Comms-care is proud to announce it has been awarded two further Microsoft Advanced Specialisations: Windows & SQL Server Migration to Azure and Teamwork Deployment.

Microsoft’s recently launched Advanced Specialisation series are the next step beyond Gold Competencies and demonstrate a partner’s proven success and expertise in specific areas. Microsoft utilises a comprehensive approach to determine the most trusted partners and advisors that can work with the most demanding cases, where the highest levels of quality and responsibility are required.

Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialisation

This advanced specialisation has been obtained as a result of Comms-care’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and expertise in migrating Windows Server and SQL Server-based workloads to Azure. To earn an advanced specialisation in this area, Comms-care met stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling and passed a third-party audit of our migration practices.

As customers look to modernise their applications and take full advantage of the benefits that cloud computing can deliver, and with the recent end-of-support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2, they are looking for a partner with advanced skills to assess, plan, and migrate their existing workloads to the cloud. Comms-care partners can leverage Comms-care’s specialist skills and access potential funding sources to help end-customers on their migration journey to Azure.

Teamwork Deployment Advanced Specialisation

Comms-care is just one of three organisations in the UK to have achieved the Advanced Specialisation for Teamwork Deployment.

For remote teams to be successful, minimising technological friction and enabling effortless collaboration is essential. Office 365 is a powerful asset when it comes to empowering remote teams, but before customers can unlock the potential of the full ecosystem they need to migrate to the platform and get configured properly.

Teamwork deployment services offer a critical opportunity for partners to ensure customers achieve business value from Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, and Yammer, which can increase customer lifetime value for partners. This accreditation helps to differentiate partners in the marketplace, making it easier for customers to identify the best match for their needs.

Simon Day, Services Director, says: “I am delighted Comms-care has achieved two further Advanced Specialisations. These accreditations really signify Comms-care’s intimate knowledge across the Microsoft portfolio. The benefits this can bring to our partners is immense.”
