Setting a new Gold Standard as a Microsoft Partner

4 September 2018

We’re announcing Microsoft Gold Partner accreditations in Cloud Platform and Datacenter service, after meeting Microsoft’s rigorous requirements to provide best in class client offerings.

Halian has attained Microsoft’s Gold Partner status in two competencies, Cloud Platform and Datacenter, demonstrating our expertise in creating value added and innovative services for a customer base using Microsoft technologies.

Expertise in the Azure platform opens up further opportunity for customers to modernize their infrastructures, migrate applications and data, and build better analytics in the cloud. Gold Partner status in datacenter also recognizes our depth of knowledge in transformative datacenter services, creating scalable and cost-effective solutions for clients.

Spending on public cloud services is forecast to reach $277 billion by 2021, and according to IDC, customers are increasingly investing in hybrid cloud services that provide agile, scalable, and on-demand infrastructure. By 2018, 80% of organizations will have a commitment to hybrid architecture, and Microsoft’s comprehensive portfolio of solutions across datacenter and cloud is therefore a key offering for Halian’s customers.

Group Sales Director Stuart Fry commented: “Halian’s Microsoft Gold Partner competency differentiates us as a provider of Public Cloud, Management, and Virtualization Deployment services. Recognition of our Cloud Platform and Datacenter competency will be a key part of growing our managed customer infrastructure and managed services business moving forward, using SaaS and PaaS solutions on Azure Marketplace.”
