We are proud to announce LeapPoint’s new status as a Microsoft Azure Silver Partner.

The Silver Cloud Platform Competency is an acknowledgment given only to those who specialize in building, integrating and/or extending solutions or infrastructures using the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

An organization can only qualify for the Cloud Platform Competency after demonstrating proven Azure performance, passing rigorous technology assessments, meeting the Azure consumption requirement and providing references that not only prove successful implementation of cloud projects but satisfactory customer service. Due to the challenging criteria, achieving a silver competency places LeapPoint among a small percentage of Microsoft partners worldwide.

The Silver Cloud Platform Competency demonstrates LeapPoint’s dedication to meeting the evolving business infrastructure needs of Microsoft’s customers and enables LeapPoint to keep clients ahead with innovative solutions that help them move faster, achieve more and save money.
