Data#3 gains Tier 1 Microsoft CSP status

Data#3 plans to grow its Microsoft Cloud revenue to more than $100 million this financial year

Data#3 has joined a small group of partners to become a Tier 1 Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP).

Becoming a CSP gives Data#3 direct access to Microsoft and their customers. In addition Data#3 will also supply consulting, migration, deployment, adoption and managed services.

Data#3 is Microsoft’s largest licensing partner in Asia Pacific.

Data#3 executive general manager and member of Microsoft’s worldwide Licensing Partner Engagement board, Brad Colledge, said the CSP program will accelerate the delivery and uptake of Data#3’s Cloud offerings, particularly managed services.

“The CSP program combined with our services, complements our plan to grow our Microsoft Cloud revenue to more than $100 million this financial year,” Colledge said.

Last year, Data#3 sold more than $47 million in Microsoft Cloud licenses.

Data#3 CEO, Laurence Baynham, said the CSP program aligned with its overall strategy to focus on new and emerging service-centric hybrid IT solutions.

“The non-transactional CSP model will help us to reach both our Microsoft, and corporate goals. Microsoft’s leadership and growth in Public Cloud has been impressive and as a key partner, we will continue to benefit from their investments,” Baynham said.

“The value-added services from providers is the differentiation point and is what really delivers maximum value to the customer and the ability to provide these services was a key prerequisite for being appointed as a Tier 1 Microsoft CSP.”
