In order to boost the IT Profession and help address the skills shortages and mismatches as well as the other challenges facing the IT Profession, CEPIS is pledging to launch at the end of November 2016 IT Professionalism Europe (ITPE),a network of organisations who commit to furthering IT professionalism in Europe. It promotes best practice in managing IT staff to companies and highlights the need to implement pragmatic solutions for the advancement of IT professionalism, in order to drive its development in a responsible manner. It ensures that its members get the latest insights on the benefits and challenges that various tools, such as the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF), can provide in managing IT staff. CEPIS is pledging to gather 50 organisations in this network by the end of 2018.
