International Consortium of Agile (ICAgile), the industry-leading Agile training accreditation consortium, announced today that ASPE, Inc. has posted its schedule of classes that offer students the opportunity to become a Certified ICAgile Professional. ASPE is on track to offer well over 100 Certified ICAgile Professional, (CIP) classes in 2013. This is only the beginning of ASPE’s ICAgile course offerings, as the company is working toward offering classes in every track of the ICAgile Learning Roadmap.

“Working with ASPE to offer ICAgile classes has been tremendously validating,” said Jennifer Stone, Managing Director of ICAgile. “ASPE is a highly respected training provider in the software development community. When a company of ASPE’s stature values our accreditation process, we know our model is satisfying a real need for the Agile community.”

“I have been thoroughly impressed with the amount of forethought they have put into this program as well as the rigor they apply when certifying courses,” says ASPE blogger, Natalie Morgan. “It has been a challenging process but one that bore a tremendous amount of value, as it provided me a great deal of time to evaluate our courseware and how it served those individuals that were looking for an Agile education.”

“This is a wonderful step forward for the agile field, that a company with the breadth and experience in teaching as ASPE has, recognizes the value in having its Agile courses examined and accredited by ICAgile,” says Dr. Alistair Cockburn, co-author of the Agile Manifesto and special advisor to ICAgile.

The International Consortium for Agile is the only course accreditation body with a methodology-neutral set of learning objectives created and carefully vetted by agile experts. ASPE’s core mission is the development of hands-on, real-world courses designed to fill pressing skills gaps to make employees more effective and empowering companies to gain critical competitive advantage.

ICAgile is developing the definitive learning roadmap for agile development in collaboration with the best experts drawn from around the world.

IT Outsourcing in Ukraine Becoming a Thriving Industry

With IT skilled workforce trained to provide software and application development services, among others, it is small wonder that Ukraine’s IT outsourcing (ITO) industry is booming.

Industry experts in 2010 have recorded a 20% growth in Ukraine’s outsourcing industry. The number of skilled laborers working for ITO companies surged to at least 2 400 more than that in 2009. If that is not enough to say Ukraine’s outsourcing industry is something to watch out for, then perhaps the commendations from different industry experts can speak for themselves. Ukraine was among the Global Services (GS) and Tholons’ Top50 Emerging Global Outsourcing Destinations in 2009. In 2011, Ukraine was named ITO Destination of the Year Award in the European Outsourcing Excellence Awards. It was also among the top 20 locations for outsourcing in the Global Services100 List, which is annually compiled by GS in partnership with NeoAdvisory.

Industry experts have seen several reasons why companies are choosing to outsource to Ukraine; some reputed companies have even started to establish their brand in the country. One of the most common reasons for outsourcing is the cost. Companies get to save when outsourcing some of its needed services compared to keeping an in-house department for those services. Services like software development are best outsourced to Ukraine not only because the country has a skilled workforce but also because doing so can be more cost-efficient. There are lots of resources in other locations like Moscow or St. Petersburg, but the costs there are expensive. This is an advantage to Ukraine, which is offering lower service costs than most countries in Western Europe.

Ukraine also has a high literacy rate to boast of and a high population of personnel with technical skills. The personnel usually have a background in physics or mathematics making it easy for them, to hurdle technical problems. The country’s higher education system encourages students taking computer-related courses to learn foreign languages, like English. Software developers particularly those joining the outsourcing industry had to obtain the required language skill. This makes them competent not only in providing the service required but also in communicating with the customers.

One of the ITO companies in Ukraine that specializes in software and application development is Svitla Systems, which has worked with a number of clients from start-ups to corporate companies and even educational institutions. Svitla Systems boasts of a roster of employees with adequate expertise when it comes to IT services. The company employs developers with a degree in Computer Science and many of them have Master’s Degree while some even have PhD’s. They are also good in spoken and written English so language barrier is not a problem.

Companies like Svitla Systems are the ones behind the rise of Ukraine as an outsourcing destination.

