Certification recognizes Navisite among the most highly-qualified Microsoft Azure MSPs who pass an in-depth rigorous audit to receive enhanced support and drive greater value for clients

Andover, Mass. – Navisite, a part of Spectrum Enterprise, the enterprise-focused arm of Charter Communications, Inc., today announced that it has been recognized as a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP) following an in-depth audit. With this designation, Navisite joins a select group of Microsoft Azure MSPs with proven credentials in migrating and managing mission-critical enterprise workloads in Azure at scale.

“While Azure has quickly established itself in the enterprise segment, most companies are experiencing slower than expected adoption given limited expertise and bandwidth,” said Sumeet Sabharwal, Group Vice President and General Manager, Navisite. “With over 20 years in transformation and managing complex, mission-critical enterprises workloads, Navisite brings proven best practices and deep technical expertise aimed at accelerating Azure adoption. This recognition, as an Azure Expert Managed Service Provider, further highlights our strong partnership with Microsoft aimed at unlocking digital transformation within enterprises.”

The Microsoft Azure MSP certification was unveiled last year as a new distinction available to qualifying partners. To qualify, Microsoft conducted an audit of Navisite’s managed services capabilities across key dimensions including talent, support processes, reference architecture, solution design and migration methodology.

“As Microsoft supports organizations on their digital transformation projects, partners continue to play a critical role in helping organizations optimize their Azure deployments,” said Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, OCP, Microsoft. “We are pleased to recognize Navisite as a member of the Microsoft Azure Expert MSP program. Navisite has demonstrated a commitment to our customers and contributes to the strong growth of innovative projects on Azure.”

Navisite has a proven track record for delivering a variety of tailored Azure solutions, backed by extensive experience, including:

  • Elite five-star managed services team: Employs more than 400 Microsoft-certified experts with more than 1,400 certifications;
  • Customized offerings: Develops tailored solutions based on each client’s unique specifications;
  • Strong service operations: Manages environments using an ITIL process management methodology leveraging a modern cloud-based service provider scale with 15-minute incident response times;
  • High availability: Designs a financially-backed Microsoft service level agreement (SLA) of up to 99.99 percent.

Ceridian, a global human capital management company and Navisite client, has benefitted from Navisite’s abilities to manage multi-cloud environments. "We chose Navisite as our partner for growth in the public cloud because of its capability and expertise with Microsoft Azure. The team’s ability to understand the application stack from top to bottom is unique for a partner to provide,” said Warren Perlman, CIO of Ceridian.

Navisite has more than 20 years of experience deploying and managing cloud, on-premises and colocation environments with 10,000 plus virtual machines under management. More information about Navisite’s Azure Cloud management offerings can be found here.
