ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. — WSM International, a leader in hybrid cloud adoption and migration services, is proud to announce the company has recently achieved Microsoft Gold Partner status, the highest standard in Microsoft’s partnership program. To achieve this status, WSM has demonstrated a high level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies and can deliver best-in-class capabilities for Microsoft solutions.

“Achieving Microsoft Gold Partner status is an outcome of WSM’s investment in delivering the best solutions and technical expertise for multiple public cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure,” said Ryan Pelerin, CEO of WSM. “Not only does this achievement demonstrates our team’s deep understanding of Microsoft solutions, but now as a result of our elevated relationship with Microsoft, we can deliver additional value to our customers.”

To earn Microsoft Gold Partner status, WSM completed a Microsoft Gold Partner competency in DevOps. This accreditation recognizes the company’s best-in-class DevOps capabilities, and DevOps solution knowledge. The achievement comes one week after attaining two silver competencies in datacenter and application development.

The Microsoft DevOps competency recognizes partners that are experts in helping organizations accelerate innovation within their application development lifecycles to deliver applications faster. Microsoft Gold DevOps partners help organizations define, build, manage, and continuously release software both on-premise and in Azure by combining the power of the Microsoft development platform with a variety of industry-leading DevOps solutions.

To earn a Microsoft Gold Partner DevOps competency, partners must successfully complete exams to prove expertise in the subject area (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals), and submit customer references that demonstrate prior successful projects.

WSM has been providing DevOps services alongside migration and development services since 2014. The company’s expertise in both migration and DevOps enables Day 2 operations that allow clients to implement automated workload management post-migration.
