Microsoft Gold Status of Cloud Platform Competency Achieved by Connectria

Connectria has announced it has achieved Microsoft’s Gold Status for Cloud Platform Competency for its expertise and use of Microsoft Azure.

The Microsoft Cloud Platform Competency was designed for Microsoft Partners to help them capitalize on the increasing demand for infrastructure as-a-service and software as-a-service running in Microsoft Azure cloud environments. Achieving a Gold or Silver standard helps companies differentiate their services within the Microsoft Partner ecosystem and demonstrate to their customers they have considerable expertise in running IaaS and SaaS on Azure.

The Microsoft Cloud Platform Competency is awarded to companies that have demonstrated expertise in Microsoft Azure environments, with the Gold status awarded to companies who have completed rigorous Microsoft Technical Assessments and are maintaining a certain level of core Microsoft Certified Professionals on staff.

Companies must also show they have applied that expertise to help their customers and must submit customer references to demonstrate past successes on Microsoft Azure. In order to achieve Gold status, companies must demonstrate they have met performance thresholds for revenue and/or consumption/usage, commitment, and pass sales and/or technology assessments.

The Gold status shows companies have the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology and have deep expertise and places them in the best-in-class category within the Microsoft partner ecosystem and are proficient at helping customers drive innovative solutions.

“Achieving the Microsoft Gold Cloud Competency demonstrates our technical expertise and continued investment in Microsoft technologies including Azure,” said Dustin Mathews, Associate VP of Technical Operations at Connectria. “We continue to drive customer success on the Azure platform by delivering a comprehensive suite of managed services to support our customers’ Azure environments.”
