HP Launches IT for Business

The HP ATA IT for Business learning and certification programme was announced by HP on April 23rd.

This unique programme, created by HP and Certiport, is designed to help business students prepare for a job where they will need to understand technology concepts and basic procedures in order to successfully start or run a business, manage a project, or simply interface with other technical departments and be able to successfully communicate and coordinate with them.

What’s Covered?

The HP ATA – IT for Business certification provides the knowledge and experience to achieve business objectives through technology. With real-world scenarios, students gain practical experience defining business opportunities, evaluating IT solutions, planning, executing, and measuring the bottom line results.

This certification addresses the following skills:

  • Identify the pillars of IT and describe how they are used to solve business challenges
  • Define the business problem or opportunity to be addressed
  • Evaluate alternative solutions (Collaborate with the project team members)
  • Plan, execute, and monitor an IT-driven solution with measurable results

Career Pathways

Some careers that can be positively affected by having an IT for Business certification are:

  • Entrepreneurs
  • Business Analysts
  • Product, Programme, or Project Managers
  • Finance Manager
  • Marketing Professional

Full Solution

The exciting part of the HP ATA programme is that HP, Certiport (through Prodigy Learning in the UK & Ireland) are offering a FULL pathway learning solution for institutions; including courseware, lecture notes, course materials, lab guides, scenarios, practice tests, and certification exams.

While other IT technology vendors offer simple curriculum and expect students to pursue certification on their own, HP and Certiport are focused on providing schools and students the tools and environment they need to successfully achieve certification.

Please note the new HP ATA IT for Business certification is seperate to the existing HP ATA Cloud  certifications and learning materials, and is not included in existing HP ATA Exam Packs.  It is purchased seperately but a discount is available to customers purchasing both HP ATA Cloud and HP ATA IT for Business.
