Ansichten und Zustimmung aus der europäischen ITK Branche

pfeil_transp„Especially in the ICT sector, the continuous updating of knowledge, skills and competences of employees according to the fast moving developments of the market and its technologies are essential for survival. For this reason, the Deutsche Telekom highly welcomed the European initiative for developing a common ICT sector Framework and we were glad to contribute to the experts work. From our perspective, the European e-Competence Framework as it looks today with its 40 competences organised by 5 competence areas the industry is familiar with and related to the EQF provides an essential basis for a successful sector framework. A great leap forward which will hopefully be confirmed by Europe-wide appreciation and use.“

Markus Lecke, Senior Expert HRD, Corporate Talentmanagement Deutsche Telekom AG

pfeil_transp„For EXIN as an international IT examination institute it is extremely important to have the possibility to link our IT qualification programs to an international competence framework. Thus we are able to show how our international certificates e.g. for ISO/IEC 20000, ITIL® and Information Security Management connect with the demands for training and certification from companies and organisations all across Europe. The big advantage is that there is now a common language of IT competences offering clarity and the possibility to communicate with all parties concerned.“

Jan Dirkx, Portfolio Manager EXIN, Examination institute for Information Science

pfeil_transp„In the information age individual competences become more and more important for employability. Sharing definitions based on common European understanding is a basic prerequisite for strategic personnel development in European/International companies. As the sector becomes more innovative it becomes more necessary to use competence definitions which are consistent and not subject to transient trends. The European e-Competence Framework provides this stable reference framework.“

Angela Kennecke, Resource manager ICT, Airbus / EADS

pfeil_transp„The European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) represents the competence needs of the ICT industry, which influence the development of academic programs, and provides an environment for a multi-stakeholder partnership between universities and companies. A process of matching the computing curricula at Sofia University with the European e-CF has been initiated and will further reflect on the bachelor, master and doctoral levels of education.“

Roumen Nikolov, Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, Sofia University, Bulgaria

pfeil_transp„The Council of European Professional Informatics Societies (CEPIS) was established to make the voice of the European IT Professional heard. It is keenly interested and supportive of the CEN Workshop activities as Professionalism is one of the most important issues for ICT related goods and services for Society in general.

The e-Competence Framework is an important initiative, which serves the purpose of a common European reference tool for ICT competence requirements across Europe intended to bring IT professionalism and related competences to the attention of decision makers. Clearly, CEPIS is strongly supportive of this activity.“

Niko Schlamberger, CEPIS President President of the Slovenian Society INFORMATIKA (SSI)

pfeil_transp„Increasingly IT jobs are exposed to very fast evolution. Technology imposes a rhythm which pushes ICT needs, uses, and resultant jobs. This is why CIGREF is interested in organising IT jobs and then in the management of IT competences needed to answer effectively the needs of IT departments. For this purpose, CIGREF has for many years maintained an IT Job Profiles Nomenclature. The e-Competence Framework is a very useful tool which supports the continuation of this profile catalogue. CIGREF has just used it to complete its competence vision for the new version of the IT Jobs Profiles Nomenclature. This enables companies to benefit from appropriate competences while defining jobs. It also answers effectively the need for competence forecasting to address continuous professional development within an international context.“

Frédéric Lau, Directeur de mission, CIGREF France
pfeil_transp„ECDL Lithuania offers a range of products related to ICT Certifications and we see the merit of potential links between our programs and e-CF. This could be a valuable experience as our programs extend to the other Baltic countries and the Russian-language region.“

Eugenijus Telesius, CEO ECDL Lithuania

pfeil_transp„Common competence and qualification frameworks and standards with the associated education models are a prerequisite for the achievement of the goal of a European labour market with higher levels of mobility. The need is to ensure a very high-quality of training, competence and qualification. ‚Highly qualified, made in Europe‘ needs to become a trademark worldwide. The European e-Competence Framework gives a very encouraging example and the European Commission is also asked to initiate and guide related processes in a multitude of industrial sectors. The IG Metall is always pleased to join in.“

