intY Says Channel Partners Want More Expert Support for Microsoft Customers
A growing number of businesses need strategic support when planning their move to the cloud. Global cloud services distributor intY is meeting this gap in the market by offering iomart's Microsoft Azure consultancy services from SystemsUp to its resellers.
intY has identified a growing demand from its partners for professional services to assist with the adoption of a wide range of cloud services available on the Azure cloud platform and in particular, for implementation support and assistance around the billing for those services. It has selected iomart's public cloud consultancy SystemsUp, which has five Microsoft gold competencies covering the design and implementation of Azure public cloud and infrastructure solutions, to join its marketplace.
Craig Joseph, Chief Operating Officer for intY said: "By partnering with iomart and SystemsUp and bringing their Azure consultancy services to our cloud marketplace CASCADE, intY are offering Partners the support they need with any customer implementations of Azure. SystemsUp will consult with the Partner and customer to help them map their journey to the cloud and ensure a smooth transition to Azure."
intY's award-winning self-service portal CASCADE allows resellers to browse, order and manage services on behalf of their customers at all hours of the day. Both intY and iomart are part of the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program which allows partners to provide direct billing as well as sales and management of services.
It is the first full 'move to the cloud' consultancy service to be offered in CASCADE.
Marc Esmiley, iomart's Director of Cloud Services, said: "Businesses often don't have the skillset in-house to know how to get the very best out of Azure. Our cloud consultants have an industry-wide reputation for successful and complex project delivery using Azure to the public and private sector. They have the expertise to help at every stage - from creating a Proof of Concept, to testing and implementation, to ongoing management."
intY partners will be able to purchase the following consultancy services:
- Azure Cloud Value Workshop - a two-day workshop that assesses potential use cases and helps you identify the appropriate Azure services to meet your business needs
- Azure Pre-Sales - a structured call with a consultant to discuss whether the Azure services you are considering are the right ones to produce the business outcomes you require
- Azure assuredDelivery® - full project design and delivery, incorporating requirements, discovery, design, testing and implementation right through to final sign-off using refined project delivery methodology
