IDV Solutions achieves three Microsoft Gold Competencies

Enterprise Risk Visualization software firm demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through proven technology success and customer commitment


Lansing, MI — November 11, 2014 – IDV Solutions, LLC today announced it has attained Gold Application Development, Data Analytics, and Data Platform competencies, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

IDV Solution's market-leading enterprise risk visualization (ERV) software platform, Visual Command Center empowers organizations to take command of risk by providing a single platform for risk awareness and response.  Visual Command Center integrates a consolidated view of assets—such as buildings, employee locations, corporate events and supply routes—with events that may threaten those assets, such as acts of terrorism, severe weather, civil unrest, and hazardous materials releases. When Visual Command Center detects a potential threat near an asset or employee location, it automatically alerts operators, who can use powerful visualization, filtering, and query tools to assess the threat, and then act to minimize risk.


“These Microsoft Gold competencies again showcase our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft technology,” said Mark Morrison, IDV Solutions co-founder and CEO. “We are proud to have received recognition a third time for Visual Fusion and Visual Command Center through multiple gold Microsoft competencies.”

“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”

Attaining the Data Analytics competency demonstrates partner expertise in designing, developing and implementing analytics and data management solutions that allow customers to monitor, analyze and plan business performance based on actionable business insight. Earning the Application Development competency helps partners differentiate themselves as a trusted expert to their customers through development and deployment of commercial or custom applications. Attaining the Data Platform competency demonstrates partner expertise in some of Microsoft’s most in-demand products, including Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V.


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