The world of IT is a dynamic one and it is crucial that the education programmes stay connected to reality. The IT professional of the future is in school NOW. A big change for IT professionals today is the role of the Business. Business users want and need more control over processes in the organization, new (IT) trends need to be adopted by IT quickly. And there is the need for continuous development on existing systems to fulfil new requirements. To stay connected to “reality” Zuyd Hogeschool has an impressive list of organizations to collaborate, Bizzomate is one of them!
For future IT professionals it is crucial to understand that traditional methods for software development no longer match with the world of the modern product or process owner. The business is in control and IT has an (important) supporting role. In collaboration Business and IT deliver spot-on software solutions more quickly. For this reason the IT programme of Zuyd adopts the concept of Rapid Application Development as opposed to more traditional development methods like coding. And this is one of Bizzomate’s specialties!
