North East IT Solutions company strengthens offering with cloud accreditations


May 24, 2017

A North East-based technology solutions provider has strengthened its cloud computing offering with accreditations from Microsoft and Amazon.

Perfect Image, based at the Cobalt Business Park in North Tyneside, is celebrating its enhanced cloud computing offering after achieving both Microsoft Gold Cloud Small and Midmarket Solutions competency and Advanced Tier Amazon Partner status following increased demand for the company’s cloud services.

In order to achieve the Microsoft Gold competency, Perfect Image was required to demonstrate a ‘best-in-class’ ability and commitment to meet the evolving needs of customers in today’s mobile-first world.

Talking about the Gold Cloud Solutions competency, Andrew Robson, CEO of Perfect Image, said: “This Microsoft Gold Cloud Solutions competency showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft’s products and services. To be rewarded for our success with increased support, software, and training from Microsoft has allowed us to strengthen our offering for our clients.”

Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp said: “By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology.”

In addition to the Gold status from Microsoft, Perfect Image has been promoted to the Advanced Tier partnership level with Amazon Web Services (AWS) reflecting the experience and delivery skills of their certified engineers.

Andrew Robson continued: “Microsoft Azure and AWS are the two clear leaders in public cloud provision, which is why we provide design, deployment and managed services for both platforms – as well as hybrid solutions involving both technologies.

“Our partnerships with both Microsoft and Amazon strengthen our capabilities and ensure we’re working with the latest technology to better serve our customers. Our enhanced cloud offering has helped us secure work with companies such as Northern Gas Networks, Fairstone Group, Ardent and Bellway Homes and has really accelerated our business growth.”

“These latest accreditations support our excellent reputation for cloud computing and ensure that Perfect Image is ideally placed to offer guidance to  businesses on the best route for their needs.”

As a result of the enhanced cloud offering, Perfect Image are looking to grow their dedicated cloud computing team.  An intensive six week cloud boot camp arranged by the company will help IT professionals looking for a career in cloud computing gain the skills needed to manage Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Office 365 engineering projects.

Those who take part in the cloud boot camp will receive vendor qualifications and have the opportunity to gain experience working across Perfect Image’s highly accredited cloud team, infrastructure network team and support team before becoming infrastructure engineers within the company.
