IAM Cloud named Microsoft worldwide Education Partner of the Year 2015
Microsoft has today named Huddersfield-based technology company IAM Cloud Ltd as its 2015 Public Sector: Education Microsoft Partner of the Year.
Hundreds of institutions around the world and 14% of the UK education sector use the IAM Cloud IT Management system to transform the way they provide IT services. What used to be a major headache for large organisations, like universities and colleges, and challenging for organisations with limited budgets, like schools, is now easy and affordable using the latest cloud technology. Educational institutions use IAM Cloud to provide their students, teachers and academics with quick, seamless and secure access to a wide variety of useful software, storage and IT services.
With tightening budgets, but an expectation for UK institutions to continue delivering world-class education to students, educational institutions are turning to technology for an answer. IT services like IAM Cloud are growing increasingly popular to help schools, colleges and universities to enhance the student learning experience, while at the same time reducing costs. In some cases organisations can save up to 90% on their data storage costs by moving to IAM Cloud – these are important cost savings that can be redistributed to other important educational activities and support services.
The business has experienced a meteoric rise, from humble roots coding the concept system on servers in the CEO’s garage in Sheffield in 2011, to now boasting the largest Microsoft Azure implementation in Europe. IAM Cloud Ltd is a standout example of how tech startups can use the power of cloud computing to deliver their software services to a global audience.
IAM Cloud was honoured among a global field of top Microsoft providers from more than 2,000 businesses from 108 countries worldwide. The winners all demonstrate excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
“We are enormously proud to receive this award from Microsoft, especially given the area of work it recognises” – says Adam Cosby, the CEO and Co-Founder of IAM Cloud.
“The IAM Cloud team is devoted to delivering the best service possible to education. Much of the innovation in our software service has happened in collaboration with our education customers. We take pride in working closely with our customers to build IT solutions that provide maximum benefit to the organisation and students.” He added.
“We firmly believe that co-creation is the best way to run an innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business. Our customers certainly think so, and now it’s fantastic to receive external validation from Microsoft too.”
The Public Sector, Education Partner of the Year Award recognizes a partner organization that excels at providing innovative and unique services or solutions based on Microsoft technologies to education customers.
“This year’s award winners are among the most innovative and valuable our partner ecosystem has to offer. Therefore, it came as no surprise that IAM Cloud was named among that group as this year’s Winner of the 2015 Microsoft Public Sector Education Partner of the Year award,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp.
“We applaud IAM Cloud on this achievement and for the outstanding value it continues to provide for our mutual customers.”
The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognises Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year.
