Network Data Systems Recertifies Microsoft Gold Competency – 14 Years Running!

Today, Network Data Systems announced it achieved the status of Microsoft Gold Partner for the 14th consecutive year. By achieving a Gold competency, Network Data Systems demonstrates a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishes itself within the top 1% of Microsoft’s partner community. NDS’s certified competencies include OEM, Communications (Lync), Hosting, Server Platform and Midmarket Solution Provider.

Michael Doyle, NDS’ President and COO said, “We are pleased to have achieved Microsoft Gold certification for nearly a decade and a half, demonstrating our commitment to the Microsoft platform. As organizations continue to shift applications and infrastructure to the public, private and hybrid cloud, they find that our consultative approach, certification by key infrastructure companies such as Microsoft coupled with our NScope delivery methodology, enable them to minimize business risk.”

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 a Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They must also submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects as well as participate in annual customer satisfaction surveys. This process ensures that Network Data Systems continues to keep pace with constantly evolving Microsoft technologies.

Network Data Systems, some say, is the industry’s best kept secret, a world-class specialist in providing IT infrastructure professional and managed services. Headquartered in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg, IL, NDS is trusted to serve some of the nation’s largest, most complex corporations and government agencies.
