Automated Intelligence has successfully received Gold status for the Microsoft DevOps competency for the first time.

We also have received Gold for the Microsoft Cloud Platform competency for the second year running, meaning we are a Microsoft Double Gold partner.

Microsoft competencies demonstrate areas of technical capability, so we are delighted that our solutions and expertise have been recognised by Microsoft as best in class.

AI has been a Microsoft Gold partner since 2013, having achieved the Application Development competency for the past six years.

In 2019 we were awarded:

  • Cloud Platform Competency: We were recognised for driving Azure Cloud adoption amongst customers, as well as passing a number of examinations.
  • DevOps Competency: We were recognised for delivering software lifecycle management for customers using Microsoft’s development platform, as well as passing technical assessments.

As a result of being named a double Gold partner, we now receive numerous benefits, including business guidance and training, as well as market, product and technical support.

Chris McAtackney, Head of Engineering at AI, said, “This is the second year we have been named as a Double Gold partner which is a fantastic accolade for the team. This demonstrates that we are trusted by Microsoft, that we have a proven relationship with Microsoft, and that we have the expertise within the team to pass the rigorous requirements. We look forward to building on these competencies this year with Microsoft for the benefit of our customers.”

What a great achievement for all at AI!
