Hilversum, The Netherlands, October 5th, 2022 – Xpirit, Part of Xebia, celebrates qualifying as Microsoft Solutions Partner in four Partner Designations, including all Azure areas.

Today, Xpirit announces its qualification as a Microsoft Solutions partner in four Solution Partner Designations: Infrastructure, Security, Data and AI, and Digital and App Innovation. By qualifying for these four designations, Xpirit qualifies for all possible Azure areas. Furthermore, they also qualify for the Security area, since we strongly believe security is a crucial and holistic part of every cloud transformation.

Max Verhorst, Chief Commercial Officer“By qualifying as Solutions Partner in these four designations, Xpirit is once again recognized as a mature Microsoft Partner, possessing all the necessary capabilities to guide customers successfully through their entire cloud transformation journey. From building a secure cloud platform to managing the infrastructure and utilizing the data that comes from it. This puts us in the unique position to be a one-stop-shop for cloud transformation and optimization on Azure.”

“By attaining Solutions Partner designations, Xpirit demonstrates true commitment to meeting customer technology needs today and into the future,” said Dan Rippey, Program Director for the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program. “Microsoft Solutions Partners have demonstrated performance, skilling, and customer success in solution areas aligned to the Microsoft Cloud, and Xpirit’s proficiency and expertise of Microsoft technology is instrumental in helping our mutual customers continue to drive innovative solutions.”

Kubernetes on Azure and DevOps with GitHub on Azure Specializations

On top of qualifying for the four Solutions Partner Designations, Xpirit has also earned Specializations for Kubernetes on Azure and DevOps with GitHub on Azure. Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit, can earn these Specializations.

The Kubernetes on Azure Specialization is a validation and testament to our knowledge, experience, and proven expertise in deploying and managing production workloads in the cloud using containers and managing hosted Kubernetes environments in Microsoft Azure.

With the DevOps with GitHub on Azure Specialization, Xpirit shows its proven experience and success in implementing secure and compliant by default cloud and software development practices by applying DevOps principles and using Azure Cloud and GitHub (Enterprise) solutions.

“It was great to experience an external auditor looking at our work and having no further remarks other than to say, please keep doing what you do, we have no findings! That simply makes me feel proud and shows me our teams are really helping move the business needle at our customers. We deserved this designation simply by serving our customers in the best possible way”, says Marcel de Vries, founder and CEO of Xpirit.

“Although not surprising, I’m very happy to see that Xpirit has achieved the GitHub on Azure Advanced Specialization. Xpirit has been both a guiding light and a solid foundation in the DevOps community for well over a decade. With this new achievement, I look forward to partnering with you for many years to come, and, more importantly, hearing about the successes of you guiding and transforming our shared customers.” said Dave McKinstry, Manager DevOps FastTrack Program at GitHub.

"From the get-go, our partnership with Microsoft has been very important to us. For our hard work to be rewarded with this qualification makes us incredibly proud of Xpirit. By now, it's safe to say that cloud is the standard. And the fact that our specialists excel in Azure means that we can give companies worldwide the confidence that their infrastructure, or rather their future, is in the very best hands with us. We are incredibly honored to be a Microsoft Solution Partner and look forward to more collaborations with those who want to start or deepen their Azure journey with us." Anand Sahay, Global CEO, Xebia.
