Observing that its recipients &quot;have not kept pace with acquiring the skills and expertise needed to address changing client needs, technology and market requirements,&quot; those same recipients were ordered into a one-day-a-week training program for 23 weeks (almost half a year). During that training interval, their pay would also be docked by 10 percent, perhaps splitting the difference with those employees of the 20 percent loss in productivity that would therefore ensue. What does this decision have to tell us, and those currently playing the IT game as professionals?<br /> </p>Wed, 01 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMT :: VMware Press Tops Best Seller List at VMworld!<p>Just in&nbsp;- VMware Press takes the top 5 spots on the best seller list at this year's <a href="">VMworld</a>!

That includes books, practice tests, simulators (where applicable) and more. Often, cert candidates must research these items on a one-off basis, which can be time-consuming and sometimes even frustrating. Pearson makes this easy for certain exams with a variety of bundled products for exam prep, and even offers substantial discounts on those bundles from time to time.<br /> </p>Wed, 12 Mar 2014 00:00:00 GMT :: A Trove of VMware Exam Profiles Right Here at PITC<p>In cruising over (PITC) this morning, I couldn't help but notice a grand collection of VMware exam profiles available to readers, with five recent entries posted over the past 10 months.
