Absol was awarded Microsoft's .NET Connected Logo certification for its online Internet audience measurement, tracking and analysis application, AbsolStats, which successfully passed Microsoft testing and verification in July 2004.
The Microsoft .NET Connected Logo program recognizes solutions that fully support XML Web services capabilities and take advantage of the Microsoft .NET Framework's multi-language support, added security, and enhanced flexibility.
Microsoft .NET is a set of software technologies for connecting information, people, systems, and devices through use of Web services, XML-based applications that rely on a universal language to exchange data.
By leveraging Web services, companies can link their business processes across enterprises to streamline transactions with customers, employees, partners and suppliers.
Absol is the sixth company in South Africa to attain Microsoft's .NET Connected Logo certificate.
