At Microsoft, we take pride in the fact that we have the biggest and best partner ecosystem in Canada, and it is incredible to see the amazing work that occurs each and every day. Digital transformation for many organizations can be a big undertaking, which is why it is important to have various types of partners like Systems Integrators and Managed Service Providers who can help customers navigate everything from simple migrations to complex cloud deployments. Following the rapid growth and positive response of Consulting Services offers on AppSource, we delivered the capability to Azure Marketplace customers in the US in May. Today, we are excited to announce that they are now available in Canada.
These new listing options expand Azure Marketplace beyond ISVs and applications so that customers can find a wide range of consulting services, such as assessments, onsite workshops, proofs of concept, and implementations, each backed by a partner with deep Azure expertise (Microsoft Partner Gold and Silver Competency). The Gold and Silver Cloud Platform competency partners help customers modernize their infrastructure, migrate applications and data to the cloud, and build analytics solutions on data platforms in the cloud, signaling their ability to deliver quality solutions in this specialized area of business.
Whether you are seeking someone to help learn new skills in Azure, handle the unique parameters of migrating a sensitive workload, or create high-impact visual storytelling to drive business decision making, Azure Marketplace makes accessing this expertise easier than ever. The partners in Azure Marketplace can help you get started with confidence to right-size and optimize your cloud. Building on your internal capabilities, these partners provide tailored services to help you quickly and securely grow their business.
The Canadian launch includes solutions for a wide variety of scenarios from Adoxio, Alithya, Amtra Solutions, Architech, Betach, Blue Silver Shift, Compusoft Advisors, Dimensional Strategies, Imaginet, Itergy, ITSouth CA, New Signature, Qnovate, Objectsharp, Optimus, ProserveIT, Sierra Systems, Softlanding, Steeves, T4G, and Wipro.
