Microsoft Azure Expert MSP

How do you pick a Microsoft Azure Partner? Simple, work with an expert!

What is an Azure Expert MSP?

The Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP) program is a new global initiative from Microsoft to highlight and promote only the most capable partners. Helping companies identify the top partners to work with. Microsoft has recognised less than 100 partners globally, and just a handful in the UK, that meet the standards to be an Azure Expert MSP. And we’re proud to be one of them.

“We are pleased to recognize Cloud Direct as an Azure Expert MSP. This new recognition offers our customers certainty that an organization provides excellent services on Azure.” – Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner at Microsoft Corp

The requirements to become an Azure Expert MSP are the most stringent of any Microsoft program. Partners need to validate their skills, their customer success, an ability to scale and a commitment to providing next-generation managed service offerings.

For us, this is more than a title. It’s so that we can do the best for our customers.

What does being an Azure Expert MSP mean for our customers?

We’ve always been about empowering businesses to achieve ‘Fearless Growth’. We want to help ambitious organisations adopt the cloud and reap all its benefits. As an Azure Expert MSP, we can do so much more for you.

  1. Better service
    It’s simple, really: when you work with an expert, you get expert-level service. Microsoft has made it easier to verify the best partners by awarding this rigorous accreditation to a select few top-performing partners. Every service that we offer, every customer interaction, is held to a higher standard. We love raising the bar because it makes us up our game and hop right over it.
  2. Broader offerings
    Whatever your business needs, we can deliver it. Keen on IaaS, PaaS or SaaS? We can advise you. Ready to adopt mobile working or the Internet of Things? We know all about it. Need help with app migration, security or compliance? We have experts in all areas.
  3. Closer partnerships
    Being one of the few Azure Expert MSPs in the UK brings us much closer to Microsoft. Our already close partnership is now much stronger, and all the benefits that come our way get passed directly on to you, our customers. Picture this: Microsoft’s capabilities and software paired with our expertise and skills, all working to better your business. The possibilities are endless.
