Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) March 18, 2010
AvePoint, the leading provider of infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced OBS is the first of its partners in Australia to complete the AvePoint Certified Expert (ACE) training program. As a result of this training, OBS, Australia's Premier SharePoint specialist, is fully qualified to recommend, deploy, and configure AvePoint's SharePoint infrastructure management solutions, and can subsequently provide its clients with comprehensive consulting on AvePoint technologies.
"We're very excited to have OBS certified through our ACE Program," said Garth Luke, Vice President of Sales and General Manager of AvePoint Australasia. "OBS can provide clients with comprehensive, technical guidance about the industry's most powerful SharePoint infrastructure management tools."
The ACE program provides AvePoint partners with in-depth training on AvePoint product installation and configuration, as well as how to fully leverage its tools for SharePoint data protection, administration, compliance, migration, reporting, and storage optimisation. Partners seeking ACE certification must attend a series of live and web-enabled training sessions, and pass both an online and oral examination. The more comprehensive Technical-ACE certification demands additional technical training and requires the participant to deliver a technical presentation to AvePoint engineers.
OBS consultant Timothy Boettcher was the first to complete AvePoint's training program in Australia, receiving the Technical-ACE certification on Friday, February 19. In addition to learning about DocAve's 24 independently deployable modules, Timothy also received one-on-one training from AvePoint's engineers.
"OBS is delighted that we have achieved AvePoint ACE Certification. This certification allows us to provide our customers with updated and best-practice consulting on AvePoint technologies. OBS, as Australia's Premier SharePoint specialist, helps organisations get value from SharePoint through business focused products and solutions. We are committed to continually provide our customers thought leadership on the SharePoint platform, including infrastructure management software solutions such as AvePoint's product suite." said Andy Neumann, General Manager, OBS.
