Future Network Cert Honouring Top Requirements Engineers & Software Architects of 2015 for DACH Countries

On Monday, 30 May 2016, Future Network Cert presented the top 20 among those who completed the certification exams for systems analysts, requirement engineers and business analysts in 2015.  The IBM Forum Vienna formed the splendid backdrop of the event.  The prizes were awarded by Mr. Peter Hruschka, (Member of the IREB Board and the iSAQB Board), Mr. Bernd Obermayer, (IBM Software Sales Manager), a member of Future Network, and Ms. Sonja Haberl (Managing Director of Future Network Cert GmbH and Member of the Board of the non-profit association Future Network Cert. The ceremony was opened by Mr. Bernd Obermayer.

In his lecture entitled “The Never-Ending Story” Peter Hruschka drew attention to the fact that IT products and systems can at times prove to be long-lived and repeatedly present challenges to new technological developments. Requirements should therefore be kept up-to-date and software architecture adapted accordingly as a matter of necessity.

Peter Hruschka introduced a model which creates long term benefits for companies, and demonstrated how IREB and iSAQB – by way of their Advanced Programme – help participants of the various further education courses utilise these benefits for their companies as well.

As far as IREB is concerned, the Advanced Module for Requirements Modelling, together with the RE@agile modules being developed, play a special role. Of the numerous Advanced iSAQB modules, DDD, IMPROVE and AGILA deserve special mention for sustainability.

“The number of CPRE certifications in Austria grew by an enormous 45% in 2015, clear proof of the top ranking enjoyed by CPRE as the leading certifying body in Requirements Engineering.  This success wouldn’t be possible without the exceptional support of our Austrian partners,” commented Stefan Sturm, Executive Manager of IREB GmbH.

“It’s great to see iSAQB’s vision, namely the creation of a uniform educational standard for software architects, becoming more and more of a reality each year.  We see this in an annual increase in the graduates from our courses and, above all, in the high degree of satisfaction voiced by course participants.  With this aim and current IT trends in mind, we are constantly monitoring and revising all our syllabuses. The honour bestowed by Future Network Cert is not only the icing on the cake for the graduates, but also for iSAQB,” Mahbouba Gharbi (Dipl.Ing.), Chairwoman of iSAQB, emphasised.

Future Network Cert, the Society for Multi-Disciplinary Continuing Education and Training through upskilling, organises open and in-house exams in iSAQB - Software Architecture worldwide and IREB-Requirements Engineering in the EU, Switzerland and China, both at Foundation and Advanced Levels.

IREB and iSAQB provide the outline, contents, and timeframe for the achievement of training objectives as well as the topics for practical exercises through their syllabuses. Format and implementation of the training is up to the training provider. Both IREB and iSAQB recommend attendance of a training course in preparation for the certification examination. However, this is not a prerequisite for the examination.  In both societies, IREB and iSAQB, the sections "training", "examinations" und "definition of syllabuses" are organised independently. This guarantees a maximum of quality and impartiality at all levels of the training and continuing professional education schemes.

Certificates issued by Future Network Cert are recognised by certification bodies in all other countries and are thus internationally valid, provided that IREB e.V. and iSAQB e.V. have recognised these certification bodies.
