ITpreneurs Upgrades to Gold Membership of The Open Group

Rotterdam, 11 January 2016 – ITpreneurs announces that it has become a Gold Member of The Open Group, the vendor-neutral global IT consortium. ITpreneurs engages with many framework owners and standards bodies around the world. As a provider of training content and services, we ensure that the voice of our customers, more than 500 leading IT training and consulting organizations, is adequately reflected through our participation in these organizations.

As a member, we are able to tap into and provide input into the work being carried out by several Forums of The Open Group including the IT4IT™ Forum and the Architecture Forum (which works on the development of the TOGAF®, an Open Group standard). The strength of The Open Group lies in the collaborative and open development of new frameworks and standards. Our membership gives us access to the thought leadership, and presents opportunities for the training community at large to offer relevant training programs to IT professionals, says Arjan Woertman, VP R&D ITpreneurs.

We are very pleased to see ITpreneurs upgrade to become a Gold Member of The Open Group said Steve Nunn, President and CEO of The Open Group. We welcome the broader participation of ITpreneurs in our standards-setting activities, and their increased involvement in the continued development of our training and certification programs.
