Codurance Adds 2 more Microsoft Gold Competencies to accelerate customer success

Codurance demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.

Codurance, Craft at Heart, today announced it has attained a Gold Application Integration and a Gold Cloud Platform competency (to add to its existing Gold Application Development and Silver Data Analytics Competencies). These new competencies demonstrate a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world. A great milestone as we continue to distinguish our capabilities within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem. 

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove our level of technology expertise. Further designations within one Microsoft competency are completed by our certified professionals, ensuring Codurance has a certain level of staffing capacity. These exams are supplemented by additional measures such as customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meeting a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment, and passing technology and/or sales assessments.


Codurance helps businesses deliver adaptable software solutions that lay the foundations for a sustainable future. We drive innovation through agile software delivery, hands-on technical expertise, and expert advice. Our teams provide the necessary practices, technologies, and skills at each step of the project to ensure the highest quality is delivered. From inception to delivery we guide our customers, enabling their product vision to become a reality. Achieving Microsoft Gold competencies signifies our world-leading expertise in the latest Microsoft technologies and provides our customers with access to unparalleled levels of technical advice, skills and support as they journey to the Azure cloud and beyond.

“Achieving these additional Microsoft Gold competencies showcases our expertise and commitment in today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products,” said Steve Lydford, Head of Professional Services at Codurance. “Our plan is to accelerate our customers’ success by serving as technology advisors and delivery experts for their Azure business demands.”


“By achieving a Gold competency, Codurance has demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp. “They have a deep expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions.”

The Microsoft Gold Partner Application Integration competency recognises those who integrate unique applications and solutions across the Microsoft ecosystem and demonstrate expertise in a hybrid integration platform. Application Integration allows organisations to connect applications across the enterprise, accelerating business results, time to market and to increase productivity and efficiency. Whether your applications run in the cloud or on-premises, you have the flexibility to seamlessly connect applications, data, and process anywhere. 

In addition, The Gold Cloud Platform competency is designed for partners to capitalize on the growing demand for infrastructure and software as a service (SaaS) solutions built on Microsoft Azure. It delivers additional benefits including Signature Cloud Support, Azure deployment planning services, Azure sponsored credit, direct partner support, eligibility to deploy certain on-premises, internal use software on Microsoft Azure, and access to the cloud platform roadmap.

The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
