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(TM) (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
perc
ent 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
