Registration is now open for the annual Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) conference being held on Thursday 7th March 2013, at the Conference Centre of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, in central London.
'Skills for Digital Business' is the theme of this year's conference, reflecting the need for organisations to transform themselves to embrace digital business if they want to succeed. This conference will address the practical actions that can be taken to make sure the organisation has the right skills to make that change.
Once again, the conference will feature an impressive group of speakers. The conference keynote speaker is Andy Nelson, the UK Government’s Chief Information Officer. In that role he has had to understand more than most people the criticality of digital business and its dependence on the right skills. Speakers from Government and Industry, from user organisation and service providers, will explore practical aspects of the challenge facing us all today. The conference will looks at case studies of aspects of management, including recruitment, assessment, deployment, training and qualifications.
A skills-focused exhibition will enable delegates to see the product and service offerings of The SFIA Foundation’s Accredited Partners.
SFIA provides a common reference model for the identification of the skills needed to develop effective Information Systems (IS) making use of Information Communications Technologies (ICT). SFIA enables employers of IT professionals to carry out a range of HR activities against a common framework of reference - including skill audit, planning future skill requirements, development programmes, standardisation of job titles and functions, and resource allocation.
