Version 1 ranks in the top tier of Microsoft partners in the UK and Ireland and is leading the market in terms of Cloud advisory services.

The renewal is the culmination of a great study effort in the over 100 strong team of Microsoft Certified Professionals with hundreds of exams completed and numerous enterprise customer references submitted.

What do these certifications mean for our Microsoft customers?

For Enterprise Applications, we have maintained our Gold standard in Application Development demonstrating ability to provide solutions in Cloud and traditional architectures across all devices.

This is enhanced with Silver Application Integration recognising the importance of solution integration including with BizTalk.

This is complimented by our Gold Competencies in Data Analytics and Data Platform.

The Collaboration & Content Gold Competency is the productivity powerhouse of SharePoint and Office 365 applications and services.

In the Infrastructure and core services arena we have Gold in Data Centre and Devices and Deployment supported by Messaging (Microsoft Exchange) and now a Gold competency in Identity and Access for reliable security.

The Cloud Productivity competency covers the entire Microsoft Azure and Office 365 suite of ever expanding services.

Finally, we are proud to maintain our Silver Software Asset Management as an offering for our customers building on deep expertise in our License Management Capability.

These advancements in our certification programme are testament to our commitment to deliver the broadest range of Microsoft solutions to the UK and Irish markets.

The Microsoft Partnership renewal comes on the back of Version 1’s recent win as Microsoft’s Application Development Partner of the Year for Ireland 2015.
