Fast Lane becomes Arrow’s first Global Training Alliance member

OTTAWA, ONTARIO (RPRN) 02/18/14 — IT training specialist Fast Lane and its subsidiary ITLS have entered into a cooperation with the worldwide IBM Global Training Provider Arrow Electronics Inc. As an Arrow Global Training Alliance member, Fast Lane will offer official IBM Systems and Software training courses via its international network, with the portfolio initially being available in 50 countries.

In July 2013, Arrow was selected as one of four IBM Global Training Providers for IBM’s Software Group and Systems and Technology Group. In the next six months, as part of the strategic agreement between Arrow and Fast Lane, the IBM Global Training Program is to be implemented in 130 countries through Arrow’s Global Training Alliance. The training portfolio, which both organisations are selling and delivering together, comprises more than 800 training courses for IBM Solutions in the fields of IT infrastructure and software. In particular, the training opportunities include:

  • IBM Systems training (i.e., IBM Power Systems, IBM PureSystems, IBM System Storage and Storage Networking)
  • IBM System x and BladeCenter
  • IBM System z
  • Cloud Computing
  • IBM Software training (i.e., Business Analytics, Information Management, Collaboration, Product Lifecycle Management, Rational, Tivoli and WebSphere)

“Education is a key element of our value-added services, enabling the market and the channel to support technology vendors with their product and solution readiness,” said Laurent Sadoun, president of the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and global services for Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions segment. “We look forward to our strategic cooperation with Fast Lane, a well established training provider serving ideal conditions to rollout our IBM Global Training program. Arrow, with support from its Global Training Alliance members, will soon complement the portfolio with a solution approach addressing critical business areas such as Big Data, mobility, security and cloud, leveraging its IBM strategic relationship in product businesses, combined with its unique network of complementary vendors in security, virtualization and mobility.”

Torsten Poels, CEO and chairman of the board at Fast Lane, comments: “The cooperation with Arrow strengthens our position as a leading IT training and consultancy company in the global market, as we can now offer our customers a tremendous portfolio of IBM Training courses, worldwide. We also benefit from various cross-selling and up-selling opportunities, thereby offering course participants a globally unparalleled training infrastructure featuring high-quality IT training and innovative training solutions.”
