TULSA, Okla., June 18, 2010 – Stonebridge, a leading information technology consulting firm, today announced that it has won Microsoft’s 2010 “Small Business Excellence” Partner Award. This award recognizes how Stonebridge has changed a small business customer’s business by leveraging technology to address their business challenges.
Stonebridge was chosen out of an extensive field of Microsoft partners in the South Central region. The Microsoft Partner Program Awards initiative recognizes Microsoft-skilled information technology services providers who have developed and delivered business solutions built on Microsoft technology over the past year.
Stonebridge’s award-winning solution is a map-based “spatial dashboard” developed for a Houston-based oil and gas company. The client company operates approximately 3,000 wells in four geographic areas. The spatial dashboard organizes operational and competitive data within a geospatial context.
“On behalf of the Stonebridge team, I want to thank Microsoft for this honor,” said James Ivy, Stonebridge’s chief executive officer and founder. “We are committed to creating business solutions that enable our clients to realize significant, sustainable improvements in their people, processes and technology. The spatial dashboard solution is a prime example of what Stonebridge consultants do day in and day out for our customers. This award is a real testament to our commitment.”
Built on Stonebridge’s innovative 360° Collaboration Framework, the spatial dashboard solution runs on the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server platform. Within the SharePoint environment, the application integrates a series of .NET web parts built on IDV Solutions’ Visual Fusion visual mashup software and configured web parts inherent to SharePoint. In addition, the application’s “base map” of spatial data is provided through Microsoft Bing Maps. Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services is combined with advanced charting capabilities to define and deploy Web-based reports of static well performance and header data.
Stonebridge has deep expertise in developing the enterprise solutions such as the award-winning spatial dashboard for the oil and gas industry. The company derives more than three quarters of its revenue from energy companies.
