Optimation Gains Microsoft Gold For Web Development

Posted by Amanda McVitty on 2 May 2012

Optimation has attained a Gold Web Development competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study) and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Optimation has an outstanding track record in delivering web-enabled business solutions across a wide range of public and private sector organisations, with recent work including projects for Resene, Exeed, Capability NZ, and the Insurance Claims Register. The achievement of Gold competency reflects the company’s deep expertise across the entire software development life cycle and the value Optimation brings to customer engagements. It also recognises the commitment of our people to continually enhancing and extending their skills and knowledge.

“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”
