Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Quality Technology Solutions, Inc. (QTS) today announced it has been named by Microsoft as the New York Metro CloudOS Partner of the Year for 2014, following the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Washington, D.C. This marks the third year in a row QTS has won a NY Metro Partner of the Year award, and the fourth time in the last seven years, by Microsoft.
QTS was honored among the top Microsoft partners for providing outstanding solutions and services based upon Microsoft technologies – particularly the “CloudOS” technologies including Windows Server, Hyper-V, System Center and Azure that constitute Microsoft’s Private Cloud platform, as well as fostering superior customer engagement in the Eastern United States. The NY Metro Area Partner of the Year Award recognizes QTS as the “stand out” CloudOS partner who has exhibited outstanding accomplishments during the fiscal year.
“The US Regional Partner Awards Program gives Microsoft the opportunity to recognize its top partners and acknowledges the extraordinary contributions of Microsoft partners serving commercial customers throughout the past fiscal year,” said Karen Del Vescovo, Vice President, Microsoft’s Small and Mid-market Solutions and Partners group (SMS&P) in the East Region.
"We’re honored to be acknowledged yet again by Microsoft at this level, with one of the top awards for the New York Metro District," noted QTS President and CEO Neil Rosenberg. "We work hard to keep our business in close alignment with Microsoft and ensure that we deliver the highest value to our customers around understanding and deploying the latest Microsoft technologies, both in the Cloud and on-premise, to help customers maximize the value they receive from their investments in the Microsoft platform. It’s quite an honor to be named again as a Partner of the Year, especially around such a critical Microsoft solution platform as CloudOS."
QTS differentiated in the marketplace by offering professional services for deploying many Microsoft technologies in fixed cost, fixed scope packaged service bundles, or “QuikStarts™,” to make it easy for customers deploying Hyper-V and System Center to engage with QTS and to align with Microsoft deployment funding programs. Through its Microsoft relationship and its customer approach, QTS frequently develops a trusted advisor relationship with its clients, helping them to understand the broad range of offerings and options from Microsoft, and then can leverage its QuikStart engagements to help customers deploy the technologies that best match their needs and goals, with strong knowledge transfer and teamwork.
During Microsoft’s Fiscal Year ending in 2014, QTS delivered over 100 Microsoft deployment “wins” in NY/NJ/CT, around Windows 7 and 8.1, Office 2013, Exchange Server, SharePoint Server, Lync Server, Office 365 in the Cloud, Hyper-V, System Center and Intune, SQL Server, Azure and other important Microsoft solutions. To the benefit of its customers, QTS was able to deliver nearly $500,000 from various Microsoft funding programs to help many of its customers deploy new Microsoft technologies at lower cost, and help them take advantage of their Microsoft relationship and resources. Working together, QTS and Microsoft were able to help these New Jersey, New York and Connecticut businesses to get onto the most current Microsoft platforms and enhance improved staff productivity and effectiveness while driving down cost and maximizing the value they received from their Microsoft software and Cloud service investments.
QTS was previously the Microsoft NY Metro Partner of the Year for 2013, and for 2012, as well as for 2008, so this marks QTS’ third win in a row of a NY Metro District Partner of the Year award, and the fourth time in a 7 year period. Microsoft presents Field Partner Awards in multiple categories, including this CloudOS Award, with honorees selected from more than 200 organizations across the Eastern United States.
“We are pleased to present QTS with this award,” said Karen Del Vescovo. “QTS is seen as a leader in the New York Metro District. They show a strong commitment to commercial customers throughout the geography.”
