Spanish Point Technologies has been awarded one of the highest certifications bestowed by Microsoft, joining less than 120 Microsoft partners certified worldwide as an Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP).
To achieve Azure MSP status, Spanish Point had to complete a thorough audit by a third-party provider that assesses the partner’s capabilities, practices, and plans. We also provided multiple customer references of Azure managed services projects delivered over the last 12 months that validate our skills and ability to meet customers’ demands. Furthermore, to retain this status, partners commit to continue to meet pre-requisites annually and complete a progress audit every year.
Spanish Point was recognised as the only Microsoft partner worldwide with an IP based DevOps approach with our SMART AIM library and a dedicated practice with a focus on DevOps. Spanish Point are 1 of only 45 partners worldwide selected for the global Microsoft Azure Specialist for ISV programme, and a member of the GitHub Inner Circle Member, designed for partners who provide advanced DevOps design and built services.
Anne Sheehan, General Manager Microsoft Ireland said:
“We are delighted to announce that our trusted partner Spanish Point has been named an Azure Expert MSP. To achieve the Azure Expert MSP status, partners are assessed by their operational capabilities, including demonstrations of tools and technologies used by the Partner. Spanish Point demonstrated their skills, customer success and ability to scale and a commitment to providing exceptional managed service offerings to ensure that they optimise results for our customers. The Azure Expert MSP programme helps organisations across Ireland to find highly skilled and validated Managed Service Providers, such as Spanish Point, who has demonstrated that they can manage the most complex environments and advise organisations on best practices meeting their Microsoft Azure and Digital Transformation demands.”
John Corley, Spanish Point’s CTO, said:
“We are honoured to have been recognised for the commitment by our software developers and consultants to embrace best practices and provide a very high level of Microsoft technical expertise and experience.
