IBM, Sun and Novell are among the industry bigwigs behind an initiative to create global standards for Internet training and certification. They launched a consortium on Tuesday, together with Lotus and Netscape, aimed at creating a multivendor standard for training and certification of customers and service professionals.
The group aims to reduce the cost and time for vendors to be certified in each others' products by about 50 per cent. Resellers will be trained to a basic level, to receive a generic certification, and will then be required to obtain vendor-specific training for those products they are interested in supporting.
