Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc., a leading national IT solutions integrator, is proud to announce that Senior Technologist Jerry J Petru has been awarded the prestigious status of Chartered Fellow by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. BCS is a leading industry body for IT professionals around the world. Chartered Fellowship is awarded following a rigorous assessment of professional competence by a panel of independent peers drawn from the United Kingdom, Australia, the U.S. and other countries.
As a Fellow of BCS, Petru has demonstrated authority, eminence and seniority in the IT profession, lived up to a code of professional ethics, and committed to continuous professional development. Chartered status means he has consistently performed at the highest level of professional competence as assessed against the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA), an independent competence model for IT practitioners worldwide. This status also requires periodical reassessment to ensure the holder’s continuous investment in professional development and practice at the highest levels in his profession, as well as upholding the standards of the BCS code of conduct.
“Being awarded the Chartered Fellowship is a true testament to Jerry’s knowledge and commitment to excellence in the IT industry,” said Chris Mierzwa, senior vice president of Servers, Storage and Converged Infrastructure at Sirius. “Jerry is very deserving of this prestigious distinction, and Sirius is fortunate to have him as a part of our technical team.”
“I’m so honored to be awarded such a prestigious achievement, and feel so humbled by the experience,” said Petru. “I’m thankful for the support of my loving wife, family and friends who were all instrumental in helping me achieve this goal… and also want to offer a special thank-you to my mentors: John Manasso and Phil Tasker from IBM, BCS Fellow Paul Jagger, and Sirius executives Chris Mierzwa and Joe Bast for their continued support.”
Petru currently manages the IBM Power portfolio of solution offerings at Sirius Computer Solutions, where he uses his broad-based experience to evaluate large corporate systems and identify operating systems and software issues between different hardware platforms. Over the past 15 years he has authored more than 30 different courses based on AIX, Security, Linux, Networking, SAN and Virtualization technologies.
