Ordina gains Microsoft Gold Partner status for Business Intelligence

Ordina has been awarded Microsoft Gold Partner status in Business Intelligence (BI). Microsoft awards this status to companies with extensive know-how of Microsoft SQL Server, Integration Services, Analysis Services and Reporting Services. In addition, Gold Partners must have demonstrated their expertise in successful Business Intelligence implementations. The newly awarded status is a major boost to Ordina’s services in the field of BI.

“Ordina’s status as Microsoft Gold Partner in Business Intelligence is recognition of our know-how and expertise in the field of Microsoft BI,” says director Mark van Berkel of VisionWorks, the Ordina division specialising in BI solutions. “Microsoft BI services are a key component of our BI portfolio. This is why we have invested heavily in the expansion of our services and know-how in the field of Business Intelligence. One of the major advantages of Gold Partner status is the closer cooperation with Microsoft. This gives our clients the assurance that they are dealing with an experienced BI partner that also has access to all the expertise Microsoft has on offer.”

The Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status is the highest status Microsoft awards and is a globally recognised quality certification. The fact that Ordina has won this accolade is a clear demonstration that the company meets all the strict requirements Microsoft sets for this highest level of certification. The main requirements include having sufficient numbers of certified professionals in the workforce, the submission of sufficient references undersigned by clients and high enough levels of customer satisfaction, measured in an independent customer satisfaction survey.
