Alliance Enterprise, Inc. (Alliance), today announced it has attained three Gold competencies in Application Development, Cloud Platform and Datacenter, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Alliance dominates the National Vocational Rehabilitation market as the #1 provider of case management, analytics and Cloud Services for State Agencies and Tribal Nations in the United States. “Microsoft Gold Application Development, Cloud Platform and Datacenter competencies showcase our expertise and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft products and platforms. With a focus on providing first-class managed services and applications, this partnership allows us to leverage Microsoft solutions to produce the best services and experiences for our customers,” said Sven Akerman Jr, Chief Technology Officer. “We plan to increase our customers’ success by serving as technology advisors for their business demands.”

“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.” The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
