Rigorous Accreditation Process
As you would expect for such a prestigious certification, the MSP accreditation process is extremely rigorous, the preparation of which itself took ten weeks right from completing the pre-requisites with Microsoft, the pre-audit and the 2 day full audit. The audit focusses on 6 major sections and 60 subsections with an extremely demanding examination of the applicant’s best-practices in Assessment, Design, Migration, Managed Services and Governance, showcasing leadership in driving some of the complex Azure Transformation journeys for clients.
During the intensive 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”.
Commenting on the Sogeti team’s commitment and involvement in the audit process, Navin Quadros, Cloud CoE Lead (OneDeliver) said: “Our Accreditation is a testament of a true one team approach. All 85+ team members participating in the audit played a pivotal role in helping the group achieve full marks in the Partner Audit Scorecard showcasing the group’s expertise, skill and capability throughout the MSP Audit process.
