According to a McKinsey report, the Indian IT industry will need an additional 1.1 million IT professionals by 2008, and the supply according to current trends will be just 865,000. So there is a potential shortfall of 235,000 professionals by 2008 if the current trends continue.
It is not because that this shortage is going to happen as per the current trends just because enough manpower is short in our country but in fact it is due to the simple reason that this isn’t enough ’competent’ manpower as per the industry requirements and standards. Out of the many possible solutions to overcome this problem, getting certified internationally from an appropriate international company with respect to a particular technology or product would definitely be an important remedy.
The Most important fact is that the certification programme is not restricted to a particular stream. All students, Working People from various backgrounds like BE/BTECH/MCA/BSC/MSC/BCA/MBA/BA/Diploma etc willing to work in Top IT Companies can go for International Certifications with proper training.
