The Open Group is pleased to present...

The First Event in the First Ever Conference Series Focused on the IT Specialist Profession


How Critical is the IT Specialist to You?
If you direct, manage, specify, hire or train IT Specialists -- or if you are one -- you know that your business, industry or service organization could not possibly function without the skills, knowledge and experience of these dedicated professionals.

Who is an IT Specialist?
Deployed in either the development or delivery of IT solutions, an IT Specialist is a service, support, sales or training professional able to bridge the gap between client concerns and technical challenges. To learn more, read Being an IT Specialist -- Is it in your DNA?

“Lufthansa Cargo welcomes the introduction of the IT Specialist Certification program by The Open Group. ITSC will provide an element that is currently missing in the IT industry; a single world-wide set of professional level standards that allow organizations to benchmark against the required skill level, experience and knowledge, and select the right people for the job. We fully support this new initiative and can envisage making this a requirement for IT professionals in our organization.”
Antonio Mastrolorito, Chief IT-Architect, Lufthansa Cargo, Frankfurt
