ST. CLAIR SHORES, Michigan, October 02, 2018 — WSM International, a leader in hybrid cloud adoption and migration services and a Microsoft Silver Partner, is proud to announce the achievement of two Microsoft Silver Partner Competencies in Application Development and Datacenter, respectively.
“We are delighted to receive these competencies that acknowledge the investment we’ve made in Microsoft Azure and the expertise that our team brings to our customers looking to leverage Azure and other Microsoft technologies,” said Ryan Pelerin, CEO of WSM. “Achieving these two competencies with Microsoft deepens WSM’s commitment to be experts in cloud planning, adoption, development, automation, and management.”
The Microsoft Silver Application Development Competency recognizes partners that have expertise in providing development solutions on a comprehensive and enterprise-proven platform, as well as expanded offerings on a hybrid cloud platform. Partners with this competency help customers digitally transform by leveraging Microsoft technologies to build or modernize applications in the cloud.
The Microsoft Silver Datacenter Competency recognizes partners that are known for transforming data centers into flexible, scalable, and cost-effective solutions for customers with on-prem or hybrid environments. According to IDC, 80 percent of organizations will be using a hybrid architecture by 2018. This competency demonstrates WSM’s ability to fulfill the increasing need for hybrid cloud adoption and management expertise in the marketplace.
WSM earned both Microsoft Silver Partner Competencies by obtaining customer references, meeting strict industry accreditations and performance requirements, as well as passing required certification exams. Their team has successfully completed client projects involving migrating hundreds of workloads, such including from on-premises data centers to Azure cloud computing resources, as well as optimizing workloads to run in Azure using DevOps automation tools.
