Futurice Has Earned the Modernization of Web Applications to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization

Futurice today announced it has earned the Modernization of Web Applications to Microsoft Azure advanced specialization, a validation of a solution partner’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and proven expertise in migrating and modernizing production web application workloads, and managing app services in Azure.

Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their web workload deployment and management practices, including their ability to implement Azure App Service, are able to earn the Modernization of Web Applications to Microsoft Azure advanced specialization.

Together with our clients, we create complex solutions and services,” says Michael Samarin, Vice President and Global Head of Software Development at Futurice. “Microsoft Azure plays a crucial role in many of our clients’ digitalization and modernization strategies. As a company, we are known for our expertise in this domain. Advanced Azure Specialization provides an extra assurance layer to our commitment to continuous investment in deep technical know-how.”
