Prosperity 24.7, Jersey’s fastest growing consultancy business became the first company in the Channel Islands to achieve success in the latest HP certificate this week.
Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Jake Foster earned the newly released HP Master ASE Storage Solutions Architect qualification, this ensures that he has attained his HP certifications continuously over the last 14 years, which in our opinion makes Jake a ‘legend’ amongst his peers.
This latest achievement followed an intense week-long course in the UK, hosted by HP. Lee Pirouet and James Russell also attended from Prosperity 24.7 and are looking forward to sitting their exams very shortly so we hope to announce a ‘hat-trick’ fairly soon!
This latest qualification demonstrates Jake’s ability to design extremely complex, multi-site (Enterprise level) storage solutions, taking into consideration the client’s wider business requirements. In addition Jake is recognised for his ability to implement an end to end solution including the need for backups and archival, a critically important skill in light of recent legislation on data retention.
Jake said that this exam was one of the hardest he has ever taken. ‘The Master ASE level exams are designed to test your experience on the job, not just the training that goes behind this. My experience in deploying HP Enterprise class solutions for my clients was essential in enabling me to achieve this level of exam success and our continued success at Prosperity 24.7 in delivering successful projects.’
Both Lee and James are due to take their upgrade exams shortly and Prosperity 24.7 is fully supporting them in their endeavours to gain the same level of achievement as Jake.
‘Success in this qualification is an excellent achievement and adds to Jake’s extensive list of relevant qualifications. This typifies our investment in employees and demonstrates the commitment we have to personal development within the company’ commented Chris Clark, Managing Director. ‘This enables our industry-experts to keep ahead of the game in the ever changing technology arena, it gives us the knowledge and experience to propose the most suitable solutions to our clients, and likewise provide comfort to our clients who know that they are in the safest hands with recognised experts in their field’.
