Ascent Technology steps up to gold with Microsoft


Ascent Technology has become a Microsoft Gold-certified Partner with Gold accreditation in the Data Platform Competency. This is yet another highlight for the company and follows on directly from its Data Platform Partner of the Year Award at the annual Microsoft Partner Network Awards 2011. The company is also a Silver-certified Partner in the Business Intelligence Competency.

The relationship between Ascent and Microsoft has been a long and successful one, and forms a key part of the value proposition that Ascent delivers to its clients. “We are really excited to be working so closely with Microsoft and, in light of our past successes with the company, the Gold certification adds yet another string to our bow in terms of the service we can give to our clients,” says Johan Lamberts, Ascent Technology’s MD.

Becoming a Gold-certified Data Platform Partner emphasizes Ascent’s expertise in and deep understanding of the Data Management arena. Moreover, this certification is particularly timely, as Ascent gears up to begin assisting its clients to upgrade to Microsoft’s new SQL Server 2012 platform.
