Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting Becomes a Microsoft Silver Partner

I’m pleased to be able to announce that Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting has become a Microsoft Silver Partner for Data Platform (also known as Microsoft SQL Server). This is an important milestone for DC&AC because it shows that Microsoft puts trust in us as a company, and that Microsoft has vetted us through our projects which we have completed for our clients.

This also means that we can do something that we haven’t been able to do before for our clients, get them setup directly with Microsoft licensing and Microsoft Azure products without having to wait for a third party to get involved. When our clients need Microsoft Azure services we’ll be able to handle that as a part of the project and keep the project moving along without our client needing to get setup in the Windows Azure systems or contact their normal software vendor for quoting prices. And the same will apply to the “box products” as well such as Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, etc. We’ll be able to get quotes for those products to the client directly without having to wait for the sales team at some other company to get things done.

You’ll see that Microsoft Partner logo that we’ve earned displayed proudly on our website, and we hope that you’ll let us help you with your data platform needs.
