San Jose, California – February 21, 2014:
Nagarro, Inc. , a high-end technology services firm specializing in strategic software and IT projects, today announced it has attained a Gold Collaboration and Content 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. Nagarro adds this certification to its previously earned achievement of Gold Application Development competency.
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 must also 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.
Nagarro’s extensive experience using Microsoft SharePoint to deliver creative, complex solutions provided a strong foundation for Microsoft gold certification in Collaboration and Content. Nagarro’s dedicated SharePoint Center for Technical Excellence employs more than 140 SharePoint professionals and has delivered successful projects to global leaders across many diverse industries. In addition to deep experience in all versions of SharePoint, including SharePoint Online/Office 365, Nagarro also has expertise in a variety of SharePoint-based third-party tools and holds certifications in numerous SharePoint modules.
“Nagarro’s approach is strongly rooted in Microsoft technologies, with our first gold certification in Application Development competency having been earned several years ago. This addition of Microsoft Gold Collaboration and Content competency enhances our services offering and showcases our deep expertise in the designing and delivering powerful, scalable SharePoint solutions,” said Vishal Gauri, President, Nagarro North America. “Our SharePoint methodology, along with our proprietary tools and accelerators, allow our clients to achieve cost-effective implementation and benefit from the latest advances in SharePoint technology.”
“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, 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 Collaboration and Content competency demonstrates partner expertise in offering Microsoft SharePoint technology based solutions to customers that meet organizational collaboration and content needs, help customers maximize efficiencies and take advantage of opportunities, such as business value consulting, change management, architectural design, digital asset management, and Web design and development, all of which can help develop a more profitable business. The Microsoft Collaboration and Content competency can help partners take advantage of the growing services opportunity around SharePoint by demonstrating their ability to offer solutions that connect teams, improve access to information, and increase productivity.
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.
