Softtek Adds Microsoft Solutions to Cloud Center of Excellence



MONTERREY, Mexico–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Softtek, founder of the nearshore industry and leading global IT services provider dedicated to maximizing the business value of applications, announced today that it is adding Microsoft technologies, including Windows Azure and MS Dynamics’ platforms, to the firm’s portfolio of cloud services delivered through its Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE).

“Our growing relationship with Microsoft has resulted in the first sizeable Latin American Cloud Center of Excellence, which, in turn, will address a growing senior talent gap throughout the region”

Softtek’s CCoE aggregates a diverse team of skilled experts who are focused on accelerating the implementation of cloud-based solutions, including migration, consolidation, and modernization services. The team is also dedicated to building and connecting new cloud-optimized applications. The CCoE is expected to scale to hundreds of certified experts by the end of 2013, leveraging the growing collection of cloud expertise across industries that Softtek has accumulated.

Softtek was recently recognized as Microsoft’s Azure Circle Partner of the Year 2012, which makes it a provider of choice for developing, migrating, modernizing or maintaining custom applications on Microsoft’s cloud-based technologies.

“Our growing relationship with Microsoft has resulted in the first sizeable Latin American Cloud Center of Excellence, which, in turn, will address a growing senior talent gap throughout the region,” said Warren Ross, Global Director of Cloud Services, for Softtek. “While we have been active in the cloud space for years, we now see an opportunity to bridge the services gap in cloud strategy execution, where analysts predict growth exceeding 300% over the next three years.”

Said Softtek’s president and CEO, Blanca Treviño, “We wanted to do something different in cloud and we’ve succeeded. Business leaders are asking more questions regarding business alignment and risk management for cloud and Microsoft has responded with a pragmatic and powerful approach. When combined with Softtek’s domain knowledge, global footprint, and process discipline, we are able to successfully address those questions and, thus, maximize the potential of the cloud.”

Softtek’s Cloud Center of Excellence offers four related sets of cloud services: architecture and advisory; cloud application migration and development; managed services to facilitate cloud hosting; and cloud application support.

Softtek’s cloud services platform combines technologies from leading providers and measures the performance of cloud-based applications using business-relevant metrics. The company’s approach blends technology, process and application lifecycle management skills into a seamless service that considers the primary concerns of its clients. These concerns usually revolve around business performance, security, control, service governance and regulatory compliance.
