Sopra Steria becomes Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP)
Sopra Steria, European leader in consulting, digital services and software publishing, announced the certification of Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider. This is recognition of all the Azure services offered by the Group. Sopra Steria has the ability to provide the most relevant business solutions, cloud infrastructures and technical advice to companies to support customers in their digital transformation and manage a full lifecycle of cloud customer engagement.
Azure Expert MSP is a program created to enable Microsoft customers and teams to connect with the most knowledgeable Azure Managed Service Providers to meet specific business needs, with the following goals:
Educate customers on the most relevant and knowledgeable managed service providers. Identify the skills recognized by partners and their specialization in Azure services, as well as their experience in service management, to provide business solutions to their customers. Differentiate between MSPs who have undergone a rigorous face-to-face audit of their IT service management capabilities (through people, processes, and technologies) and who have demonstrated their ability to deliver consistent, repeatable, and high-fidelity managed services across Azure.
The services offered by Sopra Steria are created in an agile and customer-oriented manner. They combine consulting, migration and management so that the client evolves from a “Design, Build, Operate” process to a dynamic “Design, Optimize, Transform” cycle. The priority is to create value for the end user through business value metrics, service level agreements, resilience and continuous optimization to generate benefits for customers.
Issued by an independent third-party auditing company, Azure Expert MSP partners form a very advanced category of managed service partners and must deliver highly automated and repeatable solutions to enable and support large-scale cloud deployments.
We are very proud to be recognized as a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider because it confirms the abilities of the Sopra Steria Cloud Center of Excellence teams to support our customers in all aspects of their Cloud transformation journey. The great competence of our teams has demonstrated their expertise in services, processes, integration and management technologies linked to Azure in the most complex environments, explains Antonio Pealver, Managing Director of Sopra Steria Espaa.
Microsoft is pleased to count Sopra Steria among the Azure Expert MSPs. His comprehensive expertise in data centers and hybrid and multi-cloud environments, as well as his commitment to sovereign cloud, is a great advantage in enabling European organizations to adopt the cloud with confidence, concludes Rodney Clark, Corporate Vice President , Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief at Microsoft.
