y achieving a Silver Competency, organisations have proven their expertise in specific technology areas, placing them among the top 5 percent of Microsoft partners worldwide,' said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp.
To earn a Microsoft Silver Competency, partners must complete a set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, submit customer references and employ the required number of Microsoft Certified Professionals who are skilled on current technology relevant for the competency.
Without knowing it we were already halfway to achieving Microsoft Silver Partner status through our training development scheme.
Personal and professional development is a very important part of working at Zolv. We have structured training and personal development programmes that support a range of promotional paths; incorporating a mix of in-house and external training solutions, with subscriptions to some of the best online training and development facilities.
Over half of our development team have earned Microsoft development certifications. To complete the qualification for Silver partner we had to sit licensing exams and collect a number of testimonials from happy customers - something we are proud to say was an easy task.
So Zolv is now a Microsoft Partner: Silver Application Developer.
And what does that mean to you? I guess it means Bill vouches for us!
