Go for Gold: The Benefits of Working with a Microsoft Gold Partner
[Last updated May 28, 2020]
SaaSplaza’s dedication to our global customers has earned us our Gold Partner membership with Microsoft. We are working hard and dedicating ourselves to be the best managed services provider possible. While we hate to brag too much, we would like to share with you all of the Gold and Silver Competencies we have achieved and what they mean when it comes to choosing a Microsoft Expert Managed Services Provider for your cloud needs.
What are competencies? What do they mean to your business?
At Microsoft, every competency is first achieved at the Silver level by demonstrating the consistent ability to deliver specialized services. To achieve the Gold level, a company must meet a certain number of Microsoft product licenses bought and sold via the Cloud Solution Provider Program (CSP) and consume a certain amount of Azure. In addition, a company must have a certain number of employees, usually with a higher volume of said employees passing Microsoft exams and a larger number of customers being helped on their cloud journey. Our in-house experts are to thank for our continued aptitude as we navigate changes and new developments in technology so we can further enable you to focus on your core business.
Our Gold Microsoft Competencies
This Gold standard award highlights our expertise in providing knowledge of development services tailored to construction migrating legacy apps to Azure. We can advise your developers on best practices to help them make correct future-proof decisions. With our parent company RIB Software, an expert in construction technology, you can rest assured you’re never far from expert knowledge.
With the Azure Consumption option, Hosting option, and Distribution option, our Gold competency in this area proves we can enable customers to modernize their infrastructure and migrate their applications and data to the cloud successfully as a Cloud Solution Provider.
The achievement of obtaining the Managed Services Partner option and Distributor option showcases our expertise in deployments of the full Office 365 experience in an enterprise environment. Office 365 is the global leader in commercial-grade productivity solutions; let’s ensure your business gets the most out of it.
With the Data Analytics Specialist option under our belt in this Gold competency, we can promise our customers actionable business insights that they can use to transform their businesses.

Using smart tooling, we can make data driven recommendations and better predictions.
With our Datacenter Solutions option we have proven our abilities in transforming datacenters to become more flexible, scalable, and cost-effective with solutions that can bridge on-premise and in the cloud options for customers across the globe.
