March 7, 2022, Dubai UAE: Following news of SEIDOR Group’s rebranding, SEIDOR MENA is pleased to announce that in recognition of its efforts, it has been granted Microsoft Tier 1 Partner status, resulting in a world-class service that prepares customers to success. Companies that partner with Tier 1 CSPs benefit from expert support and quality solutions that help them get the most out of their cloud network.
Microsoft has a policy of strictly evaluating all of its partners, and several criteria must be met before a certification is awarded. Microsoft maintains its reputation as a leader in IT solutions and software by demanding the highest level of performance from its partners. As such, Microsoft CSP Tier 1 Partners have the highest level of proficiency and expertise with Microsoft technologies as well as best-in-class capabilities for deploying Microsoft cloud solutions.
“Our close partnership with Microsoft will help our customers improve productivity and innovation in the cloud. As a Microsoft Tier 1 Partner, we are recognized as a recommended reseller for Microsoft cloud products and services. This demonstrates that we have invested heavily in our infrastructure to provide the quality of service demanded by Microsoft,” said Ignacio Ruiz de Eguilaz, General Manager of SEIDOR MENA. “Being a Tier 1 Cloud Solution Provider allows us to work more closely with Microsoft and ultimately provide our customers with better service.”
What is Microsoft Tier 1 Cloud Solution Provider status?
Getting certified is not easy and membership is not unlimited. Achieving a Level 1 partnership takes a lot of time and effort. Our team has followed all the necessary steps to be able to offer certain key services that help us to become a level 1 partner. To access this status, SEIDOR must prove that it offers more than the simple resale of Microsoft products, but also fully managed professional services around these products.
“Organizations in the region and beyond are using the power of the cloud to improve productivity, transform the way people work and innovate,” said Julien Bertin, Azure Business Group Lead, Microsoft MEA. “Today’s cloud capabilities allow individuals to fully utilize solutions designed for the modern hybrid world across industries. And it is with pleasure that we can build on this level 1 partnership with SEIDOR, as they offer the best to customers in the region while maintaining the highest quality standards. We are excited to see Seidor supporting organizations reach their full potential on their digital transformation journey and have lasting impact with Microsoft Cloud innovations.”
This status allows Seidor to develop its volume of activity and consolidate its positioning by strengthening its presence as a provider of cloud solutions in the Middle East, a region in which SEIDOR has a strong penetration. Likewise, Seidor positions itself as a leading IT consulting firm in the MENA region, with a team of 125 professionals and operations in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt, Lebanon and in Israel.
Additionally, this status allows Seidor to increase direct support for SAP customers considering migrating to Microsoft Cloud. It also complements the company’s suite of business services and solutions within SAP and other technologies to continue helping businesses make decisions through different solutions.
