Apptix® (OSE: APP), the premier provider of hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions, today announced that Joseph Cirillo has joined the Company as Principal Architect.
Mr. Cirillo is one of only six Microsoft Certified Architects worldwide in the Exchange Server 2010 competency. He possesses extensive knowledge from over 15 years in-depth hands-on experience in the design and delivery of cost-effective, high performance network architectures.
“Apptix is very pleased to have Joe on board,” said David Ehrhardt, President and CEO of Apptix. “His exceptional skill set brings a wealth of knowledge that we are applying toward the complex, sophisticated needs of our mid-market and enterprise customers, and blue chip channel partners.”
Apptix has a deep practice focused on serving the complex business needs of mid-size and large organizations and provides Cloud-based business services to entrepreneurial small businesses through its channel partners. Mr. Cirillo, as the principal architect of the Company’s IT operations framework, will be a driving force behind the future planning of investments to increase capacity, migration, and customization capabilities. His previous experience will also enable him to contribute immediately in matters pertaining to onboarding, migration, industry-specific security, and network troubleshooting.
By engaging a Microsoft Certified Architect (MCA), Apptix has further enhanced its ability to create, maintain, and deploy best-in-breed technology solutions tailored to fit customers’ needs, unlike other “one size fits all” solutions.
Microsoft Certified Architect is the highest level of Microsoft certification currently available, replacing the previous “Microsoft Ranger” certification. The MCA designation is earned by successfully passing the MCA Board exam, a rigorous process which includes creation and presentation of a portfolio that demonstrates mastery in a number of business and technical areas.
“Joe Cirillo is an outstanding professional, and we are very anxious to recognize his contributions to the Apptix Cloud-based platform and how these add significant value for our customers and our business,” said Ehrhardt.
