Our Bureau

MUMBAI, Jan. 9

NIIT Ltd and IBM India Ltd have announced an alliance to conduct advanced training courses in IBM's middleware software technologies and jointly market these technologies.

As per the alliance, NIIT will run IBM certified training programmes in 51 of its Centres for Advanced Technology Studies (CATS). These programmes will provide training in IBM technologies like Data Management (DB2, Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing and OLAP) and Transformation and Integration (Visual Age for Java and WebSphere Application Server) software in India. The first programme will commence in Mumbai on January 28.

`` This initiative is a result of a stated shortage of skilled IBM professionals in the market, in India and across the world. Through these programmes we intend to train around 10,000 individuals in the next 12 months,'' said Mr P. Rajendran, Chief Operating Officer, NIIT Ltd at a media briefing held here.

In the first phase, NIIT will offer training programmes at 51 of its Centres for Advanced Technology Studies (CATS) apart from creating a pool of trainers. The company will also work on providing placements to students trained on IBM software with IBM customers and partners.
