Austin, Texas – July 7, 2020 – Catapult Systems, a digital solutions and services firm, is pleased to announce that they have achieved advanced specialization designations from Microsoft for both Windows and SQL Server Migration to Azure and Modernization of Web Applications to Azure. This recognition is achieved by a small number of partners who demonstrate deep knowledge in specific technology solution areas through certifications, exams and customer experience, along with passing a detailed audit.

The Windows and SQL Server to Azure advanced specialization designations demonstrate a partner’s ability to help customers eliminate risks and successfully transition Windows Server & SQL Server workloads to Azure with confidence. Partners are carefully reviewed to ensure that that they have expertise in identifying customer risks, networking & infrastructure architecture, building high availability and resilient environments, migration experience, automation and security.

The Modernization of Web Applications to Azure Specialization identifies partners adept at helping customers modernize their applications for the cloud to take advantage of advanced Azure capabilities, rather than completing a simple lift and shift into Azure IaaS. Partners must demonstrate deep technical skills in application development, Azure Services, DevOps, cloud migrations and tools such as containerization.

“Catapult is proud to be among the top .01% of all Microsoft partners, with 14 Gold and 2 Silver competencies.” said Jim Booth, VP National Practices at Catapult. “While these competencies measure our broader experience across the Microsoft stack, we are excited for the opportunity to showcase our in-depth capabilities in these two critical areas. We believe that these two specializations will help set us apart from other partners and help customers understand that our delivery teams are among the best in the business.”
