Nexus Attains Microsoft Modern Workplace Competency for SMB and Enterprise 

In the ever-evolving world of technology, the Microsoft Partner Program has been a beacon of innovation and excellence since its inception in 2000. Over the years, it has adapted to the changing landscape of technology and business operations, expanding its reach and capabilities across the globe. Fast forward to March 2022, and Microsoft announced a significant evolution of its partner program, aligning it with the dynamics of the modern workplace and the needs of businesses today.  

Before now, Nexus proudly held the status of Microsoft Gold Partner, boasting an impressive six gold competencies and five silver ones—a remarkable achievement by any measure. As a result of Microsoft’s program evolution and in recognition of our expertise and experience in delivering Microsoft solutions, we are delighted to announce our new status as a Microsoft Partner, achieving two Solutions Partner designations: Modern Workplace SMB and Modern Workplace Enterprise.  

This recognition is a testament to our dedicated operations team, who stay up-to-date with Microsoft exams, deploy a substantial volume of customer cloud solutions, and maintain our status as a Microsoft partner.  

“Securing these two designations is a significant milestone for Nexus. It reflects our commitment to delivering cutting-edge Microsoft cloud solutions and fostering modern workplaces across the UK for both SME and Enterprise clients. I’m really proud of the team for putting into much effort to get us to this position so quickly and it won’t stop there, we have our eyes on many more of the designations across 2024.”   

What Does This Mean for Our Valued Customers?  

The changes in Microsoft’s partner program bring tangible benefits to our customers. They can now select a Microsoft partner based on the specific solutions and services they require. With Nexus’s specialisations in the Modern Workplace, our customers can rest assured that we not only meet but exceed Microsoft’s stringent criteria. Our in-depth capabilities in Modern Workplace solutions, including Teams, SharePoint, Viva, endpoint management and more, make us a trusted partner in the realm of Microsoft 365 technologies.  

These changes enable customers to easily identify partners with the necessary cloud technical expertise and experience. Microsoft has introduced six new solution partner designations, with a focus on the latest cloud technologies:  

  1. Data & AI (Artificial Intelligence) (Azure)  
  1. Infrastructure (Azure)  
  1. Digital & App Innovation (Azure)  
  1. Business Applications  
  1. Modern Work  
  1. Security  

We will be working hard over the coming months to secure further Microsoft competencies, as our staff undertake further exams, and we continue to deploy successful cloud solutions to our clients across the UK.
