Strategic Micro Systems achieves Microsoft Gold Status
Strategic Micro Systems, an award-winning global provider of IT and Cloud Services located in the NJ/NY region, has achieved the highest partnership status with Microsoft as a Gold Partner and Tier 1 Microsoft Cloud Service Provider.
"Achieving Microsoft Gold status means we now share the stage with companies like Dell, HP, and Google." says Ted Passalacqua, President and CEO of Strategic Micro Systems. "It's a tremendous accomplishment for Strategic Micro Systems because it not only recognizes Strategic as a whole, but also the individuals and customers who've contributed to make it possible".
Strategic's Gold status further distinguishes itself within the top one (1) percent of Microsoft's partner ecosystem.
To become Gold certified, Strategic has to consistently maintain excellence in both knowledge and practical deployment of Microsoft solutions. To that end, Strategic employs top-tier talent certified in the latest Microsoft technologies, like Office 365, Azure, and other Microsoft solutions. Additionally, customer satisfaction is now consistently monitored through Microsoft and their solicitation of feedback directly from clients. These customer references must be exceptional as well as demonstrable through the implementation of successful projects. Strategic must also meet a substantial revenue commitment.
According to Tom McCann, Director of Technical Services, Microsoft Gold status is further validation of Strategic's commitment in allowing customers to realize the full potential of Microsoft's cloud-based services. "Strategic helps our clients directly benefit from cloud and hybrid deployments built on Microsoft Solutions like Office 365, Remote Desktop, Sharepoint, Exchange, and others," says McCann. "We've enjoyed a 19-year alliance with Microsoft in both software and cloud based services which has resulted in thousands of successful deployments and we look forward to continuing in our growth with Microsoft."
Phil Sorgen, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of the Worldwide Partner Group, adds "By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology. These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions for the latest Microsoft technology."
