OneShield Formally Announces Dragon Development Partner Certification Program

WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2010) -  OneShield, Inc., the developer of OneShield Dragon®, an innovatively modern, rules- and tools-based, data-driven policy management solution, is pleased to announce the creation of the Dragon Development Partner Certification Program. The program will ensure development partners, including systems integrators and individual contributors, maintain consistent standards for successfully implementing, extending and maintaining Dragon applications.

"With the explosive growth we have enjoyed in the market, it's become increasingly important for us to establish consistent standards for both organizations and individuals involved with Dragon implementations," said Steve Forte, OneShield industry principal. "Our June release was our largest core upgrade to date, so it's fair to say that even if you worked with the application even recently, you will find there have been significant enhancements that can directly benefit your company."

Certification levels and accompanying criteria for development partners include:

  • Silver - capable of providing resources to help augment staff on a project.

  • Gold - capable of providing staff to help augment a project and can be relied upon to deliver one or more sub-systems independently.

  • Platinum - capable of taking on a major project or phase but have not yet delivered a project or phase independently of OneShield.

  • Diamond - capable of taking on a major project or phase independently and have delivered a live implementation or phase of an implementation independently within the past 12 months.

Individual certification is designed to assist carriers implementing OneShield products, and identify qualified resources for particular project roles, such as developer, lead developer, implementation manager, release engineer, application administrator, QA analyst, business analyst and project manager.

Certification for development partners will be re-evaluated each year and certified individuals will need to take a refresher course every two years to maintain certification. Training classes and certification exams are administered at the OneShield Offices in Westborough, Massachusetts and Gurgaon, India.
