Coretek Attains Azure Expert MSP Certification

Nov 18, 2021

The Coretek team is excited to announce their new Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP) Certification. Coretek is one of only a small group of US partners to achieve this recognition of excellence.

What is a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP?

The Azure Expert MSP program is a new global initiative from Microsoft that highlights and promotes the most capable partners and helps bring visibility to their services and expertise.

Coretek is proud to be one of the first five Azure Expert MSPs globally. The requirements of this designation are the most stringent of any Microsoft program. The certification process requires partners to validate their skills, successful customer projects, ability to scale, and a commitment to providing next-generation managed service offerings.

Azure Expert MSP Requirements

The Azure Expert MSP program is designed for partners who offer full lifecycle managed services to customers. It is not suited to partners who offer or deliver managed services through an indirect channel.

Microsoft employs an independent third-party audit company to assess compliance against the Azure Expert MSP Audit requirements. The Azure Expert MSP audit is a systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining evidence and evaluating objectively to determine the extent to which audit criteria are met.

An Azure Expert MSP must:

  • Be able to guide customers towards innovative business solutions to support their digital transformation efforts and high performance, agile environments.
  • Deliver & manage a full customer cloud engagement lifecycle: Plan/Design → Build/Migrate → Run/Optimize.
  • Implement Cloud Assessments, Cloud Enablement Services and Cloud Operations, supported by state-of-the-art Cloud Tooling that enables margin expansion at scale
  • Demonstrate use of automation and well-articulated repeatable process and policy for operations, security and management.
  • Drive application innovation
  • Manage from the application/solution down, not from the infrastructure up.
  • Operate an automated CMP integrated with Microsoft Cloud Platform. CMP can be a combination of homegrown tools, enabling 3rd party ISV applications and APIs and Microsoft native tools.
  • Provide application-level performance monitoring and management tied to business outcomes.
