Empired has been named as a leader in the categories of Microsoft Azure Managed Services and Microsoft Dynamics 365 in the 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Microsoft Ecosystem report for Australia. Empired was the only Australian-owned company named in the leaders quadrant for Dynamics 365, and one of just a few Australian companies named as a leader in Azure Managed Services.
Stuart Strickland, group general manager – customer enablement, Empired, said, “Customers can be assured that Empired will help them maximise their investment in technology by applying a set of scalable methodologies that accelerate time to value. Empired helps customers complete projects faster and more successfully with lower costs and less risk. This recognition cements Empired’s place as a leader and recognises the investment the business has made into Microsoft Azure and Dynamics 365.”
Empired was chosen as a leader in Azure Managed Services due to its strong heritage, prestigious Microsoft Azure Expert MSP certification as one of only 77 partners worldwide to achieve this, and ability to deliver high-quality, managed, end-to-end Azure cloud services. Empired can take customers from initial planning and design through to implementation, operation, and optimisation.
Stuart Strickland said, “One of the biggest challenges our customers find is that they’re not achieving the cost savings they expected when they migrated to Azure. Empired solves that problem by optimising and consolidating workloads. Empired can dramatically cut costs for customers in the Azure space, making sure they get the benefits they signed up for.”
Empired was chosen as a leader in Dynamics 365 due to the exceptional quality of its Dynamics 365 team. One of the largest and most experienced Dynamics 365 teams in Australia and New Zealand, the Empired team includes a number of Microsoft MVPs who have achieved this status through extensive certifications. Empired is also a member of the Dynamics Inner Circle with executive-level access to the Microsoft team.
Stuart Strickland said, “Empired can substantially de-risk customers’ Dynamics 365 projects, helping customers get the best from their digital transformation efforts. As a result of its strong relationship with Microsoft, Empired can also gain early access to Microsoft product roadmaps and changes, which ensures customers are always on the right path to success.”
According to the 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Microsoft Ecosystem report for Australia, “Empired has been a longstanding and valued partner of Microsoft for its managed service for Azure [and] Empired was the first Microsoft Azure Expert MSP partner to fully adopt Microsoft Azure Lighthouse…Empired is in the top one per cent of Microsoft Dynamics 365 partners worldwide, having been appointed to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Inner Circle.”
Empired is continuing to invest heavily in expanding and upgrading the team’s skillsets even further and is building its capability to deliver projects anywhere in the world.
Stuart Strickland said, “Empired is constantly working behind the scenes to achieve certifications and recognition such as this. This means our customers can have peace of mind that their projects are being managed by a genuine leader and a team of passionate experts that are invested in the project’s success. Empired works with customers to futureproof their projects and align them for ongoing value. The team is proud to receive this recognition in the 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Microsoft Ecosystem report for Australia as a testament to the effort and commitment that goes into every project.”
