We have already achieved three accreditations from the Microsoft Partner Network: Silver Data Analytics, Silver Data Platform and the Gold Application Integration. We have kicked off 2017 in the best possible way by achieving the Gold competency in Microsoft Application Development!
In total, there are over 64,000 partners in the Microsoft Corporation’s channel, but only 5 percent of partners (worldwide!) are able to distinguish themselves with a competency, and therefore attain a high degree of proficiency.
Organisations have to undergo a really rigorous set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise and to earn the Microsoft Gold competency. These firms need to employ the right number of Microsoft Certified Professionals, submit customer references and participate in annual surveys which will show their commitment towards customer satisfaction.
Becoming a Microsoft Gold Partner represents a number of things. It includes consistent capability, expertise and commitment. A company’s competency level is judged on a skills assessment, performance and certified IP tested products.
Achieving a Microsoft Gold in Application Development is a massive boost for us in 2017. We were fortunate enough to be awarded it as we begin celebrating our 30th year in business. Action development really encompasses exactly what we are good at – developing successful and robust systems!
