SystemsUp, which is part of U.K. managed cloud services provider iomart, has also achieved three Silver competencies from Microsoft, for Enterprise Mobility Management; Data Platform; and Messaging.

Greg Hawthorn, Consultancy Director for SystemsUp, said: “It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get one, let alone nine, Microsoft competencies. We have a fantastic team of full-time consultants and I’d like to recognise their efforts in passing all the required examinations and showcasing the great results that their expertise has delivered for our customers.

“These six Gold and three Silver competencies not only demonstrate our in-depth knowledge of Microsoft’s products and services but also our commitment to technical excellence in enabling our customers to use them to foster innovation and mobility in the workplace.”

To earn a Microsoft competency partners have to pass a series of examinations to prove their technological expertise and submit customer references to demonstrate successful project delivery.

SystemsUp helps businesses and organisations of all sizes use the best cloud technologies to improve service delivery. Its consultants work with customers across the public and private sector to build secure platforms; optimise applications for performance; improve mobility and collaboration in the workplace; and use data to improve decision-making. Recent projects have involved moving a prestigious law firm to Microsoft Azure and helping a Premier League club migrate to Office 365 to improve online collaboration for its staff.
