Trustmarque recognised as Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider
Trustmarque, a leading Microsoft Cloud Solutions Partner, today announced it has been recognised as a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (AEMSP). This recognition is the latest in a long list of achievements for Trustmarque, after achieving all seven cloud partner designations in March 2023.
The latest accolade of AEMSP was awarded following a rigorous assessment by a Microsoft-appointed auditor, spanning all aspects of the customer lifecycle from initial assessment through architecture and design—and our trusted relationship with Azure customers for ongoing support, security and optimisation. This AEMSP distinction is currently held by only a select group Microsoft partners worldwide.
Commenting on the news, Trustmarque Chief Executive Officer, Simon Williams said:
“This recognition is a testament to Trustmarque’s commitment to providing next-generation, scalable managed services. I am proud of the hard work and dedication of our colleagues who have made this happen, from our delivery teams to our Managed Service practice and our Marketing, Sales, and Alliances teams. They are united by their desire to help our customers adopt innovative technology and premium managed services to deliver real-life impact with Microsoft Azure.”
The Microsoft Azure Expert MSP programme recognises Microsoft partners with the proven expertise and capability to deliver the highest quality of managed end-to-end Microsoft Azure cloud services, from initial planning and design through to implementation, operation and optimisation. As more businesses move to the cloud, the programme allows them to choose a Managed Service Provider with a deep level of cloud expertise and experience.
Commenting on the news, Eleri Gibbon, Microsoft’s Director of UK Channel Partners added:
“It’s fantastic to see Trustmarque go from strength to strength, and secure their title as Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider. The team has invested in building deep Microsoft Azure knowledge and services and we are pleased to recognise this effort.”
Microsoft’s Global Partner Services UK Lead, Orla McGrath commented:
“We are delighted to welcome Trustmarque to the AEMSP program and to reaffirm their commitment to providing world-class Microsoft solutions in the UK. Their track record for Azure excellence and dedication to their customers makes them a trusted partner for Azure projects.”
The news comes after earlier this year, Trustmarque became one of the UK’s most qualified Microsoft cloud partners, achieving all six cloud partner designations, plus the coveted seventh designation for Microsoft Cloud.
Out of 400,000 global organisations in the Microsoft Partner Network, we received the sixth designation in ‘business applications’. By succeeding in all six designations, we unlocked the highest tier of the program and received the seventh designation for overall excellence in the Microsoft Cloud.
