RoundTower announced today that it has attained a Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform competency. This demonstrates a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world and distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment, and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
“This Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform competency showcases our expertise and commitment to today’s cloud market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft’s Azure offerings,” said Rocky Giglio, Microsoft Solutions Lead. “These skills are a key part of the cloud strategies our clients are building and also provide an enhanced foundation of RoundTower’s unmatched platform.”
“By achieving a Gold competency, RoundTower has demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “RoundTower has a deep expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions.”
The Cloud Platform competency demonstrates a partner’s ability to help customers modernize their infrastructure, migrate applications and data to the Azure, and build analytics solutions on data platforms in Azure. All 17 Microsoft technology competencies differentiate a partner’s specific technology capabilities, helping customers find qualified solution providers with expertise in discrete areas quickly and easily. The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
