As IT professionals in a competitive market, it’s important to stay highly-skilled and perceived as an expert within our ever-evolving field. Certification through IBM does just that. IBM, in partnership with IDUG, works to provide you with opportunities to get ahead. That’s why this opportunity available at the IDUG DB2 Tech Conference offers little investment with a huge reward.

Globalization and economic realities have made the IT job market highly competitive. Organizations are now looking at individuals possessing accreditations as having a high level of technical competency. Accreditation shows your prospective/current employer that you have determination and ambition as a professional. Not only will you gain creditability, but you’ll also increase your potential for growth. According to Global Knowledge Training LLC, 2010 IT Skills Salary and Report, keeping up with certification not only enables you to grow professionally, it may also lead to greater compensation. Overall, professionals who had earned an IT or project management certification during the last five years earned an average of $5,242 more than their counterparts.

This leading industry event will offer six days of technical content geared to DB2 professionals like yourself  and the opportunity to network with your peers.
