BICSI, an association supporting the information technology systems (ITS) industry, and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), a trade association representing the global information and communications technology (ICT) industries, have agreed to renew their friendship.

“Renewing the TIA/BICSI friendship agreement strengthens the
relationship between our two associations that has been forged over the
past several years,” said TIA president Grant Seiffert. “Working closely
together enables us to continue being as technologically innovative as
possible as the ICT industry evolves, while creating new business
opportunities for our members.”

official signing. Both groups have been engaged in similar activities,
addressing mutual interests in information communications technologies
and trends, including standards, certifications, knowledge transfer and
global technology advancement.

The two organizations say they plan to engage in a variety of
cooperative activities.
