Perficient adds 9th & 10th GSA Qualified Deployment Specialists

I am very pleased to announce that Chris Cook and Praveen Gullapalli have joined the elite team of Google Search Appliance (GSA) Qualified Deployment Specialists. They join existing GSA specialists Anu Pidaparti, Allen Han, Alok Gupta, Cody Coggins, Narbeh Yousefian, Shruti Sundaresh, Yogesh Dhavale, and myself.
Chris and Praveen both have extensive project experience implementing some of the largest and most complex Google Search Appliance projects.  Those project often involve indexing millions of secure documents from multiple content management systems, single sign-on integration, and custom user interfaces.  While achieving this certificate is a huge achievement, Chris and Praveen prove their skills with our clients week in and week out.
The 4-part certification process is rigorous and designed to validate the experience of individuals among search partners. The qualification process includes certification in core GSA fundamentals and capabilities as well as advanced functionality and deployment methodology.  The exam challenges the individual on both technical and non-technical knowledge, ensuring that they can architect, deploy, and support the most complex GSA implementation projects.
Perficient has one of the largest GSA deployment teams in the world, and we take great pride in delivering the highest quality services.  The preparation for this certification exam ensures that our team is current on the latest technical and non-technical deployment topics.
Congratulations again to all of the deployment specialists on our team, and thank you for your hard work and dedication to Perficient and to Google.
