The Data Management Solutions Awards recognize partners that provide both mission-critical transactional applications and business intelligence solutions. The broad data management story is supported by two specializations:
-- Business intelligence. These solutions help organizations improve their business insight by enabling all employees to make better, faster and more relevant decisions.
-- Database management. The backbone to any mission-critical application, these solutions demand high availability, mission-critical reliability and high performance. Companies that deploy innovative applications are the ones that will be the front-runners in the competitive marketplace.
With increasing demands on IT resources, companies must find new ways of maximizing their data platform investments. Microsoft provides the next-generation data management platform that enables customers to unleash the full potential of their data assets.
“It is a privilege to recognize Forte' Incorporated as a winner of this year’s Partner of the Year for Data Management Solutions in Sales and Marketing,” said Allison Watson, vice president of the Worldwide Partner Sales and Marketing Group at Microsoft. “It is this level of effectiveness in reaching out to our shared customers regarding the value of solutions built on Microsoft technology that enables continued success for us and for our Partners. We applaud Forte' Incorporated for its achievements this year and offer gratitude for our ongoing collaboration through the Microsoft Partner Program.”
