The Microsoft Partner Program Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the past year. As one of seven global, Microsoft Application Compatibility Factory partners, Sogeti was able to work with hundreds of clients within the past twelve months to identify potential application compatibility obstacles that may occur when deploying a new operating system, such as Windows® 7.  In addition, Sogeti also provides remediation services and deployment solutions utilizing the Microsoft Jumpstart Program and Sogeti's own deployment methodology "RADIUM", Rapid Automated Deployment with Imaging and User Migration, to ensure a smooth transition. In the past year, Sogeti successfully completed more application compatibility testing and remediation engagements to prepare clients for Windows 7 deployment in the US than any other ACF partner.

"As a Microsoft Global Alliance Partner, Sogeti has been able to take full advantage of our close relationship with Microsoft to build practical deployment solutions around Windows 7. The Microsoft Application Compatibility Factory, MDOP PoC and Windows Jumpstart programs help customers evaluate and prepare for Windows 7 in their organization.
