Bothell, WA (PRWEB) October 13, 2016
Celedon Partners, LLC, a growing CRM consulting firm that delivers a unique blend of technical expertise, flexible engagement models and creative user experience engineering, today announced that it has attained a Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world and distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.
Celedon Partners' reputation for customer success is built upon its talent-first approach to consulting, as well as its dedication to providing clients with fresh ideas and modern, user-friendly solutions. This award, which follows Celedon Partners’ achievement of a Microsoft Gold Customer Relationship Management (CRM) competency, demonstrates the company’s commitment to both the Microsoft ecosystem and to extending the benefits of Azure’s next generation cloud technologies to its wide range of business and government customers.
“As organizations continue to embark upon transformative digital initiatives and democratize their CRM investments, it’s important that they work with partners who understand how to take advantage of the Azure cloud in a smart way,” said Brett Campbell, EVP of Business Development at Celedon. “We’re proud to have received this competency so soon after our silver competency. It’s a testament to the expertise of our growing group of consultants and engineers and their enthusiasm for Azure-based solutions, and we look forward to continuing to help our customers achieve more with Microsoft cloud services.”
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance commitment, and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated a deep expertise and commitment that puts them at the top of our partner ecosystem,” said Gavriella Schuster, general manager, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners’ proficiency of the latest Microsoft technology is instrumental in helping customers continue to drive innovative solutions.”
Attaining the Microsoft Cloud Platform competency demonstrates partner expertise in building, integrating and/or extending Windows-based applications and infrastructure solutions in the cloud using the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. With more than 57 percent of the Fortune 500 using Microsoft Azure, the Microsoft Cloud Platform competency can help partners take advantage of the growing demand for infrastructure and software as a service solutions. Equipped with exclusive training, partners can help customers deploy solutions that increase customer productivity and profitability.
