Leading Aotearoa and Australia in Microsoft Advanced Specializations

At Inde, we pride ourselves on being specialists that are willing to learn, and outcome-focused. Our values are at the centre of everything we do; From who we hire, the customers we choose and the solutions we propose to our deliberately developmental culture and the fact that we are employee-owned. It’s amazing what can happen when everyone is striving to achieve great outcomes and drive the business forward – our most recent examples:

Inde are the first business based in Aotearoa or Australia to achieve the coveted Networking Services in Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization


The first in Aotearoa to achieve the Modernization of Web App to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization!

Why does that matter? Well, it means we've been audited and shown that our processes stand up to leading industry standards tests. We’ve provided evidence that we continually follow processes that align with Microsoft's best practices, and it's proven to benefit our customers. Plus, we get a certified letter on Microsoft letterhead that says we know what we're doing!

These specialisations go a long way towards achieving our business vision of being Australasia's leading provider of enterprise technology solutions. We don't endeavour to be the biggest, but we all come to work, put in the mahi, try to be better than yesterday, and make strides towards that goal. 

Vanessa Sorenson, the Managing Director for Microsoft NZ says: “Inde is the perfect example of a business that is not content with achieving excellence, because in this industry the bar is always being raised higher and the world is always evolving. It’s consistently striving to reach even higher levels of excellence tomorrow, and helping bring customers along on that journey, which is the essence of a great Microsoft partner and an outstanding technology company.”

For anyone keeping track, we've now been audited and validated as having the technical capabilities to deliver specialized services in these Microsoft specific solution areas:

  • Migrate Enterprise Apps to Microsoft Azure
  • Infra and Database Migration to Microsoft Azure
  • Networking Services in Microsoft Azure
  • Identity and Access Management
