We have successfully completed our mission: Now, Portal Systems is also a certified Microsoft Gold Partner “Application Development”. We have thus been able to achieve another important goal for 2018 — the expansion of our Microsoft partner competence. By achieving the second Microsoft Gold Partner status this year, we have once again proven how important a high level of competence in the product team is to us.
In the coming year, we will now intensify our efforts to further expand our expertise in the areas of “Cloud” and “Messaging”. In our view, these clearly represent the growth markets of the coming years. And the cloud environment holds enormous potential for our customers.
Quality assurance through continuous training and development
At Portal Systems we place special emphasis on the training and further education of our colleagues. Training, education and certification are an important part of our corporate culture and strategy. In this way, we guarantee the usual high quality of our products and services in the future as well.
Thanks to our consistent training and further education program, we have been able to continuously expand our Microsoft competencies in recent years and months. By now, Portal Systems AG is Microsoft Gold Partner “Collaboration and Content”, Microsoft Gold Partner “Application Development“, Microsoft Silver Partner “Datacenter“ and Microsoft Silver Partner “Messaging”.
What does the Microsoft Gold partner status stand for?
Companies that are part of the Microsoft Partner Network can become Microsoft Certified Partners, either Silver or Gold. In order to qualify for this, companies and employees must meet different requirements. For example a certain number of successfully completed trainings and further education. Additionally, particularly pronounced product knowledge and correspondingly good performance in a business area are also included in the evaluation.
In principle, the award of Silver or Gold status confirms that these companies possess special competencies for the provision of quality solutions in one or more specific business areas. You can read here which requirements have to be fulfilled for which business area.
Update (September 2020): The re-evaluation of all Microsoft partner competencies mentioned in the text was successful, once again. In addition, since last year we are also a certified Silver Partner “Cloud Platform”.
