We are pleased to announce that following extensive testing of Box UK’s Content Management System Amaxus, it has been awarded Application Compatibility Status from Microsoft. After being tested against Microsoft’s server platforms, Amaxus is now certified compatible with Windows 2008 R2, IIS 7 and SQL Server R2, meaning it can be easily integrated into frameworks using these systems.
Amaxus is an intelligent, intuitive web content management solution that allows businesses to effectively manage their brand online. It provides the ideal foundation to build a successful online strategy, maximising the opportunities of mobile, social media and personalisation to meet your commercial objectives, with a flexible framework which can grow and diversify along with your requirements.
Completing the compatibility certification was the final Microsoft standard required to remain on their list of official Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). This in turn qualifies for the renewal of our Silver Data Platform status as part of their Partner Program, which recognises those companies that meet a certain level of quality and compliance with Microsoft systems.
By demonstrating our commitment to technological best practice we are given access to the latest Microsoft resources, strengthening our diverse range of learning assets and helping ensure we remain at the forefront of technological innovation. Microsoft also provide dedicated support, including the ability to test on platforms not yet available to the wider market. This allows us valuable insight into up-and-coming platform advances so that our products and services can be optimised to deliver the best performance possible.
Benno Wasserstein, Managing Director at Box UK said: “We’re very proud that our dedication to excellence continues to be recognised by Microsoft. The Microsoft Partner Program offers many great opportunities to increase our knowledge and skills, and we ensure that these benefits are passed on to our customers to ensure they get the most out of their web strategy.”
