3 points to consider when choosing an Office 365 and Azure cloud partner
 The easiest part when making the jump to the cloud is to decide on the Microsoft cloud.

In effect, Office 365 and Azure  accumulate so much value and advantages that Microsoft makes it really easy for us. However, because these platforms are constantly evolving, choosing the best partner to help you make the leap to the cloud successfully from all Microsoft partners is a capital task.

To help you in the selection process, we are going to list 3 essential points that you should take into account when choosing your Microsoft Cloud Specialist Partner:


1- Capacity

A migration to Office 365 requires a good evaluation plan that if not have it, can cause delays and failures that negatively impact the activity of your company. Tasks such as user migration, mailboxes, archiving ... require prior evaluation plans and proper project management, so you should be wary of quick solutions and at an unlikely cost 

 The key is that the Partner understands the needs of your company to offer you the correct solution . 


2- Experience

All Microsoft partners have the same goal, to ensure your company a step to the right cloud, but what makes them different is to have faced virtually any situation (from migrations from Google, Lotus notes or Linux mail servers through all types of scenarios and problems), thus providing much more value to the client.

On the other hand, it is very important that the partner has the Gold Cloud Productivity certification , as it is the maximum recognition granted by Microsoft, certifying not only the capacity but also the experience in Office 365 deployments for medium and large companies.

Any company can talk about its virtues and its knowledge without any control so it is important that you can contrast the experience of the partner to make a good choice. Verifying the success stories, references and opinions of clients is the key to deciding who to trust the service.


3-Accompaniment

Another aspect that differentiates a good partner is the treatment and support  offered to its customers both in the implementation process and in the adoption phase. 

It is therefore very important that once the implementation is made, the Partner will accompany you maintaining a consistent communication, providing training and support at the time you need it.
