Demanding and prestigious, the specialization confirms our proficiency – both from a technical and process standpoint – when it comes to cloud migration and optimization. We're committed to enabling modern, high-value cloud technology solutions for our clients and this is another way we're demonstrating that," said WatServ's CEO, Dave Lacey, in a statement.

"The Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure advanced specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to migrating Windows-based workloads over to Azure. WatServ clearly demonstrated that they have both the skills and the experience to offer clients a path to successful migration so that they can start enjoying the benefits of being in the cloud," stated Rodney Clark, Corporate Vice President, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief at Microsoft.
