LEXINGTON, Ky., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
SIS, a leading technology and managed IT solutions provider, today announced it has attained a Microsoft Gold Management and Virtualization competency, demonstrating a "best-in-class" ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers' evolving needs in today's dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft's partner ecosystem.

"Earning our Gold level competency in Management and Virtualization demonstrates our infrastructure management and virtualization expertise and our commitment to providing cost-effective solutions to help customers improve data-center operations as well as our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products," said Steve Sigg, President and CEO.

-- Collaboration and Content
-- Devices and Deployment
-- Management and Virtualization
-- Server Platform
-- Data Platform
