Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 15, 2013

CliIntel today announced it has achieved a Gold BI Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network for its IGNITE business intelligence solution, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft customers evolving needs in todays dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft gold competency, organizations must complete a rigorous set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction by participating in an annual survey.

IGNITE is CliIntels business intelligence tool that transforms their clients data into actionable analytics that are used at every level of the organization to align performance targets and strategic initiatives. Companies using the IGNITE tool see positive ROI in as little as 76 days. CliIntel held the Microsoft silver BI competency since 2009, and had been working to achieve gold competency since that time.

Achieving the gold BI designation from Microsoft had been one of our top objectives for a couple of years, explained CliIntel CTO, Paul Ousterhout. This represents a significant step for CliIntel and differentiates us from the competition. We fought through hundreds of collective hours to achieve this competency level, and are very pleased to have achieved this highly-regarded designation.

The Microsoft Partner Network is designed to empower solution providers to succeed in todays business environment. By achieving the prestigious gold competency, participating companies are provided with a rich set of benefits, including increased customer visibility and accessibility, training and support, said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. We are proud to put forth a program that provides the resources to help a company develop the expertise customers demand in todays competitive market and also provides the community and infrastructure that can connect them to one another, lowering costs for all parties.

The Microsoft gold competency signifies to the market that a company has demonstrated the highest level of skill and achievement within a given technology specialization. All of the Microsoft competencies are designed to help differentiate a partners specific technology capabilities, helping customers find solution providers quickly and easily. Each competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the industry. To achieve a competency, partners must demonstrate and maintain a significantly more rigorous set of requirements than are required for other competencies.
