BELLEVUE, Wash.—April 27, 2016—Nintex today announced it has attained Microsoft’s Gold Cloud Platform competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world and distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.
To earn a Microsoft Gold level 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, meet a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment (for most Gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
“Achieving the Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform competency showcases Nintex’s expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft’s products and services,” said Nintex CTO Alain Gentilhomme. “We plan to continue to help drive partners and customers’ success by delivering the industry’s most advanced and integrated digital workflow automation software and cloud services.”
Nintex’s workflow automation platform is designed to be consistent wherever it is used, whether on-premises, in the cloud, or by way of some hybrid mix of the two. The Nintex Workflow Cloud™, unveiled at Nintex’s InspireX™ customer and partner conference in February 2016, is Azure-based and designed to be agnostic yet compatible with major application platforms and key data repositories and services like SharePoint, Office 365, Salesforce, SAP, NetSuite, Workday, Dropbox, ShareFile, OneDrive, Box, Adobe, Twitter, Yammer, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, LinkedIn, Facebook and DocuSign. Nintex’s user-defined workflow application platform unlocks the collaborative business value of all these capabilities.
“By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated a deep expertise and commitment that puts them at the top of our partner ecosystem,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners’ proficiency of the latest Microsoft technology is instrumental in helping customers continue to drive innovative solutions.”
Attaining the Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform competency demonstrates partner expertise in building, integrating and/or extending Windows-based applications and infrastructure solutions in the cloud using the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. With more than 57 percent of the Fortune 500 using Microsoft Azure, the Microsoft Cloud Platform competency can help partners take advantage of the growing demand for infrastructure and software as a service solutions. Equipped with exclusive training, partners can help customers deploy solutions that increase customer productivity and profitability.