A Digital Asset Management System From Design to Production

databasepublish.com – There are times in the evolution of an organization when the timing is right to transition f r o m old processes and procedures into new ones. These are opportunities that must be managed professionally and with meticulous attention to detail. Stakeholders f r o m many areas often get involved and can produce monumental results for the future direction of the organization.

Many organizations produce a variety of catalogs, direct mail and other collateral in order to support the selling and marketing of their products. In addition, many organizations are seeking to improve their online presence, necessitating a web content management system that works seamlessly with other sales and marketing campaigns.

As an organization evolves, for example, the decision to go f r o m a cumbersome film-based photography approach to a digital asset-based approach is no trivial matter. The advantages of a digital asset management system are vast, for improving the creative and production processes. However, a third-party content management system consulting business can greatly improve the associated transition process.

An appropriate digital asset management strategy is the first step in moving toward a more effective system. The design of digital asset management work flow models and use cases are essential tools for understanding archival procedures and determining future support requirements.

The evaluation of vendors by soliciting responses is vital to matching business requirements and vendor constraints. Additional opportunities for integration with merchandising, an inventory management system, and a new web content management system may be discovered along the way and taken into consideration for final product selection.

A qualified content management system consultant has a better chance of providing the most independent evaluation of vendors, especially if they can translate the technical specifications and functionality into layman’s terms. This enables stakeholders within the organization to make more informed decisions about the final selection. This reduces selection process time, ensures user adoption, and mitigates risk.

Oftentimes, customization is required for legacy system integration in order to capture campaigns that will be replaced by the new digital asset management system as well as for bulk asset upload. Additionally, many digital asset management solutions can be leveraged to act as a centralized hub and as a traffic controller for all assets to be managed and distributed in the organization’s digital work flow.

High integrity content management consultants are vital participants for organizations to accomplish digital asset management objectives. Proven experience is essential in order to reduce risk and efficiently facilitate a smooth transition to a digital asset management system or a web content management system.

Selecting the right vendor that best suits the organizational requirements and offers flexible integration into additional systems is vital. The assistance of a content management system consultant that is well versed in tailoring and implementing digital asset management systems reduces time especially when confronted with understanding and translating the technical attributes of each vendor.

As a result, the potential of a digital asset management system can be more fully realized through the assistance of a qualified consultant. Organizations that find the right consultant are better able to effectively deploy digital asset management solutions, in less time, with tighter integration, and with greater peace of mind.

DPCI – 10 Years And Going Strong With Implementation Of Ideal Digital Asset Management

Database Publishing Consultants, Inc. is committed to helping companies find and implement the best suited content management solutions to meet their needs. Nowadays if a business is going to be successful it is vital that modern technology is not only used, but it should be embraced. This is necessary because competition is fierce and keeping up is simply not good enough. An Internet presence is key to continued success but not every website is equal. The truth is that unless a website is developed with knowledge and expertise it is unlikely that it will get ranked well with search engines. And that means the site could virtually get lost in cyberspace. A well designed website includes proper utilization of keywords for search engine optimization. It also includes such things as branding materials and company logos, audio and video clips, photos and images, and a number of other types of content that make a site more compelling. As a company grows it naturally accumulates an increasing library of digital assets which results in the need for a reliable digital a s s e t management system. That’s where DPCI comes in.

After 10 years of service, DPCI continues to assist corporations, businesses, and numerous organizations find new ways to achieve increased speed and functionality in managing and updating online content.

State Of The Art Approaches to Digital Asset Management

Every modern business has an online presence and that Internet connection requires having a website. If the site is not search engine optimized it will not receive traffic. First impressions do count in cyberspace – if the website is not interesting enough to catch and hold a visitor’s attention the result will be a loss of sales. One way to brand a company and to add interest to a site is through such things as logos, videos, audios, still and stock photos and images, and other forms of content. But in a short period of time this arsenal of content adds up and if it is not properly organized in an effective digital asset management system time can be wasted in searching for, accessing, and updating content.

