A picture, as the old adage goes, is worth a thousand words, and Sibers’ expertise is not an exception to the rule.
For example, a prospective employee might tell us he’s the world’s leading A1 specialist. But rather than read a long explanation or sit through a lengthy Skype call, we’ll just ask for a copy of his diploma. This is how IT certification works.
Along the same lines, while written affirmation of our clients’ happiness (see our testimonials) and the successful solutions we’ve delivered to them (see our case studies) are certainly useful for verifying Sibers’ expertise, we believe that industry recognitions and professional certifications are the best proof of our acumen, both for ourselves internally and for current/prospective clients. When it comes to demonstrating our value, nothing matches peer recognition/certification.
We invite you to review this list of our independent recognitions and certifications. If you have any questions regarding our qualifications, please contact us.

After almost a year-long review, Sibers was approved as a Contributing Member by the Organization of Independent Software Vendors (OISV). This is a huge deal for us!
Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE Programmer
Our Java developers have certificates verifying their Java SE expertise (SE stands for Standard Edition). Standard Edition is the wellspring, the root if you will, that feeds all related Java Specifications.
Standard Edition is a keystone, something like a root, feeding all the related Java Specifications.
To become an Oracle-Certified Java Programmer, one must pass an exam consisting of seven sections and 60 questions, the correct answers to which require deep understanding of Java syntax and structure, as well as expertise in many special programming issues. Not surprisingly, passing this exam proves that a programmer possesses the essential chops for Java database-building, middleware, and applications.
