Microsoft has awarded Innofactor with the Solutions Partner for Microsoft Cloud designation, which requires achieving all six Microsoft Solutions Partner designations. This demonstrates Innofactor's comprehensive technical expertise and capability for delivering modern cloud solutions to customers in all Microsoft solution areas.


Microsoft renewed its partner programs in the fall of 2022 by replacing the previous gold and silver competencies with solution partner designations that are aligned to Microsoft's cloud solution areas. In April, Innofactor was awarded the Solutions Partner for Business Applications designation, which is hard to attain, and has now earned all six Microsoft partner designations. With the achievement, Innofactor will also be rewarded with a special Solutions Partner for Microsoft Cloud designation, demonstrating comprehensive expertise across all Microsoft solution areas:

The Microsoft Solutions Partner designation helps customers identify a partner with comprehensive technical expertise and the ability to deliver modern cloud solutions that meet their needs. When applying for Solutions Partner designation, a partner is evaluated by Microsoft on their performance, technical expertise, and customer success. For example, to have sufficient technical expertise, a partner must have a sufficient number of Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCP).

"I would like to thank Microsoft for its appreciation of Innofactor and for our excellent cooperation over the decades. Being rewarded with the Solutions Partner for Microsoft Cloud designation demonstrates our ability to help our customers succeed across all Microsoft solution areas. I'm proud of our achievements, expertise, professionals, customers, and partners," says Sami Ensio, the founder and CEO of Innofactor.

"Partners who have earned the Solutions Partner for Microsoft Cloud designation are capable of supporting organizations comprehensively across all Microsoft solution areas. It's great to see this group expanding," says Katarina Engblom, Director, Global Partner Solutions at Microsoft.

Innofactor has received several Microsoft recognitions in recent years. Two years ago, Microsoft awarded Innofactor as the ISV (Independent Software Vendor) Partner of the Year 2021 in Finland, and last year as the Tech for Good Partner of the Year 2022 in Finland. Since 2021 Innofactor has also held the Windows and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization status and Modernization of Web Applications to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization status.
