For the fifth consecutive year, Ensim (News - Alert) Corporation has renewed its Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program in the critical, customer-required ISV/Software Solutions competency.
Ensim has developed a close working relationship with Microsoft and receives a rich set of benefits, including access, training and technical support for the latest versions of Active Directory, SharePoint, Office Communication Server (OCS), Exchange, and Microsoft (News - Alert) mobility solutions as a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. By automating key business policies with software supplied by Ensim, the company’s customers gain a cost-effective way to ensure the compliance and security of their Microsoft infrastructure, the company stated in a press release.
The Microsoft Partner Network is committed to serving the needs of its partners. And helping partners—and the company’s more than 160 million mutual customers worldwide, Microsoft claims.
“In today's competitive environment, it is more important than ever to utilize all available resources in order to offer the best products possible," said Scott Young (News - Alert), vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim. "Our Microsoft gold competency serves to further demonstrate Ensim's continued commitment to our worldwide customer base to provide the best possible solutions leveraging Microsoft technologies.”
Representing Microsoft's ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide, the Microsoft Partner Program was launched in October 2003. Recognizing partner expertise, rewarding the total impact that partners have in the technology marketplace, and delivering value that helps partners' businesses be successful, the program offers a single, integrated partnering framework. Microsoft's ISV/Software Solutions competency provides exclusive benefits and support to Microsoft Gold Certified Partners who specialize in developing and marketing packaged software solutions.
In January 2009, the company announced that it has doubled its user base in 2008 and now supports more than two million users. This growth, the company says, reflects their new focus on the enterprise market in addition to their significant growth in the tier one telecom service provider market. Ensim made several product announcements in 2008 including, the upgrade of the Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition.
