Satyam & Lombardi collaborate on awards management processes for FETAC.

Lombardi®, a leader in business process management (BPM) software, today announced that Satyam Computer Services Ltd. is deploying its award-winning Teamworks® BPM software suite at The Further Education Training and Awards Council (FETAC) of Ireland. The deployment is part of a major contract awarded to Satyam to develop enterprise-class processes that support FETAC's core business needs.

FETAC makes approximately 100,000 awards every year to students completing a range of education and training programs within Ireland. Awards Management at FETAC consists of different business processes focusing on Awards Standards, Program Evaluation, Certification and Program Validation. Lombardi Teamworks forms the backbone of Satyam's solution.

"Our consulting-led approach enabled us to showcase a solution framework that will enable FETAC to achieve its business goals," said Sriram Krishnan, Satyam's senior vice president of Consulting and Enterprise Solutions. "Lombardi's robust product offering, coupled with our execution capabilities, will prove to be a winning combination."

Satyam, a leader in BPM consulting and services, will be responsible for end-to-end delivery of FETAC's new program. It will roll out a multi-tiered solution focused on Process Management, Business Intelligence and Document Management.

Satyam will initially use Teamworks to coordinate FETAC business processes that support Awards Management. Teamworks will improve process visibility and performance for FETAC, enhance collaboration among business stakeholders, and reduce cycle times. In the future, Teamworks will streamline core certification processes such as quality assurance and program validation.

"With Teamworks, Satyam can rapidly design and implement mission-critical business processes for FETAC, enabling the customer to benefit almost immediately," said Alan Godfrey, EVP and European general manager, Lombardi. "Lombardi is clearly playing a critical role in helping government agencies and companies of all sizes to manage, scale and improve their core business processes."

As the national awarding body for further education and training in Ireland, the Further Education and Training Awards Council (FETAC) gives people the opportunity to gain recognition for learning in education or training centres, in the work place and in the community. Programmes leading to FETAC awards are offered nationwide by a wide range of providers in diverse settings, including BIM, Fáilte Ireland (CERT), FÁS and Teagasc centres, VEC's, adult and community education and training centres, Institutes of Technology and in the workplace.

FETAC was set up as a statutory body on 11 June 2001 by the Minister for Education and Science under the Qualifications (Education & Training) Act, 1999. FETAC has responsibility for making awards previously made by BIM, Fáilte Ireland (CERT), FÁS, NCVA and Teagasc and has made over 500,000 awards to date.
