The Association of Enterprise Architects (AEA), the leading professional organisation for Enterprise Architects will provide its members with verifiable digital representations of their accomplishments.
The firm has partnered with Acclaim, a product of Pearson, to launch an Open Badges programme, which will empower Enterprise Architecture professionals, and especially the Association’s members, to clearly and consistently promote their professional accomplishments online.
Allen Brown, CEO, said: “AEA is committed to providing its members and other EA professionals with the tools necessary to achieve their professional goals. Accomplishments are recognised and respected globally; however, we understand that as an Enterprise Architect, communicating your accomplishments in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging.”
The AEA badging platform provides:
- A web-enabled version of the badge-holder’s achievements that can be shared online, via LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, or embedded within an email, website or resume/CV.
- A way to combine badges earned from participation in relevant activities, to provide a more comprehensive, verifiable background for potential employers.
- Labor market insights that connect a participant’s skills to potential jobs.
“Digital badges give Enterprise Architects the platform to share their abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real-time. Badges for attending or presenting at conferences, joining chapters, exam success, showcasing other skills and affiliations are highly relevant to giving a more complete picture of a person.
“Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what was required to earn each credential – and what each individual is capable of,” concluded Brown.
