IBM Global Delivery Center Member Becomes First International AOTMP Gold Certified Telecom Professional

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Nov 10, 2011) - AOTMP today announced that IBM is the first organization to have an international AOTMP Gold Certified Telecom Professional on staff. Upon recently receiving his certification, IBM's IT Infrastructure Architect Robert Grey, who lives in Australia, joined the ranks of 31 other telecom management professionals who have achieved AOTMP University's Gold-level certification status. To date, all other Gold certified professionals have been based in the U.S.

This recent accomplishment stems from IBM's decision earlier this year to invest in thousands of AOTMP University credit hours for its global telecom expense management (TEM) and wireless mobility management (WMM) delivery teams. As a recognized, clear distinction of industry excellence, AOTMP University training provides telecom environment management best practices to drive financial and operational efficiencies.

"This is an exciting historic milestone for AOTMP University; we've officially gone global," said AOTMP President and CEO Tim Lybrook. "Organizations like IBM who require their delivery teams to go through our certification programs clearly understand the significance of adopting telecom management best practices to maximize outcomes for their clients."

As part of AOTMP's global training initiative, IBM staff members, as well as those from other leading TEM/WMM consulting companies, are working towards achieving certification as AOTMP Silver, Gold, Platinum or Master Telecom Professionals. To date, more than 150 professionals have achieved at least one of these levels of certification. With more in-house certified professionals, these companies are able to drive improved results for their clients and better differentiate themselves in the marketplace.
