The Center of Excellence in Advanced Software Technologies and Open Source (COEASTOS) is an important new program at PSEB, where the technical and managerial capacity of middle-tier HR of IT companies will be strengthened. This Center of Excellence solves the following three major problems of Pakistan's IT industry:
COEASTOS will offer classroom training sessions, seminars, and computer-based training material to IT professionals. These courses, seminars and material will be developed by the academia, universities, individual professionals and training organizations that have the capacity to offer highly-advanced training. Preference will be given to the academia and universities to develop this content for the IT industry. In cases where no local instructor can be found, a foreign trainer may be invited to conduct the required training program.
The project has the following aims:
This project will be a major leap forward in the capacity-building of HR within Pakistan's IT industry, and the introduction of open source software. PSEB will collaborate nationally and internationally with IBM and Red Hat for open source education. Speakers from the industry will share their work experience at seminars, knowledge-sharing interactive sessions, workshops, and conferences. This will result in the creation of a highly skilled resource pool matching international standards by offering designing and implementation of world-class IT models. Pakistan's IT industry will find itself in a much better position to compete in the global IT market.
This program is expected to be launched shortly
