Slalom Consultant Joel Forman specializes in cloud computing and the Windows Azure Platform.

Slalom Consulting recently announced via this press release that it has been selected by Microsoft to join the Windows Azure Circle Program.  As Microsoft’s 2011 Online Services Partner of the Year, we continue to invest in our practice areas to deliver Microsoft Cloud Services to our clients.

What is the Windows Azure Circle Program?

Microsoft has created the Windows Azure Circle program to create a healthy partner ecosystem around Windows Azure and to ensure the success of System Integrator (SI) partners worldwide.  This program creates a partnership between Microsoft and the SI that will together bring great value in the delivery of Azure services to customers.  Entry into the program requires commitments from the partner to build a strong Windows Azure practice.  These commitments range from training architects, developers, and sellers on the Windows Azure Platform, to goals around practice and customer development.  In return, partners receive several benefits from Microsoft such as internal briefings, development and test platform resources, and the ability to deliver incentive programs sponsored by Microsoft.

Why is it important?

Slalom’s participation in the Windows Azure Circle Program is important for many reasons.  First, it shows our commitment to investing in our ability to deliver Windows Azure services.  In addition, it shows Microsoft’s trust in us as a System Integrator to deliver Windows Azure services.  And lastly, it enables us to bring the most value to our clients though this partnership with Microsoft.

How can I learn more?

Slalom has several offerings around Windows Azure to get started, ranging from 1-3 day sessions, to Windows Azure readiness engagements.  Once you realize your opportunities to innovate with Windows Azure, our talented consultants can help deliver that “game-changing” project.  If your company is interested in learning more about opportunities with Windows Azure and the benefits of working with a Windows Azure Circle Program member, reach out to us today at windowsazure@slalom.com.