DPCI works to assist companies with increased speed and functionality in updating online content. An online presence is an absolute requirement of every modern day industry, corporation, business, and organization. But simply having a website does not guarantee visitors to the site. In fact, there are several things that must be in place before visitors can even find a website easily. Perhaps the most important concern is that of search engine optimization. This is a method of utilizing appropriate keywords and phrases in the correct way to get noticed by the search engines. A good ranking with search engines helps to insure that people in need of a particular service or product will find the right site.

Another important part of having a positive online presence is having interesting content that keeps visitors coming back. This is sometimes done through the use of photos, videos, audios, logos and other branding materials. As a company grows and develops new products and services the more of this digital content there is to manage. Obviously the digital asset management is a vital component of any content management system.

Depending on IT personnel to handle this responsibility is how some companies tackle the job. However, this is not the most efficient use of this personnel’s time. While it takes them away from other tasks that they are better suited for the content management system they may decide to incorporate is likely to be less effective than other options available. Any digital asset management system implemented will place more responsibility on marketing professionals and content experts and less on It personnel.

DPCI was incorporated 10 years ago. In ten years time Database Publishing Consultants, Inc.’s expert consultants have expanded their already extensive knowledge about what makes the perfect content management solutions. Whether working with a museum or a large corporation, DPCI can easily implement a digital asset management that allows even non-technical personnel to become producers.

Web Content Management System Provided By DPCI

DPCI is committed to assisting companies to find the best content management system available to meet their particular needs. If a company’s website doesn’t leave an impression that lasts then its memory soon disappears from the mind of the visitor, which means sales are lost.

With 10 years of experience, DPCI has a wide range of expertise in implementation of CMS platforms. DPCI offers a full service implementation, from knowledge about how web content should work in various business environments to business analysis, project management, product integration, extended programming, training and support.

These private label offerings can assist in making communication more assessable between customers, suppliers, or partners, both internally and externally. Resources, information, and an online community relevant to the particular needs of the targeted market group will enhance visitor’s experience.

Many companies rely on their IT personnel to develop, manage and deliver all web content used. This often takes the IT professional away from other tasks that require his/her expertise. Web content management systems provided by DPCI are based on the belief that access should be instant and it should be convenient to use with a template driven web browser interface. With the right content management system, even non-technical personnel can become producers.

DPCI delivers systems that are easy to use and which place less responsibility on IT personnel and more on marketing professionals and content experts. Through careful evaluation DPCI determines the right content management system for a particular company and its business type. The system will be flexible and scalable – that is, it will have the capacity to grow with the company.

Every company has unique needs. DPCI can implement a digital asset management system that is geared specifically to the requirements of a large corporation or smaller organization. The fact is that over a short period of time companies acquire numerous corporate logos and branding materials, still and stock photography, audio and video clips, and archival content of all kinds. This must be organized and handled via digital asset management.

Database Publishing Consultants, Inc. is now celebrating 10 years of business. In that time DPCI has gained a vast knowledge regarding what makes an ideal content management system. The team at DPCI is a collection of experts in various areas, each bringing wisdom to share with the group.

OpenCRM UK – Hosted Alternative for Salesforce.com, ACT!, Sage CRM, GoldMine

CRM Software crafters Software Add-ons based in rural North Yorkshire, UK, are delighted with the response to their recession busting marketing campaign for OpenCRM.

The company’s strong mission statement, ‘to bring corporate software technology within the reach of small to medium businesses’ seems to be the key to their success.

Marketing manager Helen Burton revealed ‘we knew we had a strong message, offering license free software, but our campaign has had the phones ringing off the hook!’.

Consumer expectation is driving the mid market business need to get online , OpenCRM’s free license solutions needed to be internet based with portal capability so customers can place and track orders, see cases and issues, download documents & information – Anytime, Anywhere access is a major boost for the previously disconnected workforce.

John Mabley of ITS describes his software as the glue between the systems – ‘I employ home teleworkers and need them to be connected to the office – OpenCRM integrated my telephony system, website and SageLine 50 accounts so that I can get a complete picture of my business day-to-day no matter where I am’.

