Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 24, 2008
Global 360, a leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM) and optimization solutions, today announced it has maintained its Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program and achieved the ISV/Software solutions competency recognizing Global 360's expertise and impact in the technology marketplace. As a Gold Certified Partner since 2004, Global 360's latest renewal has once again demonstrated its expertise with Microsoft technologies and proven ability to meet customers' needs. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners receive a rich set of benefits, including access, training and support, giving them a competitive advantage in the channel.
Global 360's BPM Suite appeals to organizations needing broad support for human- and document-centric processes, and is unique in its ability to easily analyze processes that live outside the traditional BPM environment. By leveraging Global 360 solutions, customers are provided with the ability to solve their most difficult operational challenges, resulting in an unprecedented level of business optimization. Forrester Research recently named Global 360 a Leader in its December 2007 report, "The Forrester Wave™: Human-Centric BPM for Microsoft Platforms, Q4 2007."
"We are extremely pleased to have retained our Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program. This allows us to clearly promote our expertise and relationship with Microsoft to our customers," said Randi DiPrima, vice president of Global Partners. "The benefits provided through our Gold Certified Partner status will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we provide for customers."
As one of the requirements for attaining Gold Certified Partner status, Global 360 had to declare a Microsoft Competency. Microsoft Competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner's capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution. Each competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry.
"The ISV/Software Solutions Competency recognizes the skill and focus partners bring to a particular solution set. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners that obtained this competency have a successful record of developing and marketing packaged software based on Microsoft technologies. Solutions competencies are an important way for Microsoft to better enable ISVs to meet customer needs," said Walid Abu-Hadba, corporate vice president of the Developer & Platform Evangelism Group at Microsoft. "They allow ISVs to keep and win customers through their deep knowledge of solutions-based Microsoft platform technologies. Microsoft has a long history of working closely with ISV partners to help them deliver compelling solutions and applications to our mutual customers, and the Microsoft Competencies are an important step in continuing to enhance vital relationships with ISVs worldwide."
The Microsoft Partner Program was launched in October 2003 and represents Microsoft's ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The program offers a single, integrated partnering framework that recognizes partner expertise, rewards the total impact that partners have in the technology marketplace, and delivers more value to help partners' businesses be successful.
