Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) today announced it
has attained Microsoft Gold competencies for Cloud Platform, Application
Development, and Datacenters, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability
and commitment to meet customers’ evolving needs in today’s
mobile-first, cloud-first world, and distinguishing itself within

“We are excited and proud to achieve these three new Gold competencies
with Microsoft, further validating our capabilities to support our
customers on their IT modernization journey,” said Coby Holloway, SAIC
vice president for IT Modernization. “Our Gold partner status
demonstrates our ability to deploy the best available technology
solutions, and highlights our investment in developing the technical
expertise necessary to thrive in a digital world.”

Microsoft technologies for successful customer outcomes as well as the

To earn a Microsoft Gold competency, partners must successfully complete
exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their
level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified
professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain
level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references
that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance (revenue and or
consumption/usage) commitment (for most Gold competencies), and pass
technology and/or sales assessments.
Through our support and deployment of Microsoft technologies, we have
successfully enabled customer adoption of Microsoft Azure and Office 365
and have demonstrated expertise in cloud migration, DevSecOps, advanced
collaboration solutions, and advanced data analytics. SAIC is a
Microsoft Gold Partner, the highest level in the Microsoft Partner

expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their
