Dayton, OH (Vocus) August 4, 2009
Sogeti USA , a premier provider of information technology services, announced today that it has been selected by Microsoft as the winner of the 2009 Microsoft US Deployment/Application Compatibility Factory (ACF) Partner of the Year Award.
The Microsoft Partner Program Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the past year. As one of seven global, Microsoft Application Compatibility Factory partners, Sogeti was able to work with several clients within the past twelve months to identify potential application compatibility obstacles that may occur when deploying a new operating system, such as Windows® Vista or Windows® 7. In addition, Sogeti also provided remediation services and deployment solutions to ensure a smooth transition. In the past year, Sogeti successfully completed more application compatibility testing and remediation engagements to prepare clients for deployment in the US than any other ACF partner.
"Sogeti is dedicated to helping customers prepare for and deploy Windows 7. When Sogeti joined Microsoft as a partner for ACF , we wanted to do more than just offer another service for Windows deployment; we wanted to offer a unique solution core to our strengths," said Darren Baker, Sogeti National Director of Microsoft Infrastructure Solutions.
According to Jane Boulware, Microsoft General Manager of Windows Client, US Business and Marketing Organization; "Partners are fundamental to Microsoft's success. Sogeti is clearly a leading partner in servicing our joint customer needs around desktop deployment, application compatibility assessment and remediation in the US by leveraging the Application Compatibility Factory (ACF) Proof of Concept program. We are looking forward to continue to work with Sogeti as we market Windows 7."
