Education targets IT Management and Project Managers worldwide

KINGSLAND, TX – January 14, 2004 -- ACTS Corporation, a leading IT consulting and software firm, today announced it has joined forces with MDE Enterprises and TenStep, Inc to create a dynamic new 3-2-1 seminar series for all levels of IT Management, including Project Managers. “As small, specialist IT consultancies we each punch above our weight providing advice and training to major vendors and user organizations. Our goal is to help IT professionals rise above the ‘reading edge’ and teach them how to successfully unleash technology solutions while containing costs,” explains Bill Carico, president of ACTS. "The series is called 3-2-1 because it combines THREE great seminars and TWO weeks of classes – all at ONE great location. The breadth of the offerings is truly outstanding, with practical knowledge for the beginning IT professional through CIOs, as well as for the project managers who bring IT initiatives to fruition.”

A company can send one or more people to attend one or more sessions, tailoring the itinerary as their time and needs dictate.

“Every session is based upon real world experience rather than unproven theories. This is truly a unique program and an experience participants will be able to draw upon for years to come,” states Mike Sisco, CEO of MDE Enterprises. “This is the most practical IT professional development program available anywhere. Moreover, each class includes the processes and tools to help our clients achieve success rapidly.”

“We’ve assembled an all-star teach-team to deliver twelve standalone sessions spread across three seminar tracks,” said Tom Mochal, president of TenStep Inc. “This is especially appealing to our international clients because they can leverage travel costs to one destination and receive up to two full weeks of valuable professional development,”

The series will be offered twice in 2004. The spring session is April 26 – May 7 at Hilton Head Island, SC and the fall session is Oct 4–15 in the Texas Hill Country near Austin and San Antonio, TX. Week One is MDE’s ‘IT Managers Workshop’, a series of five highly acclaimed standalone sessions. From Tuesday to Friday Tom Mochal presents ‘Project Management: Preparation for Success’ based on the same process that TenStep has licensed to over 800 clients worldwide. Week Two is the ACTS ‘Technical Awareness Series’, designed for both managers and practitioners who want to keep up with important IT trends as well as improve their technical fluency across a broad range of topics, including Linux, Open Source, SANs, security, server consolidation, application development, outsourcing, and the latest from IBM, Microsoft, Intel, Sun, and HP/Compaq.
