New Zealand-owned and operated Datacom has achieved Tier 1 status in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program, seen as a huge boost to the company’s cloud credentials across both sides of the Tasman.

Designed to strengthen customer relationships and expand cloud sales opportunities, the program enables partners to provide direct billing, sell combined offers and services, as well as directly provision, manage and support products and services.

Microsoft says Tier 1 status is reserved for companies which can offer an end-to-end service, including support.

“This credential is a key part of Datacom’s strategy to be the leading cloud partner for the enterprise,” says Jonathan Ladd, CEO, Datacom.

“There are not many credible options for organisations who see their future in a hybrid public and private cloud environment, and Datacom’s growing public cloud skill set is allowing us to disrupt the market.

“We see the future as very bright for Azure and will stand side by side Microsoft to enable new and innovative business models for our mutual customers.”

Ladd says Datacom has “extensive experience working” in Microsoft Azure, including successfully migrating Zespri International’s global SAP platform and other applications to the platform.

The migration was the world’s largest production of SAP to Azure and won Datacom the Cloud Enterprise award at Microsoft New Zealand’s Partner awards, as reported by Reseller News.

“To meet the growing demand of our cloud-based solutions, we’re thrilled to expand the capabilities for cloud partners under the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program,” says Phil Goldie, Director, Partner Business & Development, Microsoft Australia.

“By joining the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program, partners will deepen customer relationships and expand business opportunities in the cloud.”
