If you’re not a computer expert then how do know if an IT support company can actually do what they say they can do?
As a business owner you need to know your IT systems are reliable and secure, but your eyes probably start to glaze over when people begin talking about hardware integration or cloud computing. That’s why Microsoft’s Partner Network has become the way around the world of ensuring an organisation’s competency – with IT companies gaining accreditation directly from Microsoft, from the one of the world’s most trusted computing companies.
Humber IT Ltd, one of East Yorkshire’s leading IT firms based at C4Di in Hull, have just gained Microsoft Silver Partner Status for Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions Competency. This means that Microsoft certifies that Humber IT can provide a range of Microsoft cloud computing solutions for businesses with up to 5,000 employees.
We’ve been a Microsoft Partner since we started,’ said Phil Paterson, Humber IT’s Lead Consultant. ‘We’re very proud to reach this level, as we’re the only company this side of Leeds with this certification.
To gain Silver Partner status, Humber IT had to pass exams in a range of Microsoft cloud software, as well as demonstrate competency in migrating systems such as email and file storage to the cloud through submitting verified case studies and client feedback.
Most people assume cloud computing is expensive, but this isn’t the case anymore,’ added Phil Paterson. ‘We tend to just think of large corporates using the cloud, but that power can now be brought to small and medium sized businesses.
As more and more small and medium sized businesses in the Humber area discover the power of cloud computing, it’s certain that Humber IT will continue to benefit from this growth in the years to come.
