SXiQ Has Earned the Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialisation
Melbourne – 13/04/2022 – SXiQ, an IBM company, today announced it has achieved Microsoft’s Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialisation, a validation of a solution partner’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and expertise in migrating Windows Server and SQL Server-based workloads to Azure.
Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their migration practices, are able to earn the Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Azure Advanced Specialisation certification.
As companies look to modernise their applications and take full advantage of the benefits that cloud computing can deliver, and with the recent end-of-support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2, they are looking for a partner with advanced skills to assess, plan, and migrate their existing workloads to the cloud.
Frank Oliva, COO at SXiQ said, “This specialisation is further recognition of the expertise SXiQ brings in delivering highly complex solutions, across multiple critical areas of technology and business with the highest level of quality. Our purpose is empowering our customers to unleash the immense technical and business benefits of the cloud and we are proud of Microsoft’s recognition of our capabilities in this space.”
Rodney Clark, Corporate Vice President, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief at Microsoft added, “The Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure advanced specialisation highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to migrating Windows-based workloads over to Azure. SXiQ clearly demonstrated that they have both the skills and the experience to offer clients a path to successful migration so that they can start enjoying the benefits of being in the cloud.”
