San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 01, 2015
With a 73% year-over-year lift in 2015 in the amount of customers it has put into the Microsoft Cloud, San Diego’s Agile IT—Microsoft’s Western Cloud Partner of the Year for 2012, 2013, and 2014—continues to lead the way as one of Microsoft’s strongest cloud partners in the Western Region.
“The last few years have been a great time for Microsoft partners with a cloud-focus, like Agile IT,” said Agile IT founder and CEO, John Gilham. “Our success in moving exponentially more people to Cloud—especially migrating businesses to Office 365—is due to a few factors, one of which is our tight-knit partnership with Microsoft itself.
“But I’d say most of the credit is due our team,” Gilham said. “Every member of our technical team is Microsoft certified and committed to driving customer success through the Microsoft Cloud. And our sales and customer service teams’ commitment to ‘customer happiness first’ undoubtedly filters back to our partner [Microsoft] and helps keep us out in front in this rapidly growing space.”
To support its success, Agile IT continues to invest heavily in its people, and has recently added Conrad Agramont, a former Microsoft staff member, as its Director of IT Services.
“Having another seasoned Microsoft pro on staff is huge,” said Gilham, who is himself a former Business Technology Consultant for Microsoft. “And it’s not just at the executive level: we’re trying to add four more customer service technicians this month alone. The people who come to work here tend to stay here as we focus as much on building their skill sets as we do on delivering for our customers.”
In addition to the 73% lift in its Cloud business, Agile IT also delivered 98% growth in its on-premise lines of business services. The locally owned and operated business was also recently ranked as the 15th Fastest Growing Private Company in San Diego.
“Overall, 2015 has just been a huge year for the company,” says Gilham. “I started Agile IT less than 10 years ago in my apartment in Del Mar with a staff of one: me. And here we are, a Microsoft Cloud Partner of the Year for three years in a row, with business seeming to grow by leaps and bounds each quarter. Our decision to invest our energies and expertise in the Microsoft Cloud has definitely turned out to be the right call.”
