Citrix Application Performance Management
Acceleratio, a provider of application performance management software for Citrix and Microsoft (News - Alert) solutions, has achieved Gold Application Development competency and a Silver Collaboration and Content competency for its ability to meet the needs of Microsoft customers.
Acceleratio specializes in developing high quality applications that make daily tasks easier and save time for SharePoint, Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services and Citrix admins across the globe, while increasing productivity through innovative software. The company also provides consulting services.
Earning Microsoft Application Development competency helps partners differentiate themselves as a trusted expert to their customers through development and deployment of commercial or custom applications built using core Microsoft technologies like Windows Server and Windows 8 operating systems, the Windows Azure platform, Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 development system, Microsoft BizTalk Server and emerging cloud-based and Web business models.
“These Microsoft competencies demonstrate our strong commitment to delivering high quality applications for our customers.” said Toni Frankola, Acceleratio CEO, in a statement. “It is our continuous mission to further enhance our products to help our customers meet their business challenges.”
To earn Microsoft competency, partners must successfully complete exams after which they become Microsoft Certified Professionals. Further partners must also submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
For gold competencies, partners must also implement a yearly customer satisfaction study and, for many competencies, meet a revenue commitment.
Acceleratio’s solutions address the evolving needs of customers in today’s dynamic environment. The company is also committed to focusing on in-demand, business solution areas. The company’s portfolio of solutions that earned the company Microsoft competency ensures the stipulated level of technology expertise and staffing capacity.
“By achieving a portfolio of competencies, partners demonstrate deep expertise and consistent capability on the latest Microsoft technology,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft. “These partners show true commitment to meeting customer technology needs today and into the future.”
