IMC recognised as one of the leading providers for cloud solutions
The German full-service provider achieved the “Microsoft Cloud Platform Gold” Competency
10. June 2016
“The future is in the cloud”: With this call, Microsoft, a key player in the IT world, addressed its partners at the beginning of the year. As one of the top partners within the Microsoft network, IMC has been awarded with the “Microsoft Cloud Platform Gold” Competency for its longstanding expertise in cloud computing.
Cloud Computing enables software providers like IMC to give clients access to their solutions not only in classic on-premise versions (run within the company’s IT-system ) but also via Software as a Service (SaaS). Models for SaaS may for instance be an alternative for small or medium-sized companies when it comes to purchasing expensive hardware and/or software as there is no need for on-site server installations.
Both the Learning Management System, IMC Learning Suite, and the Electronic Performance Support System, IMC Process Guide, are available as a cloud solution. With IMC Teach, a free of charge cloud service is available, that combines the authoring software for the creation of learning content and the learning platform.
Using Microsoft’s Azure Cloud, IMC is relying on a competent long-term partner. Therefore clients receive a tailored solution for any requirement. Microsoft offers cloud services from computer centres based in Germany as well as global hosting. Furthermore, Microsoft supports the international standard for data security in the cloud (ISO/IEC 22018).
The Cloud Platform Competency is awarded to partners specialized in providing the infrastructure and SaaS solutions for Microsoft Azure. Companies with this competency not only need to fulfil certain turnover criteria and need to be able to present references, they also need to prove their Azure Cloud expertise in a test.
In 2015, IMC already gained the Microsoft Cloud Platform Silver Competency. Since 2014, the company has held an Application Development Gold Competency. This recognizes IMC as an expert in developing individual and user-friendly applications using Microsoft technologies.
