The 2014 Partner of the Year Capitalizes on the Growing Demand for Cloud Solutions


January 20, 2015, St. Louis, MO: Oakwood Systems Group, a business and technology consulting firm, has earned a new competency from Microsoft, at the silver level, for the new Cloud Platform. Oakwood is 1 of just 200 partners worldwide to earn this competency as soon as it became a major market opportunity.

The new competency comes at an important time for the firm. Demand for cloud services is booming and according to Microsoft, more than 57 percent of Fortune 500 are using Microsoft Azure, the company’s cloud platform. Additionally, the growing customer demand for cloud and hybrid services is expected to reach $108 billion by 2017. With the new Cloud Platform competency, Oakwood will be able to capitalize on the growing demand and deliver industry-leading infrastructure and software as a service (SaaS) solutions.

“Cloud technology is certainly the way of the future,” Oakwood’s CEO, Charles Windsor said. “We predicted this and put in place the necessary people and processes to ensure we could successfully deliver innovative cloud-based solutions for our clients. With this new competency, we can build on this momentum and continue to deliver cutting-edge Cloud solutions using Azure and other SaaS solutions.”

Oakwood has also received a nod for being an innovative Internet of Things company. The CIO Review magazine recognized Oakwood by naming it among the Top 50 Internet of Things Companies in its December 2014 issue. The magazine also featured a full-page spread dedicated to Oakwood’s success in the spectrum and highlighted Windsor’s views on this trending technology.
