IT training outfit New Horizons has picked up a regional award from software powerhouse Oracle. The award is recognition of New Horizons’ role as an Oracle education partner in the Middle East. New Horizons, which has offices throughout the Middle East, was awarded the best achieving education partner award from Oracle — a prize that the recipient claims is much sought after by IT training companies in the Middle East. “Oracle sets very high standards for companies who provide training for its products and rightly so,” explained Nadeem Younis, senior VP at New Horizons. “Customers can only get full value from their software investment when they have been trained properly.” “Being one of the few software vendors that offers solutions for every business need, including database, middleware, business intelligence, applications and collaboration, Oracle needs to have confidence that its customers get full value from their software investment,” continued Younis. “That can only happen by ensuring the users are well trained.” US-based New Horizons Computer Learning Centres — the parent company of New Horizons in the Middle East — is one of the world’s largest training providers with more than 30,000 employees in nearly 300 locations across 48 countries. “The whole world revolves around technology these days, but it is amazing how many people buy package software off the shelf and then use only a fraction of the power that the programme provides, simply because they can’t understand the manual. There is no substitute for proper authorised training,” concluded Younis.
