Foundry4 Achieves a Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform Competency

Foundry4 demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.

London, UK - February 3 2021

Foundry4 today announced it has attained a Gold Cloud Platform competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world and distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Foundry4, part of AIM listed Panoply Group, works with many high profile government organisations and regulated industry customers to improve their digital services. Becoming a Microsoft Gold Partner will allow Foundry4 to combine strengths with Microsoft, speeding up deployment and improvement of Microsoft Azure environments.

Microsoft is a pivotal technology partner for many of our customers - more so now than ever as they deal with Covid-related pressures, and address the need to have a modern, efficient IT set-up. Increasingly, our work is centred around leveraging the power and scale of the Azure platform and the extensive ecosystem of Microsoft services,Said Stuart Arthur, CTO, Foundry4.

“We are really pleased to have been awarded Gold Partner status, and are confident that our closer working relationship with Microsoft will bring real benefits and increase the value offered to our clients such as Ofgem, Wales and West Utilities and The British Red Cross.”

“By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” Said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp.

“These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions.”

The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
