Welcome to the era of Business Driven IT and End of traditional IT organization– Says – IT Management Consultancy Quint
The awareness is growing in the market that a well-functioning IT department is an essential condition for achieving the intended business result. To resolve various IT-related organizational challenges and ultimately help clients in achieving the intended business result, Quint Wellington Redwood, an independent boutique consulting and education firm was formed in 1992. Assuming the Indian IT market's potentiality, Netherlands-born Quint started operation in India by the end of last century. Putting strenuous effort, Quint began to raise awareness within the Indian IT organizations for IT Service Management. The outcome was not satisfactory at the beginning. But when the evangelist phase was over, the response from the Indian IT professional was overwhelming. In their own words " The response was so great that we were not able to meet up the demand for training programs for the initial period and had to garner additional support from regional centers in Malaysia, Netherlands and US."
Quint is first company to launch ITIL training offerings in the country. It was also first to globally launch CoBIT5.0 Implementation and Assessor modules. Quint Academy, the education arm of Quint, is one of the world's largest IT best practice training organizations, which trains and certifies close to 100,000 professionals per year on an average.
