Ensono Recognized as Microsoft Azure Expert MSP After Rigorous Audit Process

Ensono announces its status as one of the first managed service providers to be recognized as a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP from the Microsoft pilot program after an intensive audit process.

Ensono is now one of just 32 certified Azure Expert MSPs after proving itself as an expert ally in assisting clients in adopting Azure services. This certification recognizes that Ensono clients on Azure receive continuous optimization in spend and technology. Ensono’s managed Azure clients will receive fully audited managed services and will have access to the most qualified consultants and technical resources throughout their digital transformation journeys.

To achieve this certification, Ensono underwent an in-depth audit that evaluated its technical expertise, assessment and design, build and migration, cloud operations and service management, security and governance, SLAs customer satisfaction, cost optimization and reporting for its Azure services. Ensono’s Hyper Cloud Platform was a critical element in receiving the certification. This cloud management platform allows clients to have full visibility of their Microsoft Azure environment without having to worry about day-to-day management and long-term strategy.

“Working hand-in-hand with Ensono helped us build what our cloud strategy needs to look like, what challenges we are likely to face, and what we need to be thinking about as we move forward with some of our more critical credit products,” said Keith Blondel, Callcredit’s IT services director. “Ensono is and will continue to be our go-to partner to support our cloud vision.”

Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp. said, “Ensono continuously delivers excellence in Microsoft services to its clients, which is why recognizing them with this certification is well-deserved.  Ensono’s dedication to its clients and leadership in managed services is exactly what we look for in Azure Managed Expert MSPs.”

Ensono worked with Sonoco, one of the largest diversified global packaging companies, to implement a cloud-first strategy through Azure GoLive, Ensono’s process for migrating clients to Azure. Ensono identified opportunities for digitally transforming workloads on Azure and lead the company’s transition from the mainframe to Azure. The migration provided the client with an improved user experience, cost savings, and a competitive advantage by delivering client-specific apps from Azure.

“The Azure Expert MSP designation provides our clients with the reassurance that we are the right partner to take their cloud strategies to the next level,” Executive Vice President of Technology and Strategy Brian Klingbeil said. “Our clients and global businesses looking to transform can be assured we provide optimal managed Azure services and a seamless digital transformation journey.”

This certification comes on the heels of Ensono’s recognition as the winner of the 2018 Microsoft Datacenter Transformation Partner of the Year Award.
