CSI Helps Customers Embrace the Cloud Through Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Programme

Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider

As a managed service provider, CSI is pleased to announce we are now selling through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme. This licensing model enables CSI to be the centre of the customer relationship by providing direct billing, sell combined offers and services, as well as directly provision, manage and support products and services.

Jason Normanton, Head of Cloud Services, CSI says, “We’ve experienced 900% revenue growth in our Azure practice, so it made sense to become a direct Microsoft CSP partner to simplify our customer relationships and provide one point of contact for them. During April we will also be introducing a digital commerce platform, (online marketplace), which will facilitate the buying and selling of cloud solutions certified to run on Azure as well as our own cloud-based services. Providing access to Microsoft Azure certified solutions at the touch of a button is an important value add to our customers”.

“Customers are adopting cloud-based solutions to drive digital transformation like never before, and we’re thrilled to expand the capabilities for cloud partners under the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider programme,” said Rodney Clark, Corporate Vice President, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief at Microsoft. “By joining the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider programme, partners will deepen customer relationships and expand business opportunities in the cloud.”

CSI works in complex, highly regulated workloads within Microsoft Azure where security is of paramount importance to the delivery of a successful service to the client and their customers, for example, financial services, building societies and challenger banks. Providing one point of contact for all things Microsoft simplifies relationships and helps protect security. CSI has invested heavily in building its service capability and now has 20 certified Microsoft Azure engineers.
