Beijing (19 Jul 2017) – EPI, the world’s largest data centre course provider and International Best Practice Alliance (IBPA) announced strategic Partnership in China. IBPA will work with its members and member organisations to promote EPI’s world class series of certification-based data centre programs on data centre design/build, governance/operations and standards/compliance through its annual conferences, workshops, seminars and case studies.
According to Zhenpeng Sun, Executive Chairman of IBPA, “The demand for data centres in China is growing at such a tremendous pace that demand has exceeded supply. The supply growth is further impeded by lack of properly qualified data centre design and operations professionals which has caused a lot of challenges for the industry. As part of International IT management community, we are taking the lead to address this problem. We are introducing the most widely recognised high-quality data centre training and certification program in the world, offered by EPI. EPI’s data centre training will help to transfer global standard knowledge to the China data centre industry and provide the catalyst to rapidly align it to global standards and become an influential player in the global data centre market.”
According to Edward van Leent, Chairman & CEO for the EPI Group of Companies, “We have been in the data centre business for 30 years and have seen the rise of the data centre markets in many countries all over the world. China is at the cusp and the next 2-3 year will be critical for its transformation. It has to quickly develop a pool of skilled resources recognised globally as it is not only supporting local but also global demand. We are very excited to work with IBPA to enable this and to support IBPA in their efforts to select training partners in Shanghai and Beijing, as well as the major cities of Guangzhou and Shenzhen which have, and are expanding, data centre and telecommunications infrastructure.”
