Our Elite TBMAs are continuing to make a name for themselves on the Apptio Community and in the TBM Industry as well. The updated ETBMA Curriculum. It will be a combination of what was on the ETBMA 2018 R12 requirements, and will incorporate competencies from the ETBMA 2019 Bridge process. The ETBMA 2019 will be available by the end of February 2019.
Individuals who hold Elite TBMA certification, are expected to be just that, Elite, the best of the best. An Elite TBMA not only has the technical skill to configure and troubleshoot Apptio, he or she has a value mindset - the ability to optimize a model and create an Apptio report, but also to find insights from that report and collaborate with the business to act upon those insights. Elite TBMAs should also have a strong foundation in Technology Business Management (TBM).
This year we've updated the ETBMA requirements for 2019 in both areas:
- TBMA Business Skill
