Theta Secures Gold Business Intelligence and Gold Data Platform Microsoft Competencies

Theta has been recognised for their “best-in-class” ability and commitment towards meeting customers evolving needs, and has been awarded the prestigious combination of Gold Business Intelligence and Gold Data Platform Microsoft Competencies. The title positions Theta in the top one percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

Theta CEO, Rob Lee, says the company aims to deliver solutions which enable customers to accelerate their business success on a leading technology platform.

“These Microsoft competencies acknowledge our expertise and commitment to an enduring technology investment by both our customers and Theta.”

Equipped with exclusive training and the latest software and support, Theta provides their customers with solutions using Microsoft SQL Server 2012, Microsoft Visio 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 to provide data warehousing and database solutions using cost-effective, flexible and high-performance applications.

Microsoft Competencies are awarded to Partners who have been successfully tested on their levels of technology expertise. Gold Competencies designate certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. Partners are required to submit customer references, demonstrating successful projects, past technology and sales assessments. In addition, Partners implement a yearly customer satisfaction study, and for many competencies, meet a revenue commitment.

Chris Ichter, Small, Midmarket and Partners Director at Microsoft New Zealand, said the Partners involved show a true commitment to meeting customer technology needs.

“By achieving a portfolio of competencies, partners demonstrate a deeper level of expertise and consistent capabilities on the latest Microsoft technology.”

The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and, with 640,000 Microsoft partners in their ecosystem, to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
