San Diego, CA, November 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Innovativ Consulting Partners, a leading open source consultant and service provider for online solutions, has announced new alternatives for institutions interested in evaluating Kuali, yet do not have the technological infrastructure to initially install it.
Innovativ is offering two alternatives to the institution:
1. Kuali Readiness Assessment – to understand the impacts of Kuali with additional options to perform a proof of concept; and
2. A training plan to support educating an institutions resource in Kuali
“Our objective for these offerings is to have further encourage more institutions to investigate and evaluate Kuali with minimal obstacles. These alternatives provide the institution an opportunity to assess the impacts and entry points for Kuali solutions in their environment without re-deploying or making a hardware investment. – Tony DiSanza – Managing Director, Innovativ Consulting Partners.
Their Training Plan offers several different paths for an individual to gain experience with Kuali. They have partnered with several other training partners to deliver introductory java training. Upon satisfactory completion, they can offer boot camps and on-site instructor led sessions.
