Microsoft Corp. has launched a tool for assessing the skills of Information Technology professionals, and will roll it out to Certified Partners for Learning Solutions Inc. "Having the ability to assess each individual's skills relative to their job role or projects they may work on is critical in managing their skills development and the success of these projects," said Nigel Euling, product manager at Microsoft Learning. The tool is underpinned by InfoBasis's Enterprise Skills Infrastructure, and it will be hosted on Microsoft's website. By the end of 2004 Microsoft hopes to sign up over 200 partners.
