RIB Cloud Validated as Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider by Microsoft

RIB Cloud, a world leading cloud provider of Managed Microsoft Azure and Dynamics Services, is proud to announce that it has earned the status of Microsoft Azure Expert MSP. The program certifies < 0,5% of all MSPs today as the most qualified Managed Azure Services providers in the world and attests to their capacity in providing advanced cloud expertise and management support.

“Digital Transformation is not just a cliché anymore. Many of our 800 global digital business clients want to innovate faster and increase competitive advantage through the Cloud. The expertise to do this is scarce in the market. We are excited to receive the recognition that SaaSplaza is part of this exclusive Azure Expert MSP program,” says CEO Berend-Jan van Maanen. “This status is not only a certificate of excellence for our team of experts, but also a testament to our clients and partners; being a leading global Managed Azure Services provider that is always there for our customers with expertise and support.”

Azure Expert MSPs complete a rigorous audit by an independent third-party auditor, verifying people, process and systems, and provide multiple customer references of managed Azure services projects delivered over the last 12 months. Earning this status means a company has proven proficiency and skills, from datacenter lift-and-shift to born-in-cloud new applications, and everything in between. This framework is built so that organizations can trust that the MSPs who have earned this recognition are continuously working to remain true Azure experts.

“Microsoft Azure offers a wealth of functionality and is at the forefront of digital transformation with services like containerization, microservices, advanced security options and DevOps,” says Dennis Schut, CTO at RIB Cloud. “We realize operational excellence and customer value by making use of these innovative technologies for our customers and partners, and I’m proud that Microsoft acknowledges this expertise by awarding us with Azure Expert MSP status.”
