Going Gold in the Cloud: SaaSplaza Named a Gold Hosting Partner for Microsoft
The Company’s Focus on Dynamics ERP and CRM Solutions in the Cloud to Increase in 2013
Amstelveen, The Netherlands, February 21, 2013—Cloud Dynamics leader SaaSplaza cements its reputation as the worldwide leader in Dynamics in the Cloud by becoming a Gold Hosting Partner of Microsoft, one of only 74 in the world, and one of the very few specializing in Dynamics ERP and CRM solutions.
“Going Gold is not what it once was,” says SaaSplaza CEO, Herb Prooy. “Microsoft phased out their old Gold certification programs, introducing ramped up-requirements this past year, and SaaSplaza is one of the very few Dynamics hosters to achieve Gold status. We and our growing network of Partners are very happy about this achievement.”
To become a Gold Partner with Microsoft, an organization must have demonstrated the highest, most specialized ability and commitment in a specific business solution area. To become a Gold Partner in hosting, an organization must tackle many more specifics, such as: having a number of Microsoft Certified Professionals with advanced credentials on staff (e.g., MCSE in server infrastructure, MCA in SQL Server, MCSE in Business Intelligence, etc.); meeting stringent revenue goals within the hosting space; having relevant customer cases and a satisfied partner/customer base; among many other competency requirements.
In addition to being a Gold-Certified Partner in Hosting, SaaSplaza is also a Silver-Certified Partner in Management and Virtualization and a Silver-Certified Midmarket Solution Provider, which further adds to the company’s ability to completely and consistently deliver Microsoft Dynamics solutions to any size customer via the Cloud.
“With this awarding of Gold in Hosting, our new data center in Singapore, as well as our recently renewed SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 reports for the seventh year in a row [prior to 2006, SAS-70 was the standard] SaaSplaza is lending ample proof to our claim of being the industry leader,” says Prooy.
SaaSplaza is #1 worldwide in Cloud Dynamics, with 15 years of experience, and data centers and staff in Asia, EMEA, and the US, and hundreds of Partners and deployments in nearly 60 countries. NAV, AX, GP, CRM, and ISV solutions run easily and consistently on SaaSplaza's infrastructure, built entirely on the Microsoft stack. Visit www.saasplaza.com for more information.
