We are extremely pleased to have attained Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program. This allows us to clearly promote our expertise and relationship with Microsoft to our customers.

Coherent Solutions, a Minneapolis-based software development outsourcing firm with offices in Minsk, Belarus, today announced it has attained Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program for 2010.

The company earned competencies in Custom Development Solutions, Data Management Solutions, and Mobility Solutions. As a Gold Certified Partner, Coherent Solutions has demonstrated 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 market.

“We are extremely pleased to have attained 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 Robert Duff, COO. “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, Coherent 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 Custom Development Solutions Competency is designed for partners that specialize in demand generation, technical and sales learning opportunities, and early adopter initiatives across Microsoft developer technologies, with an emphasis on Microsoft Visual Studio. These partners deliver focused value for specific communities of developer partners through Application Infrastructure Development, Smart Client Development and Web Development.

The Data Management Solutions Competency is designed for partners that have proven their competency in end-to-end data-management reporting and analysis solutions based on Microsoft technologies, including Microsoft SQL Server, Windows Server, and Microsoft Office System client tools. These partners have also proven expertise in implementing solutions focused on delivering migration tools and services, database- administration tools and services, and performance tools using SQL Server technology.

Partners that attain the Mobility Solutions Competency have proven expertise in developing and deploying Windows Mobile-based solutions and applications using Microsoft products including Windows Mobile software for Pocket PC and Smartphone.

Our developer partners enable us to deliver high-quality solutions and applications to our customers,” said Joe Marini, Director, Development Tools Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp. “As the demand for applications built on the Microsoft platform continues to grow, there are more opportunities for providers of custom-developed applications than ever. The Custom Development Solutions Competency provides partners with a way to showcase their expertise delivering custom-built solutions to customers, to enhance partners’ revenue opportunities and positioning them for growth.”

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.
