AUSTIN, Texas, October 7, 2021 — Catapult, a digital solutions and services firm, is pleased to announce it has achieved its tenth Microsoft Advanced Specialization, a key measure of technical prowess in the Microsoft cloud, placing them among Microsoft’s most decorated US systems integrator partners.

Achieving even a single advanced specialization is a significant achievement within the Microsoft partner ecosystem, as they are challenging to qualify for and are only awarded to Microsoft Partners with deep technical knowledge and expertise in specific solution areas. Advanced specializations require demonstration of expertise and high standards of delivery and support through a gold-level Microsoft competency in the business area, subject-matter employee certifications, customer references and often require passing a third-party audit demonstrating evidence of hands-on experience and proven success.

“I am proud to say that we have now achieved 10 Microsoft Advanced Specializations. These Specializations and our 17 competencies demonstrate Catapult has the highest level of expertise and experience in the Microsoft cloud,” said Terri Burmeister, Catapult CEO. “This achievement is proof of our world-class delivery team’s level of knowledge, talent, and commitment to our customers and to Microsoft.”
