ONENET EARNS GOLD!
OneNet becomes New Zealand’s first Microsoft Gold Hosting Partner
OneNet Limited, a market leader and pioneer in cloud computing, last month, became the first organisation in New Zealand to be recognised as a Microsoft Gold Hosting Partner.
Last year, Microsoft updated their Partner program, phased out their previous Microsoft Gold Certified program and transitioned to a new Microsoft Partner Network program. Under the new Partner Network program, Microsoft has introduced both Silver and Gold levels to each of 29 or so different competency areas. OneNet is the first organisation in New Zealand to achieve the Gold Partner level for Hosting.
Microsoft has raised the bar significantly to attain the new Gold level status. To earn a Microsoft Gold Competency, organizations must have the right number of Microsoft Certified Professionals having passed different certification exams specifically related to the competency, submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction by participating in an annual survey. OneNet has now met all of these stringent requirements including customer satisfaction levels significantly higher than the industry average.
Dr Michael Snowden, founder and Director of OneNet says “every year we invest in achieving Gold level status because we believe that it shows our commitment to stay on top of Microsoft-related technologies, helps us maintain a strong relationship with Microsoft, and serves as a differentiator between OneNet and other organisations late into the cloud computing market”.
