s undisputed leadership in IT content, and BCI’s pathbreaking expertise in standards credentialing and how the these certifications can help increase the share of the third world intellect in technology development.”
In the forum discussions at the end of the website-launch ceremony, the participants also concluded that the 3rd-party stature of WROX-BCI IT certifications adds well to their two other intrinsic values of vendor-neutrality and platform-independence, and lends credibility and reliability to these qualifications. BCI and Wiley hope that WROX’s undisputed leadership in IT books and content will rub-off well on WROX Certifications too.
