As one of the first (maybe even THE first) specialists in the world Floris Weegink has successfully completed the qualification process to be officially recognized as a 'Google Search Appliance Qualified Deployment Specialist' by Google Enterprise.
Because Incentro is Prefered Partner in The Netherlands, we were asked to join Google Enterprise in an early release / beta program of the "GSA Qualified Deployment Specialist" program.

The program caters to those who demonstrate the skill, knowledge, and experience to deploy the GSA. Candidates who pass the exam will receive a certificate and badge.
