E-learning solution provider IntraLearn attains Front Runner status.

IntraLearn Software Corp., a provider of Microsoft technology-based, turnkey, e-learning solutions, announced that with its launch of an application suite using Microsoft SQL Server 2005, it has earned Front Runner status from Microsoft Corp.

Front Runner status is awarded to ISVs that offer applications based on SQL Server 2005. IntraLearn is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner with a Microsoft Competency in ISV/Software Solutions.

"Microsoft has always been committed to the success of our broad ISV partner community and will continue to rely heavily on that community to drive innovative solutions to market," said Pradeep Rathinam, general manager of U.S. ISV Strategy in the U.S. Partner Group at Microsoft. "The Front Runner program was designed to provide our partners with the best development environment possible and give them the technical and marketing tools they need to be successful over the long term."

"IntraLearn is excited to support SQL Server 2005 because it’s a great platform and a great leap forward," said Greg Aspen, chief architect at IntraLearn. "Achieving Front Runner status enables us to deliver applications to customers within the same timeframe as the launch of SQL Server 2005. As a result of the solution we have developed, we are uniquely positioned to help our customers get the most from their technology investment."
