Knowit achieved the rare Azure Expert Managed Services Provider status
Published 25 Jan 2023
Of the hundreds of thousands of Microsoft partners, there are only around 100 Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP) partners worldwide. Today, Knowit is one of the few Azure Expert MSP partners in the Nordics.
Microsoft’s Azure Expert MSP program is designed to ensure that companies and organizations can connect with the most capable Azure partners. To earn the Azure Expert MSP, partners must qualify the prerequisites and pass a strict two-day audit to prove their cloud knowledge, processes, and level of customer handling and satisfaction.
The earned partner status for Azure is an important achievement for Knowit and validates our in-depth knowledge, capability and experience in architecting, deploying, and managing the optimal Azure services for our customers. It also proves our expertise in managing complex global cloud environments.
“The Azure Expert MSP is the highest level of partner certification from Microsoft on Azure, and the partner status underlines our position as a leading Microsoft Azure partner. It’s also a testimony to our operation and implementation skills vetted and verified by an external auditor,” says Stefan Andersson Nystedt, Nordic Microsoft Business Alliance Lead at Knowit.
As Azure evolves, so will our expertise
The framework is built so that customers can trust that the partners who have achieved the Azure Expert MSP status are continuously working to remain Azure experts. This is because the journey doesn’t end after passing the audit. To retain the rare partner status, Azure MSPs need to continue to meet the prerequisites annually and complete a progress audit every year. By doing this, we at Knowit can ensure continuous improvement and expertise in the latest technology standards to our customers.
