International IT solutions and MSP (managed services provider), Logicalis, has renewed its status as an official Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP). The Azure Expert MSP program is a global initiative from Microsoft to highlight and promote partners with the highest level of expertise as managed service providers in assisting customers as they digitally transform their businesses, leveraging the power of Azure.
Logicalis first achieved the Microsoft Azure Expert certification in 2020. Only the most high-fidelity cloud MSPs are awarded the Azure Expert MSP badge, intended to give customers confidence when selecting a partner to help them meet their digital transformation goals.
Logicalis’ renewal of this accreditation, following an extensive audit, would underscore its continued commitment to grow its capabilities and acquire “industry-leading” talent. During the process, Logicalis demonstrated to the third-party auditor how it continues to accelerate the acquisition of new customers by leveraging the latest technology offerings Microsoft makes available to the market.
“Our re-certification of the Microsoft Azure Expert MSP status demonstrates the continued investment in our global strategic partnership with Microsoft,” said Bob Bailkoski, Logicalis Group CEO. “As Architects of Change, this accreditation enables us to continue to provide industry-leading solutions and services that support customers in realizing tangible business outcomes through digital transformation. We are proud to be part of this elite group of global Azure Expert Managed Service Providers.”
Deep Level of Cloud Expertise
“This renewed status is continued evidence that Logicalis is the partner of choice for organizations as they look to fuel their growth by becoming a digital business integrated with Azure,” said Mick McNeil, Vice President of Microsoft Business Development, Logicalis. Mr. McNeil was appointed to his role last year and is responsible for leading Logicalis’ cloud business in partnership with Microsoft.
Logicalis US is part of the Logicalis Group, which has more than 6,500 employees and annualized revenues of $1.7 billion, from operations in Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Africa. Through their consulting and managed services, Logicalis delvers custom security, network, collaboration, cloud, and data center solutions.
“As customers move to the public cloud with increasing pace, they need partners with a deep level of cloud expertise and experience to guide them,” said Gavriella Shuster, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft. “As a global Microsoft partner, Logicalis continues to verify its excellence in customer delivery and technical expertise via the Microsoft Azure Expert MSP program. Microsoft looks forward to continuing to partner with Logicalis to deliver digital transformation outcomes with our joint customers.”
