THE IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) has entered into a tie-up with Lumify Work Ph to upskill and certify the industry’s workers, Lumify said.
In a statement on Thursday, Lumify — a joint venture between the Aboitiz group and Australia’s Edventure Co. — said it will provide training services with internationally recognized learning tools to professionals in the information and technology and business process management (IT-BPM) industry.
Lumify Country General Manager Gilbert Cadiang said he hopes the partnership will elevate the value of the IT-BPM Industry.
“Employees today and in the future need to be upskilled and re-skilled to remain relevant and adapt to the speed of technological change,” said Mr. Cadiang.
“I am looking forward to working as IBPAP’s Talent Development Partner and to establish our role as the premiere training provider in the IT-BPM industry,” he added.
IBPAP President and Chief Executive Officer Jack Madrid said he hopes that the partnership will help the industry pivot to high-value services, raise its global competitiveness, and create a sustainable learning ecosystem.
“In the era of evolving talent needs in an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven landscape, it is imperative to enhance and empower the workforce for the skills of the future,” said Mr. Madrid.
“This partnership with Lumify echoes our commitment to enable and equip the labor force with higher-value tasks as we drive the industry ahead in the era of innovation and AI,” he added.
IBPAP members will enjoy discounts on Lumify’s digital learning assets, customized webinars and digital workshops, access to Lumify facilities and instructors, and joint training needs analysis with clients.
Lumify’s training courses include IT service management, cloud computing, data analytics and AI, professional development, cyber security, project and program management, business analysis, business applications, agile and scrum tools, end-user applications, application and web development, and IT infrastructure and networks.
Lumify will also bring in expertise from partner vendors like Microsoft, AWS, Cisco, ISC2, and ISACA.
Aboitiz group, Lumify’s joint venture partner, said that the partnership helps the group provide professionals with agile and accessible high-quality IT training.
“The world is changing quickly, and education needs to adapt. We need a modern way of training the workforce. These skills have never been more relevant and this style of teaching has never been more appropriate,” Aboitiz Impact Ventures President Jokin Aboitiz said. — Justine Irish D. Tabile
