What is a Microsoft competency?

According to Microsoft, ‘a competency is a designation that demonstrates to customers your technical capability to deliver a solution on a Microsoft technology or platform’.

Achieving Microsoft accreditations demonstrates commitment from Microsoft and Trustmarque to working hand in hand, to assure results for customers deploying Microsoft’s world-leading intelligent, cloud-first, digital technologies.

James Butler, Chief Technology Officer at Trustmarque, attributed the positive relationship between Trustmarque and Microsoft to both parties having a shared and common goal in helping customers to excel from their digital transformation.

He commented: “In today’s ever-changing world, our customers are looking for partners who share the burden of the risk and challenges of transformation. They want partners who can understand their varied challenges and the difficulty of dealing with often simultaneous pressures of cost savings, operational service delivery and creating business value.

“Investing time and money in achieving Microsoft accreditations demonstrates commitment from Microsoft and Trustmarque to working hand in hand, to assure results for customers deploying Microsoft’s world-leading intelligent, cloud-first, digital technologies.”

He believes that Trustmarque’s strong partnership with Microsoft goes beyond the deep technical expertise held by Trustmarque’s accredited Microsoft consultants, to include a holistic understanding of customer needs and the ability to “align multiple skillsets within that single view of the overall business needs and objectives”.

He continues: “Our range of Microsoft accreditations demonstrates that Trustmarque has both deep expertise and wide coverage that encapsulates today’s evolving technology landscape, making us a better Microsoft Partner UK to our customers.  A simpler route to value and results, aligned to your strategy and delivered in partnership.”
