Interactive Technologies and Softflow have been announced as Microsoft’s first Gold Certified Partners in the region. The companies are the first to receive accreditation, in E-commerce and Enterprise expertise respectively.
“We are especially pleased to announce the first two regional partners to have reached Gold Certified Partner accreditation in the region,” said Manoj Bhatia, partner manager at Microsoft GEM. “The program was launched based on tremendous customer and partner demand for more comprehensive certification standards. The objective is to utilise Microsoft’s global expertise and transfer this capability to its partners on a regional level, providing customers throughout the region with highly capable and specialised services that map with their business and IT requirements.”
The Gold Certified Partner program covers a wide range of areas, and provides in depth training for partners in different fields. Interactive Technologies of the UAE and Softflow of Lebanon had both proven their skills sets for solution implementation in their given fields.
“Microsoft has launched its e-commerce and enterprise systems gold certifications as well as business intelligence (BI) and knowledge management (KM) certifications, “ added Bhatia. “We are keen on increasing our Gold Certified Partners in the coming period to ensure that Microsoft customers anywhere in the region have easier access to top of the line Microsoft expertise, while benefiting from the advantages of working with globally recognised and certified Microsoft professionals.”
