APSU are the first IBM Business Partner in Europe and only the third globally to achieve both IBM cloud builder and cloud infrastructure provider accreditations.
This achievement underlines APSU’s strategy of ensuring they remain at the forefront of MSPs who are transitioning their traditional infrastructure customers towards cloud services.
The IBM accreditations, achieved after an intensive period of study and evaluation by IBM and coupled with customer references for solutions already deployed, are a significant addition to APSU’s already lengthy list of IBM qualifications.
Steve Ellis, MD of APSU, said:
“To be the first IBM Business Partner in Europe to achieve these two IBM cloud certifications is a landmark for APSU as a business. Already the highest accredited IBM Power partner in Europe we can now demonstrate a real depth of technical expertise in relation to our cloud services specifically for Power i, which stands us head and shoulders above our competitors. In moving to the cloud, businesses are taking a leap of faith in their MSP to provide their business critical IT, and these qualifications achieved against the normal strict IBM criteria give our customers the guarantee that they are moving the management of their IT to a partner that can be trusted.”