Michael Ehrke, Senior Advisor, IG Metall Germany

pfeil_transp„The developement of the e-CF is in the view of EuroCIO (European CIOs) a valuable contribution to the professionalization of the IT jobs. It will also help to improve the image of IT workers as being a professional job group, thus making IT jobs more attractive for the next generation. This also highly promotes a common way of working over internal European borders: an important factor for all larger European companies who need flexibility to mobilize IT people within their company but over borders, thus creating European IT-citizens. The link between the e-CF and educational institutes, schools and the academic world is a next important step to be taken and to be developed in close cooperation with the IT-supply side and CIOs. We look forward for a close cooperation with the e-CF team to explore and develop this e-CF further.“

Peter Hagedoorn, EuroCIO

pfeil_transp„In its position paper on e-skills the EMF calls for the development of Europe-wide criteria and reference tools for mutual recognition and benchmarking of ICT skills and competences in the European metalworking industry, such as the European e-Competence Framework. In the long-term perspective, a European ICT sectoral framework should provide a qualitative and sustainable basis for improving workers mobility and their further career development perspectives in the international environment of ICT business.“

Caroline Jacobsson, Information & Communications adviser European Metalworkers‘ Federation, EMF

pfeil_transp„As Hungary joined to the European Union and the Bologna process, the Faculty of Informatics in the Eötvös Loránd University developed a new education offering providing students with the possibility to select subjects from Hungarian universities and also from other universities across Europe. The European e-Competence Framework gives our lecturers the opportunity to benchmark higher education offerings within the European context. The framework supports more precise definitions of learning outcomes and can provide a reference standard when creating new study programmes.“

Lázló Kozma, Assoc. Prof. habil. dean, Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Informatics Hungary

pfeil_transp„German ICT industry is very interested in establishing links between the qualification system operated in Germany and European initiatives in the E-Skills-Sector. Both the dual system and the Advanced IT Training System require European wide accepted structures to compare levels and competence profiles. The e-Competence Framework is likely to deliver that structure and foster skills and competence-development across national boundaries. With the e-Competence Framework, the European Education Area takes a great step forward.“

Stephan Pfisterer, Head of Department Education and HR BITKOM Germany

pfeil_transp„ICT competences are probably the most critical factor for innovation and competitiveness of our economies. Thanks to the support expressed by the European Commission, the e-Competence Framework is a powerful way to bring IT professionalism and related competences to the attention of decision makers.

As far as I can see, the CEPIS and IT STAR community is keen to contribute to a wide diffusion of the e-Competence Framework. In order to facilitate its adoption, we are available to develop further guidelines on how to integrate the e-CF with our EUCIP system, that can provide a wide range of competence measurement tools along with the richest European dictionary of ICT knowledge and skills.“

Giulio Occhini, AICA CEO and IT STAR Coordinator AICA

pfeil_transp„Having a set of European competences brings transparency to the European IT-labor market. Thus brings more welfare.“

Tonny Wildvank, Vice President/ Public Sector Capgemini The Netherlands

pfeil_transp„The Polish Information Processing Society (PIPS) is a nationwide professional association supporting a wide range of activities related to IT professionalism. It is involved in national and international certification programs and from this perspective, PIPS appraises the value of the e-Competence Framework as a common reference for the classification of ICT competences, which is compatible with our EUCIP certification system. I hope that the professional ICT community in Poland and in other new EU member states will be more closely involved in further developments related to e-CF. On its part, PIPS would be happy to assist the promotion of this activity in Poland.“

Marek Holynski, President Polish Information Processing Society

pfeil_transp„The e-CF as a common description of ICT skills addresses a tangible market need with significant potential. I am pleased to observe IT STAR’s support and ATIC, as a member society, will assist with the e-CF promotion in Romania. Moreover, as CEO of SoftNet Group, I think the e-CF will help in putting order in the process of assessing and selecting appropriate candidates for the corresponding ICT activities“.

Vasile Baltac, ATIC President and CEPIS President-Elect CEO SoftNet Group Romania

pfeil_transp„Digital literacy is the key to building a modern European economy. The IT Foundation Leader Club Poland appreciates the e-CF as the best European analysis tool for use by companies and institutions. By identifying European recognised competences and roles within the digital economy, Poland can benefit in the  competitive world market. The IT Foundation Leader Club Poland membership, prominent leaders of Polish IT organisations, will benefit from the e-CF and therefore they fully support continuous e-CF development and its application in Poland.“

Arkadiusz Lefanowicz, Chairman of the Board of Trustees IT Foundation Leder Club Poland
