Sogeti achieves Azure Expert MSP status for the third consecutive year
Sogeti Cloud recorded a perfect 100% score in the 2020 Azure Expert Managed Service Provider audit with zero non-conformances or actions required.
Sogeti’s Gold Partner relationship with Microsoft has been strengthened by our latest accreditation as a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP). We were among the first accredited partners when Microsoft launched the program in 2018 and are delighted to have maintained this status every year since.
As a Group, we have also earned “the Kubernetes on Microsoft Azure advanced specialization” accreditation as well as “the Modernization of Web Applications in Microsoft Azure advanced specialization” thereby showcasing our strong commitment and capabilities in all areas of Cloud Advisory, Migrations, Run services as well as containerization and application modernization.
Being a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP is hugely important for Sogeti. It announces us as one of the most capable and experienced Azure MSPs globally. Our comprehensive cloud offering, delivered by OneDeliver, offers a broad and deep portfolio of cloud consulting and IT services across the globe.
Passed with flying colors
To have passed the 2020 audit with flying colors is testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in the accreditation process. We had zero remediation items and scored top marks with a 100/100 in all areas. This was commented on by the independent auditor, who reported that we “exhibited a very strong commitment to ensuring a successful outcome to the audit and were extremely well prepared”.
During the intensive day-long progress audit, we demonstrated the tools, technologies and processes we use to meet Azure Expert MSP requirements. We were also assessed on the quality of training for both new hires and experienced colleagues, which was described as “best practice in Azure skilling and ongoing training”.
Jayanto Mukherjee, Sogeti’s Head of OneDeliver, comments: “This reflects the strong focus on equipping our people with the knowledge and confidence they need to take the latest technologies to the market. It’s our promise – a guarantee that says we are 100% committed to building the skills of each of our people to the highest standard and being at the cutting edge. Achieving professional certification, including Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs), is a key strategy for us.”
Our top marks across the board in the 2020 Azure Expert MSP audit extended from our structured sales support to an industrialized and highly efficient end-to-end delivery solution. We were recognized across all streams, including our industry leading assessment (backed by strong customer transformations for both migrations and application modernization methodology), our security policies, and the tools we use for monitoring and governance of our Run services.
The audit report states: “Sogeti demonstrated good expertise in promoting and deploying the various Azure services with commensurate proof of implementation in customer environments. They have well defined and well-developed Cloud transformation strategies (Advise, Align, Animate) to help their customers in their cloud transformation journeys.”
What does this accreditation mean for our customers? Jayanto Mukherjee comments:
“By being an Azure Expert MSP, we’re at the forefront of Microsoft’s latest technical advancements and Azure best practices. With our industrialized, predictable, and highly efficient cloud offering, we are helping customers to become more adaptable, stimulate innovation, and improve their business performance by adopting and embracing cloud in the ’right’ manner.”
Sogeti’s accreditation as an Azure Expert Managed Service Provider continues our long-term alliance with Microsoft, through which we are helping enterprises to accelerate their adoption of cloud technologies.
