NTT Com receives Microsoft's seal of approval

NTT Communications Corporation announced that it has been granted Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform status, the highest accreditation currently available, for its competency in delivering on quality, expertise and differentiated managed services in the cloud.

NTT Com Managed Services CEO Damian Skendrovic says, “Gold status is an important recognition of our competency in the cloud arena.

“With Microsoft Cloud Platform Competency we are helping enterprises to manage their hybrid cloud infrastructures, delivering on SaaS and PaaS solutions available in the Azure and Azure Stack marketplace that will enable our customers to optimize on performance and reach their business goals.”

  • NTT Communications
  • NTT Com Managed Services SAU
  • NTT America
  • NTT Europe
  • NTT Com Asia (Hong Kong)
