The Center of Excellence (COE) designation from Liquidware is conveyed upon Channel Partners who have consistently demonstrated the highest standard of knowledge and technical delivery in virtual desktop projects. This designation is only conferred upon Acceler8 Partners who have integrated the Liquidware transformation methodology and tool set into their business processes to deliver superior services to the highest standards in an industry-leading technical framework.
Only a handful of Acceler8 Partners have achieved the COE designation. They are:
- Forthright Technology Partners
- SITS Group
- DH Technologies
Achieving the Liquidware COE designation is a notable achievement, as it calls for COE Partners to satisfy the following requirements:
- Partners are required to have in-depth knowledge of virtualization platforms and virtual desktop technologies as it relates to capacity planning and infrastructure design for end-user computing initiatives.
- Partners are required to have held the level of Acceler8 Partner for a minimum of 12 months.
- All relevant parts of the Partner organization receives focused sales and technical training on a regular basis, with multiple staff from each discipline participating in these sessions.
