August 8, 2011 – “Attaining a Gold Competency in Systems Management provides Ferranti Computer Systems with a competitive advantage and helps us offer our customers the most relevant Microsoft solutions in the market,” states Frederik Baert, Director Professional Services ICT.

Ferranti Computer Systems has been a Microsoft Gold Partner for over 4 years. The Microsoft Partner Network recently introduced a more rigorous certification process and competency structure that better reflects partners’ core strengths.
When you achieve the Microsoft Gold Systems Management competency, you demonstrate greater value to your customers by showcasing best-in-class capabilities that have been subject to a rigorous and auditable approval process.

The systems management market is growing, due to the need to reduce costs from customers’ IT infrastructures, along with other top chief information officer (CIO) priorities that include disaster recovery, server virtualization, server consolidation, and data center consolidation. System Center technologies can address these needs by creating operational efficiencies, IT-labor cost savings, and support for consolidating multiple physical servers within a virtual infrastructure to reduce hardware costs.

Ferranti Computer Systems addresses top IT priorities by providing end-to-end solutions that take advantage of the System Center solution set in order to help you stay aware of potential IT issues, respond promptly and effectively to eliminate possible problems, minimize downtime & reduce costs. “The Microsoft Systems Management Gold Competency enables us to deliver data center and desktop solutions that help our customers maximize their IT investments,” explains Frederik Baert.
