How Many Microsoft Gold ISVs? Try 787

Microsoft seldom discloses specifics on how many of its partners achieve a given competency. But one partner company that just attained gold status in the Independent Software Vendor competency is providing a precise figure for its category.

"Windward is one of only 787 ISVs in the world to attain Microsoft's Gold Competency. Similar to Red Gate Software, Experian QAS, IBM, Barracuda Networks, and Citrix, Windward is part of the Microsoft Partner Network," Boulder, Colo.-based Windward said in a press release this week.

Founded in 2002, Windward develops business intelligence and enterprise reporting solutions based on a Java and .NET engine using Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint on the front end.
