NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 26, 2012) - OpTier, the leader in Application Performance Management (APM) and providing end-to-end Contextual Transaction Data, analyzing billions of transactions and capturing over 250 billion metrics per day, today announced it has achieved a silver Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV) competency, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft Corp. customers' evolving needs in today's dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft silver competency, partners must successfully demonstrate expertise through rigorous exams, culminating in Microsoft certifications. And to ensure the highest quality of services, Microsoft requires customer references for successful implementation and customer satisfaction.

OpTier's unique ability to provide production-ready, low-overhead tracking using its patented ACT™ (Active Context Tracking) technology enables customers to track each transaction across the entire infrastructure. Using OpTier APM, customers can monitor .NET applications and gain deep visibility into their .NET environment, so they can understand their .NET environment and pinpoint any performance and availability issues in production quickly. Monitoring .NET applications with OpTier APM entails tracking of transactions as they pass through .NET tiers, either as standalone web applications, or as part of larger heterogeneous environments. It also includes deep dive capabilities, including method and SQL-level visibility into the time-contributing components of the application.

"This Microsoft Silver ISV competency demonstrates OpTier's expertise in today's technology market with a proven, certified solution for monitoring .NET applications with OpTier APM," said Andy Wild, President of OpTier. "OpTier's horizontal business transaction monitoring combined with its vertical deep dive means that customers can get a clear picture of their .NET environment no matter which tier and how complex the application."

"By achieving a silver competency, organizations have proven their expertise in specific technology areas, placing them among the top 5 percent of Microsoft partners worldwide," said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. "When customers look for an IT partner to meet their business challenges, choosing a company that has attained Microsoft competencies is a smart move. These are highly qualified professionals with access to Microsoft technical support and product teams."

Attaining the Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV)/Software competency demonstrates partner expertise in developing applications based on Microsoft solutions. Equipped with exclusive training, the latest software, and support on Microsoft SQL Server, Windows Server, Windows 7 and Microsoft cloud services, these partners are equipped to develop innovative solutions to meet their customers' needs.
