Hyperion Launches Certification Program; Financial Administrators, Developers and Implementation Consultants Now Can Earn Recognition as Experts on World's Leading Business Performance Management Solutions.
The Hyperion Certification Program establishes a structured process by which BPM professionals are trained, tested and ultimately recognized as Hyperion Certified Developers, Administrators, Consultants, and Solutions Architects. The new multi-tiered program offers three levels of certification on core Hyperion products.
"Hyperion is the management system for the global enterprise, a fact that has dramatically increased the demand for IT professionals who have mastered the skills necessary for working with Hyperion solutions," said Sundar Nagarathnam, vice president of Global Education Services at Hyperion. "Organizations are looking for credentialed third-party or even in-house IT professionals who have the expertise to deliver the best that Hyperion has to offer. The Hyperion Certification Program offers a distinct advantage to technology specialists and companies seeking to differentiate themselves in a competitive IT marketplace."
The Hyperion Certified Developer (HCD) and Hyperion Certified Administrator (HCA), which comprise the first level in the three-level program, provide the first step in establishing baseline product knowledge in solution development and administration.
The second level, the Hyperion Certified Consultant (HCC), recognizes advanced technical knowledge and validates the ability of specialists to successfully implement Hyperion applications and products to meet a variety of configurations and business process flows.
The third and highest level is Hyperion Certified Solutions Architect (HCSA), which endorses highly skilled specialists to design, architect and lead Hyperion implementations.
Preparation for certification involves attending Hyperion's standard training, in addition to obtaining hands-on field experience. The HCA and HCD certification are administered by Hyperion, while testing for HCC and HCSA designation is administered in a proctored environment by Thomson Prometric.
