The Ins and Outs of "Talent Development"

By Ed TittelOct 21, 2015

Recently, I've been tasked with designing and crafting a series of articles on talent development over at Tom's IT Pro, and it's led me into a whole new realm of IT-related learning, training, and certification concerns. Not only is there a professional association devoted to this topic -- with its own branded certification -- there's a whole discipline behind the topic that unites management, HR, and IT functions behind the idea of providing access to learning and training after an IT person joins an organization, with an eye toward keeping them focused on present and future technology needs, and being ready, willing, and able to make the most of them.

Are Credit Info Breaches the "New Normal?"

By Ed TittelMay 6, 2015

A recent flurry of reports via Experian, through its data breach resolution arm, in tandem will well-known security research firm the Ponemon Institute, paint a depressing portrait of the data breach landscape -- especially for firms involved in handling customer credit and other sensitive data. The moral of the story turns out to be a combination of ongoing education for security firms and data handlers alike, along with a profound need for preparation in advance of data breaches before they occur.

Those Seeking Cisco Certs Should Mind Their Study/Learn Master List

By Ed TittelNov 12, 2014

Over the years, it's been interesting to watch the Cisco Learning Center grow and evolve to better meet the needs of IT professionals pursuing that company's often-coveted certification credentials. Of all the many things that Cisco does right with its cert programs, the company's "Study/Learn Master List" is second to none when it comes to helping interested parties find their way to the right exams, objectives, training, and study/prep materials. If you don't know about this already, you should; if you do know about it, you might want to head back to give it another look, as numerous exams have been (or will be) updated or replaced in the very near future.

CCHIT Cert To Be Withdrawn from Market

By Ed TittelFeb 19, 2014

Just recently, Healthcare IT News/HEI Watch published an interview with Alisa Ray, CEO of the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) in which she revealed that her organization is exiting the Electronic Health Records (EHR) certification business, and will concentrate on advisory services and though leadership going forward. This confirms a strong suspicion I'd formed when recently updating a survey of leading Healthcare IT (HIT) certifications for Tom's IT Pro, and shows that despite strong demand and rapid growth in Healthcare IT, not all certifications (or the programs they inhabit, or sponsors who deliver them) are made alike.

Coding Is Back At The Top of the IT Job Heap

By Ed TittelDec 11, 2013

According to a recent (December 6, 2013) item on the Dice.com job search website -- a natural purveyor of job market information, trends, and news, as you might well image -- software development is currently the skill in highest demand for technology jobs in the USofA. According to the site, more than 230,000 jobs have been posted there in the past three months. This represents a jump of 3 percent for the same sector from a year ago, and a 120 percent jump from 2009, when the job market was at its most recent lowest ebb.
