Swiss Informatics to Promote Software Specialist Titles

SISoftware project failures are still a recurring problem for projects of all sizes and levels of complexity due to a lack of a renowned brand for professionals that possess software management skills. CEPIS Member Society in Switzerland, Swiss Informatics (SI), recently started a project aiming to provide computer science graduates the opportunity to obtain and retain specialist titles that distinguish them from other ICT professionals. SI is seeking European or even world-wide collaboration with professional societies that would also be interested in setting up such specialist titles. An important feature of these titles is that they would be awarded by a professional informatics society and not by the industry or an educational body.
