Going for gold: Halian attains Microsoft Gold Partner status

Halian, an international IT services provider, has achieved Microsoft’s Gold Partner status in two competencies, Cloud Platform and Data Centre.

This announcement demonstrates the company’s expertise in creating value added and innovative services for its customer base using Microsoft technologies.

Halian’s knowledge of the Azure platform opens up further opportunity for customers to modernise their infrastructures, migrate applications and data, and build better analytics in the cloud. Gold Partner status in data centre also recognises Halian’s expertise in transformative data centre services, creating scalable and cost-effective solutions for clients.

Spending on public cloud services is forecast to reach $277 billion by 2021, and according to IDC, customers are increasingly investing in hybrid cloud services that provide agile, scalable, and on-demand infrastructure.

By 2018, 80% of organisations will have a commitment to hybrid architecture, and Microsoft’s comprehensive portfolio of solutions across data centre and cloud is therefore a key offering for Halian’s customers.

Halian Group sales director Stuart Fry commented, “Halian’s Microsoft Gold Partner competency differentiates us as a provider of public cloud, management, and virtualisation deployment services. Recognition of our cloud platform and data centre competency will be a key part of growing our managed customer infrastructure and managed services business moving forward, using SaaS and PaaS solutions on Azure Marketplace.
