Melbourne – 05 March 2020 – Thomas Duryea Logicalis, has today announced it has achieved Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP) status on behalf of the Logicalis group globally, one of only 65 firms in the world to achieve such accreditation.
The Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP) program is a global initiative from Microsoft to highlight and promote the partners with the highest level of expertise in assisting customers build, migrate and run their Azure investments.
The Azure Expert MSP certification also recognises the investments that have been made by Thomas Duryea Logicalis to establish a global Cloud Centre of Excellence in Melbourne for the broader Logicalis group.
The Logicalis Cloud Centre of Excellence team has been led by TDL CTO, Toby Alcock and had representation across several areas of TDL’s business. Audit preparation took 7 months and 2500 hours for the successful completion by an independent third party who had no remediating actions for the team before a pass was issued. To retain the accreditation, TDL will be audited on an annual basis.
TDL has a deep 15-year heritage with Microsoft and well-established Cloud and Modern Workspace practices. In addition, Michael Chanter, TDL’s Australian based CEO, is executive sponsor for the global Microsoft relationship at Logicalis group level.
Chanter said, “The Azure Expert status is a milestone achievement for TDL and Logicalis. It reflects the depth of expertise around Azure within TDL but also recognises the deep investments we’ve made in developing IP that enables customers to accelerate migration to Azure whilst simultaneously delivering a much higher level of security and compliance for their production environment.”
Rachel Bondi, General Manager, Chief Partner Officer, Microsoft Australia added, “Sincere congratulations to Thomas Duryea Logicalis for this important achievement. Microsoft is delighted to confer this certification which recognises the investment and expertise of the company.
