InSpark achieves exclusive expert status Microsoft Azure

InSpark is the first Microsoft partner in the Netherlands to have achieved an exclusive Managed Service Provider status for Azure, security, data & AI services


KPN subsidiary InSpark was recently awarded the status of Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP). This makes InSpark the only Microsoft partner in the Netherlands with this exclusive MSP status that delivers the entire Microsoft cloud portfolio. This recognition means that InSpark is now even better equipped to facilitate KPN and InSpark customers in their digital transformation to the cloud.

This award of MSP status provides InSpark, which thanks to support from KPN will grow in the year ahead in terms of capacity and volume, with even greater driving force. For example, InSpark and its customers will henceforth be able to directly access exclusive, additional automation options in the migrating and updating of Azure environments. This will enable customers to safely and reliably develop and utilize innovative applications more quickly and at much lower cost.

Ongoing effective digital transformation

Organizations must be able to change in double-quick time; for that, they need the right technology. Intelligent, innovative and scalable technology gives companies the room to carry out digital transformation continually and swiftly. A fast-growing number of organizations are right now taking steps towards the modern workspace and the (Microsoft) cloud. KPN and InSpark – together the largest and most versatile supplier of Microsoft services in the Netherlands – enable customers to make this ongoing digital transformation as simple, effective and smart as possible. InSpark develops project accelerators and managed services for the Microsoft cloud, so that customers are able to collaborate safely and flexibly with low-threshold data use, and other innovative applications become even more accessible for every organization.

Erik Jan van Vuuren, InSpark CEO:

“This status is not just icing on the cake and proof that we belong to the top echelon of Microsoft Azure partners throughout the world. It also provides a boost to the development of new and improved services. InSpark is now directly involved in Microsoft’s continued development of Azure. This means that we can offer an even better service to our customers in the efficient use of cloud services, and provide them with the best support in dealing with all the continuous changes going forward.”
