Infoblox Inc. today announced it has achieved a Gold Systems Management Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network. Expanding on its five-year history participating in Microsoft partner programs, this new, most recently achieved Competency illustrates Infoblox’s ability to meet the evolving needs of Microsoft customers in today’s dynamic business environment.
To earn a Microsoft Gold Competency, the highest level of commitment in a solution area, organizations must complete a rigorous set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, have the right number of Microsoft Certified Professionals, submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction by participating in an annual survey.
Infoblox pioneered the development of integrated IP Address Management (IPAM) appliances and helped build the commercial market for these solutions as evidenced by its more than 5,000 end customers and consistent recognition by industry analysts as the market leader. For the Microsoft community, Infoblox offers Trinzic IPAM for Microsoft that delivers powerful and centralized IPAM without requiring additional software to be installed on any of the related Microsoft domain name systems (DNS) or dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) servers.
In addition to offering the easy “clientless” deployment option, allowing enterprises to optimize existing technology investments, Infoblox’s Trinzic Enterprise integrated DNS, DHCP and IPAM appliance solution is fully compatible with the Microsoft Active Directory and Identity Management solutions and integrates easily into a Microsoft environment.
“As the first IPAM vendor to achieve the Gold Systems Management Competency, we further distinguish Infoblox from the competition as the IPAM market leader and demonstrate our commitment to serving the needs of customers relying on Microsoft-based solutions,” said Kevin Dickson, Vice President of Product Management at Infoblox. “Maintaining a close working relationship between Infoblox and Microsoft will help accelerate technological advancement and provide great value to Infoblox users and partner organizations.”
“The Microsoft Partner Network is designed to empower solution providers to succeed in today’s business environment. By achieving the prestigious Gold competency, participating companies are provided with a rich set of benefits, including increased customer visibility through branding 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 right resources to help a company develop the expertise customers demand in today’s 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 29 Microsoft competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner’s 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.
The Microsoft Partner Network is designed to equip organizations that deliver products and services based on the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they need to provide their customers a superior experience and outcomes.
