Logicalis Achieves 10 Microsoft Advanced Specialisations – Poised for Digital Transformation in 2022

Melbourne, Australia – 16 December 2021: Logicalis, a global IT solutions and managed service provider, is announcing the achievement of 10 Microsoft Advanced Specialisations across Microsoft’s Azure, Security and Modern Work solutions. Logicalis Australia has also renewed its status as a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP). This achievement strengthens the commitment of both Logicalis and Microsoft to a global strategic alliance, that brings their teams together to innovate with industry leading solutions and services.

These advanced specialisations are awarded to Microsoft partners who demonstrate a deep knowledge in each specific area, extensive experience, and proven customer implementation success. The Azure Expert MSP program is a global initiative from Microsoft to highlight and promote partners with the highest level of expertise as managed service providers in assisting customers as they digitally transform their businesses, leveraging the power of Azure.

Only the most high-fidelity cloud managed service providers are awarded the Azure Expert MSP badge, intended to give customers confidence when selecting a partner to help them meet their digital transformation goals. While Logicalis Australia is a key part of a global organisation, the on-going commitment within Australia, to achieving Microsoft certifications, is a true reflection of the people and skillset Logicalis Australia has locally.

“At a time when most businesses around the world have an opportunity to pause and reflect on the ‘digital transformations’ of the last year and their outcomes, Logicalis is continuing to invest in achieving further advanced specialisations. This is to ensure we have a dedicated team of experts across security, cloud, and modern work solutions, who can address customer priorities such as revenue and business growth, operational efficiency, innovation, risk and compliance, data governance and sustainability. These Microsoft Advanced Specialisations and our Azure Expert MSP accreditation confirm Logicalis is the partner of choice, to help businesses rethink their approach to digital transformation” says Anthony Woodward, CEO Logicalis Australia.
