Today Halcyon Financial Technology, L.P. (HalcyonFT) announced its certification as a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider. Participation in the program will allow HalcyonFT to expand its current offerings and provide a complete end-to-end experience for clients in need of managed services.

HalcyonFT will leverage its role as a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider to help clients drive new business value through the cloud with high-value offerings that optimize the benefits of cloud computing. HalcyonFT will be able to move beyond reselling licenses to pursue deeper engagement in all aspects of the customer relationship, including solutions, support and billing. HalcyonFT will also be able to add value by bundling IT solutions with industry-leading Microsoft products like Windows, Office 365 and Azure, delivering secure, reliable and cost-effective cloud architectures.
“Having a closer technical partnership between Microsoft and HalcyonFT will allow us to collaborate on more complex cloud-based solutions,” said HalcyonFT’s Managing Partner Rodric O’Connor. “The partnership includes ongoing technical training and certifications to improve our employees’ knowledge of Microsoft product suites so that we can help our clients take advantage of market shifts to cloud-based solutions to drive growth and profitability.”