Managing Director Graham Anderson speaking for the company said ‘all businesses whether corporate or mid market have similar core business processes, Sales & Marketing – Sales Order Processing – Invoicing – Document & Project Management,’ he added that ‘too many software implementations fail because too much money goes into the purchase and licensing of software, by supplying license free on demand software we remove this cost and our clients can put their investment where it should be: requirement analysis ; staff training; and systems integration’.

OpenCRM’s advice, based on years’ of experience, is very clear: Choose a technically sound solution with an open structure (non proprietary database & interface) that will scale and integrate; encourage user uptake – keep IT simple, go for evolution rather than revolution, invest in your people and spend on training; Get rid of as much of the IT headache as you can by having your software systems hosted, managed, updated, secured and backed-up by the professionals.

Celerant Technology Made The Inc. 5000 List for the Second Year in a Row

Inc. recently announced that Celerant Technology Corporation, a leader in the retail software industry, has once again achieved placement on the Inc. 5000. This is the second year that Celerant Technology has been featured on the list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country, signifying the company’s upward momentum toward increasing success. This list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.

“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”

Celerant Technology has continued to expand further within the retail software industry, providing an advanced multichannel solution, along with a high level of service and ingenuity to clients for the past ten years. Since its inception in 1999, Celerant Technology has significantly grown in size and revenue and has been recognized by the industry with numerous awards for the complete software solution, Command Retail.

“We are again honored to be ranked on this year’s Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in the nation,” said Ian Goldman, President and CEO of Celerant Technology. “Our higher ranking for this year’s list represents our commitment to our product and clients, which results in our continued success and growth, even in these pressing economic times. We look forward to what the future will bring and to continuing our ascent up this prestigious list.”

The 2009 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding; making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.

Celerant Technology’s ranking on the Inc. 5000 is a noteworthy accomplishment that demonstrates the financial growth of the company. The forward movement in placement further recognizes Celerant’s status as a leader in the retail software industry.

Celerant Chosen To Implement Complete Software Solution For The U.S. Naval Fleet

Celerant Technology, a leader in the retail software industry, was recently selected by the Department of the U.S. Navy as the new software provider for their Ships Store Program. After extensive research and an elaborate review process, the US Navy has chosen Celerant to provide an “end to end” enterprise software solution that could be used on over 150 naval ships.

“We are pleased to have been chosen by the US Navy and look forward to developing this partnership and providing the Navy with our advanced retail software,” stated Ian Goldman, Celerant President and CEO. “Our team of experienced software developers, implementation specialists, and support technicians are well equipped and prepared to make the transition of each ship store as smooth as possible, regardless of a ship’s location. With our software, Command Retail, the naval stores will gain similar efficiencies of operation of workload reduction, corporate oversight and reduced training costs, equivalent to stores existing in traditional brick and mortar locations.”

Command Retail manages all areas of a retail business, f r o m the point of sale on the front end, to inventory management, warehouse, distribution, allocation, advanced reporting on the back end, and integrated e-commerce. The Celerant system is written in Java and performs in real time, connecting all retail channels seamlessly with a centralized database. If by chance internet connectivity is lost, such as when a navy ship is at sea, transactions at the store are not interrupted and the Celerant system allows all data to be imported as soon as the connection is restored.

“With the selection of this new retail software provider for the U.S. Navy’s ships stores, the Navy will have taken a step in moving f r o m a legacy environment to a more efficient corporate enterprise / distance support process. We expect significant efficiencies such as the reduction of training costs and inventory carrying costs.” stated Charles Vaughan, Vice President, Navy Exchange Service Command Afloat Operations / Ships Store Program. “Implementing Command Retail will provide our fleet with a higher level of efficiency and the capability to make cost-effective operational decisions that weren’t as possible before.”

The Department of the Navy has approximately 155 Ship Stores on commissioned ships, carrying basic necessities, as well as a limited selection of semi-luxury items such as electronics and watches.
