BTM Adopted by CIPS!

The  Business Technology Management (BTM) initiative and accreditation processes have been adopted by the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS). A Business Technology Management Council (BTMC) was setup to support this initiative and the associated processes. UAM defines the IT Architecture portion of the BTM standardization and accreditation initiative. This is a significant step in developing Canada-wide standards for accreditation of IT professionals.

CIPS (Canadian Information Processing Society) is a national federation of Provincial Information Processing Societies who certify IT professionals in Canada and abroad. Since 1958 CIPS has helped advance Canada’s IT profession by fostering standards, best practices, and integrity for the benefit of IT professionals and the public interest. As “Canada’s Association of Information Technology Professionals” they represent thousands of members across the country.

Multiple five star reviews on Amazon! Five out of Five Stars on Amazon!

A sample of the reviews:

  • “I applaud the author for accomplishing all that he has. He has taken software development methodologies industry best practices, customized them with his own material — some of which I find refreshingly unique, made them available in a customizable repository, and written this great book on how to use it.
    This book is nicely organized and easy to read. It does a great job of presenting the material. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about IT Architecture and SDLC (Systems Development Life Cycle) tailoring.”
  • “The very best book I’ve ever seen on IT Architecture. And I’ve seen a lot. I am an ‘Enterprise Architect’ in a Fortune 20 company, and have been for decades. This book seems to bring more knowledge together in a single place than any other IT Architecture book I’ve ever seen.”
