IDV Solutions Achieves Three Microsoft Gold Competencies

Bookmark and Share
Tuesday, December 3rd 2013

IDV Solutions today announced that it has attained a Gold Application Development competency, a Gold Business Intelligence competency, and a Gold Data Platform competency, 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.

IDV Solutions is the developer of Visual Fusion data visualization software technology. Visual Fusion is a platform for building map-based solution applications that organizations can use to increase strategic insight and make informed decisions. With Visual Fusion, organizations can rapidly craft powerful visualizations that unite data from multiple sources and systems on an interactive map, timeline, charts, and graphs.

Visual Command Center , built on the Visual Fusion platform, is physical security and risk visualization software (PSRV). Visual Command Center empowers organizations to protect their people, facilities, operations, and events. When a risk is detected near an asset or employee location, Visual Command Center automatically generates an alert. Security operators use powerful visualization, filtering, and data query tools to rapidly assess the threat, and act to mitigate risk.

“IDV Solutions is proud to have again received recognition for Visual Fusion and Visual Command Center though multiple gold Microsoft competencies,” said Ian Clemens, Chief Technology Officer. “Through our close partnership with Microsoft and its products, together we've delivered operations-based data visualization solutions to government customers and many of the world’s most recognizable companies.”

"By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Jon Roskill, 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.”

Attaining the Microsoft Business Intelligence competency demonstrates partner expertise in designing, developing and implementing business intelligence solutions that allow customers to monitor, analyze and plan business performance based on actionable business insight. Earning the Application Development competency helps partners differentiate themselves as a trusted expert to their customers through development and deployment of commercial or custom applications.

The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and, with 640,000 Microsoft partners in their ecosystem, to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
