Welcome to Criticalys

We may not have a magic wand but we surely have a magic Band.

Criticalys was started by 2 visionary ladies in Dec 2013 with a view to provide simplified solutions to the customers while absorbing the complexity of technology as an enabler behind the scenes.

Criticalys might have taken birth recently but the leadership who founded and running it, is very experienced and passionate. Carries a very innovative Vision and the skills for true translation of it into productive Products and Services.

The team comprises of people from premier Colleges like IIT, NIT and who are alumni of organizations like GE, Microsoft, Cognizant, Panasonic et al.

We want to create exponential value for all stakeholders by following basic and fundamental principles of providing a solution without looking for short cuts. We do not celebrate mediocrity. It is a humble statement. If we celebrated mediocrity we would be satisfied too quickly for even small achievements and couldnt think beyond to produce quality. We do not glorify any technology. We look at it as an enabler with focus always on the customer and his need!

Criticalys is a VMedu, a global accreditor and training company partner

Our core philosophy is to redefine things back to their original form, may it be services or product development. We work with our customers with a partnership mindset unlike customer-vendor mindset, fulfilling and going beyond contractual obligation which helps us explore every possible avenue for the customer towards better value. We will not give to our customers what we would not have wanted it for ourselves if we were the customers. It is this philosophy that enables us to explore every avenue and push the boundaries for the extra value.

Approach and Philosophy

Our core philosophy is to redefine things back to their original form, may it be services or product development. We work with our customers with a partnership mindset unlike customer-vendor mindset, fulfilling and going beyond contractual obligation which helps us explore every possible avenue for the customer towards better value.

We will not give to our customers what we would not have wanted it for ourselves if we were the customers. It is this philosophy that enables us to explore every avenue and push the boundaries for the extra value.

Giving Back

Giving back is not a marketing tool for us. It is a personal, organizational and business obligation that we sincerely feel to reciprocate and give back to the communities which enabled us, directly or indirectly and to make our achievement more fulfilling and complete. A part of our earnings always goes to charity work of various kinds. We would not like to display it but would love to share with our customers if they want to know.

Disclaimer: Please note that this is meant to be a general guidance. Some of the information may have changed due to any latest updates. If you need to know the exact and more information, please visit the respective websites.
Certification Accreditation Bodies:
These are the ones who own and actually award you the certification after you pass the exam. Let us call them Owners for the sake of simplifying the explanation. Usually Owners do not provide direct training (Meaning training the candidates themselves directly) as a matter of principle because they own the content and questions.
Examination Institutes (EIs):
These are organizations which would administer exam process of each certification for which they are authorized by the Owners. There could be more than one Examination Institute to increase the global reach also to solve any geo-specific aspects like Language, Time Zone etc. The EIs may or may not provide direct training.
Accredited or Approved Training Organizations (ATOs):
EIs (and in some cases Owners can) permit some organizations to provide training after assessing and evaluating their training methodologies, process etc. The ATOs may provide direct training as well as through their approved training partners.
Authorized Training Partners (ATPs) to ATOs:
ATOs will partner with ATPs and authorize them to provide training so that their training reaches larger population.
Some examples

PMP Certification: (Please visit www.pmi.org for more info)

PMI owns and awards this certification

PMI administers the PMP exam through Prometric.

PMI authorizes many Registered Educational Providers (REPs) like our training partner ( VMEdu Inc. through its brand www.PMstudy.com ) after they satisfy the PMI criteria to become REP and these REPs provide training.

These REPs could further partner with some ATPs who can provide their training like our company www.criticalys.com

PRINCE2 and ITIL: (Please visit www.axelos.com for more information)

Axelos owns and awards these certifications

Axelos administers the PRINCE2 and ITIL exam through its EIs like APMG, EXIN, PEOPLECERT (you can get the complete list of approved EIs on the Axelos website) etc. You have to pay to these EIs and take the exam after the training.

EIs accredit many ATOs and our training partner - Example: Brand of VMEdu inc, www.PROJstudy.com and www.MyITstudy.com

These ATOs could further partner with some ATPs like our company - www.criticalys.com

Training and Exam fee are different. Training fee goes to the training organization and exam fee goes to the EI. Sometimes the ATO or ATP might collect the fee together and help the candidate with taking the exam. ATO will be paying the exam fee to the EI in any case.

SCRUM Developer Certification (SDC), SCRUM Master Certification (SMC), SCRUM Product Owner Certification (SPOC), AGILE Expert Certification (AEC):(Please visit www.vmedu.com for more information)
