CAPSiDE, a leading European Cloud Managed Services Provider, has announced today that it has renewed its participation in the Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP) program. CAPSiDE, an NTT Company which specialises in the design, automation and 24×7 operation of Critical Digital Platforms, was one of the first 32 Microsoft partners worldwide to participate in the new program.

The Azure Expert MSP is the hardest Microsoft program, as it involves both a pre-audit assessment and on-site audit, and it is a recognition only available for Microsoft Gold Cloud Partners. It is designed to make the most relevant and capable partners discoverable to customers while providing those recognised partners with full support.

Public Cloud has become the go-to technology for any company that wants to leverage its capabilities towards better and more efficient processes. When approaching this Cloud journey, they need partners with a deep level of expertise and experience to guide them. Inclusion in the Microsoft Azure Expert MSP program is awarded to partners that meet a stringent set of requirements, including verified proof of excellence in customer delivery and technical expertise, and the successful completion of an independent audit of their managed services, people, processes, and technologies. Only the most high-fidelity cloud managed service providers are awarded the Azure Expert Managed Service Provider badge, intended to give customers confidence when selecting a partner to help them meet their digital transformation goals.

Each recognized partner had to pass a rigorous third-party audit process to renew its Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider status. CAPSiDE showed excellent strategic, technical and managerial competences and efficient automation of service delivery and monitoring. It also has been recognised again for its outstanding talent, motivational and knowledge management practices.

We are honoured to renew our Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider status. We keep our hard work each day to provide the most robust Cloud services while empowering the expertise of our team and ensuring the reliability of our operations.
