Microsoft Joins Hands With Acando To Launch An IT Initiative For Students

Over the years, Microsoft has shown some interest in engaging in various activities for different social causes. A few months ago, they decided to join hands with Acando GmbH to support students who are looking to start a career in IT. Acando GmbH is a reputed management and IT consultancy firm.

The collaborative programme will help students develop their IT skills such as software developing and programming. Microsoft believes that moulding the young talents today would be a great investment for IT innovations tomorrow. The collaborative event is called ‘Showtime: Microsoft Dynamics CRM in Practice’. The event was held at Flensburg University of Applied Sciences on December 12, 2013. More seminars and workshops would soon follow.

Acando GmbH has collaborated with Microsoft in the development of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Moreover, it has been encouraging students, who take special interest in Microsoft support technologies with their projects and IT education. During the past 10 years, Acando has held several conferences for students who have done project works on Microsoft technologies. This led to the idea of co-operation for knowledge transfer. The Redmond based software giant was ready to come on board, resulting in Showtime: Microsoft Dynamics CRM in Practice.

The core aims of ‘Showtime: Microsoft Dynamics CRM in Practice’ are to provide students with CRM projects, to instil technological knowledge in students and to offer relevant IT courses via Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance program. Microsoft plans to offer the program to about 50 business informatics students initially. The number of students who can avail the program will be extended in the coming years. Acando GmbH Team Manager Tim Bardenhagen said in a statement, "Career entry is possible either by developing individual business solutions or in project management."

In the wake of Microsoft’s decision to offer students IT oriented programs in collaboration with Acando, several firms in various parts of the world have expressed their interest in collaborating with such Microsoft support programs. Let us hope that the Redmond based software giant would come up with more such programmes in other parts of the world in the future.
