Intensive Ramp-Up Program Enables IBM Solution Partner to Capture New Business Opportunity!

Background

Bitwise Solutions, a premier IBM business partner with offices in several parts of the world, delivers technology solutions that leverage data to enable business insights. By deploying IBM’s breakthrough state-of-the-art technology innovations, they help their global clients maximize their competitive advantage. Their highly experienced dedicated team of data professionals, with a focus on data warehousing, business intelligence, Big Data and Web/Mobile application development has made the difference to their client’s solution.

In order to further extend their solution portfolio and be able to include the latest IBM products, their Indian subsidiary, based in Pune, India, wanted to up-skill the development teams to deploy and implement IBM Middleware technology solutions to their clients. The trainings required were critical and crucial for Bitwise, to keep phase with the timeline – to accommodate the clients’ project delivery schedule; the enablement had to happen in a very short span of time to meet their client demand..

Approach

Amstar Technologies, one of the trusted Arrow Global Training Alliance partners, covering India and APAC countries, worked closely with Bitwise to investigate their project specific IBM training requirements, identify the most relevant IBM course content as well as suitable learning material. Based on our detailed training need needs analysis approach, defined their learning path merging successfully their major objectives by:

• Imparting the technical knowledge on a broad range of products – the training had to be extremely efficient & real-world related with project sync;

• Fully aligned to the customer project’s deadlines

Solution

The solution Amstar Technologies offered consisted of 30 days of highly customized appreciated hard core practical training with necessary hands-on and the topics spanning several relevant IBM product families including Business Process Management, DataPower, IBM Integration Bus as well as Cognos Analytics – to fit into an already tightly packed project calendar.

In order to meet their tight schedule, some of the courses were planned back to back, and delivered as Instructor-Led-Online classes, so no time was wasted on travel and logistics. The advantages of a live instructor-led format were clearly beneficial to the team’s learning experience as the class size limitation to only 7 students and majorly considering the project turnaround time.
