Mendix, developer of the leading agile business application platform, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Calco-IT, a Netherlands-based information technology recruitment firm that specializes in training, coaching and placement of IT professionals and specialists. This partnership is slated to facilitate the training of candidates, specialized in the Mendix Agile Business Platform.
“With our platform, organizations with extremely complex IT environments can create more fully tailored solutions,” said Derek Roos, CEO of Mendix. “Offering a resource for candidates who specialize in the Mendix Agile Business Platform, will enable companies to create and modify applications, in a fraction of the time it used to take, which will ultimately have a positive affect on their bottom-line.”
Calco-IT specializes in medium and large international companies with demanding IT environments, and will now be able to provide their client-base with IT professionals who specialize in Mendix.
“This partnership will enable us to better serve more clients,” states Paul Oostindie, account manager, at Calco-IT. “Our clients are increasingly faced with big challenges in modifying their current IT environment. Mendix enables Calco-IT to extend its services, and we see great potential for applying this technology in the healthcare sector, where many developments are taking place, such as in Electronic Patient Records and the integration of existing legacy system. Mendix specialists will allow companies in all sectors to make swift adjustments to solutions, because the technology requires no hard coding.”
Calco-IT specializes in training, coaching and placement of both young and experienced IT professionals who are skilled in software development, application management, and functional management and quality assurance. The company recruits candidates and graduate alumni at the college and university level, and guides them throughout a two year course of training. After successful completion of the two-month intensive training in both general IT and a specialization such as Mendix, the candidates are presented to and placed with leading organizations that offer valuable career opportunities. These candidates are then supervised by Calco-IT coaches, at which time the client may offer full time employment. For more information, please visit http://www.calco-it.nl.
