Allendale, MI - November 7, 2019
- BizStream, a West Michigan based software development company and Kentico Gold Partner, is proud to announce that it has achieved Kentico
’s Microsoft Azure Competency. This competency is designed to recognize the Kentico Gold Partners, who have successfully launched Kentico projects in a Microsoft Azure environment and have proven their expertise. Kentico requests partners to demonstrate how utilizing Azure improved performance, reduced deployment time, as well as increased client satisfaction with the project.
To obtain this certification, Kentico partners need to meet the following requirements:
- Kentico Gold Partner in good standing.
- Two Kentico Certified Developers
- Two Kentico projects on Microsoft Azure (on paid and officially supported versions of Kentico).
- One Customer Success Story portraying how the Microsoft Azure platform improved performance, reduced deployment time, as well as increased client satisfaction with the project.
“BizStream began working with Microsoft Azure back in 2013. We almost had to, as our clients expect us to be experts in providing full-service applications that must scale and include performant and secure hosting. It was only natural to add Azure to the list of systems that we are experts in alongside Amazon Web Services (AWS), Rackspace Cloud, and others. In the past 6 years, we have attained a great deal of knowledge and capabilities when it comes to leveraging the Azure platform. It’s not just about hosting the applications any longer. Today we use the extended services that Azure provides in terms of Azure Search, Azure Functions, Azure Storage, Azure Monitoring options, and Azure Caching services like Azure REDIS.
In our opinion, when you combine Azure with Kentico EMS, you gain the best of both worlds in terms of the best .NET CMS on the market with the best globally scalable cloud hosting option. It is a killer combination. I couldn’t be happier to achieve the Kentico Azure Competency. It shows that we best know how to utilize the Kentico platform on top of Azure to provide world-class solutions.
And actually, I am even happier about the future that Kentico and Azure can provide our customers. Right now we are just scratching the surface on adding AI and Machine learning into our Kentico solutions that can enable a new level of personalization and automation for the sites that we build.” - Brian McKeiver, Co-Owner at BizStream and Kentico MVP.
