AgreeYa Solutions Recertified As Microsoft Gold Partner For 5th Consecutive Year

Folsom, CA (Feb 1, 2010) – AgreeYa Solutions, a California-based technology solutions provider with global operations in seven countries, recently announced that it has been recertified as a Microsoft Gold Partner for 2010. This marks the company’s fifth consecutive year of achieving Microsoft’s highest level of partnership, demonstrating AgreeYa’s continued excellence in working with Microsoft-based technologies.

Microsoft Gold Certified Partners meet a higher set of criteria than other levels of the Microsoft Partner Program, including enhanced certification and a portfolio of real-world customer references, and are therefore identified as the most skilled partners in their specific application and solution areas. AgreeYa has achieved Gold Partner status across five solution areas:

  • Networking Infrastructure Solutions
  • Data Management Solutions
  • Information Worker Solutions – Portals and Collaboration Specialization
  • Mobility Solutions
  • Business Intelligence

AgreeYa’s Microsoft Practice continues to grow its team of experts with strong experience in Microsoft tools and technologies, including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS). Innovative, sustainable solutions are developed through AgreeYa’s Microsoft iLab (information technology research lab) where they use the knowledge, resources, and access to cutting-edge technology of Microsoft to perform extensive research and development. The resulting frameworks and reusable components developed in AgreeYa’s iLab help them to better understand the technology and accelerate the delivery process for their customers. Leveraging their Microsoft iLab and global delivery model, AgreeYa has delivered many successful, large-scale projects implementing MOSS for customers worldwide.

AgreeYa’s Microsoft experts and MOSS capabilities are cross-utilized in their Web and Collaborative Computing Practice, which focuses on portal development with collaboration and social networking tools. Developed by this practice, a SharePoint Portal Appliance and Quick Start Service are offered to customers looking to jump-start their collaboration initiative with a quick deployment of SharePoint. A 2-day Quick Start Service includes requirements review, readiness assessment, MOSS design and installation, and administration orientation.

In addition to their SharePoint Appliance and Quick Start Service, AgreeYa’s Web and Collaborative Computing Practice will be launching a new collaborative computing solution based on Microsoft’s SharePoint 2010 software. This new Social Platform or Social Suite will address the needs of social computing for the enterprise. The product will give customers a rapid, out-of-the-box, intuitive user interface solution using the native SharePoint features including Wikis, Blogs, Discussions, Profiles, Communities, Tagging, Analytics, and simple administration for Web and Mobile. It will be built on Microsoft’s upcoming SharePoint 2010, which is expected to be the largest software product launch in Microsoft history.

Bob Hoover, Web and Collaborative Computing Practice Lead, said “We are excited about our continued partnership with Microsoft. Our deep industry experience with enterprise social networking tools has enabled us to bring a ground-breaking solution to market that will accelerate the use of a social suite for any organization currently using or considering SharePoint 2010. Organizations will enhance their employee productivity through ease of use and lower costs by standardization on the SharePoint platform.”
