Cloudhouse are proud to announce we've been named a finalist in the 2016 Microsoft Application Development Partner of the Year Award. This year we are among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
Awards were presented across 37 categories, with winners and finalists chosen from a set of more than 2,500 entrants from 119 countries.
Cloudhouse was recognised as an Application Development Partner of the Year for its work helping customers held back by the barriers of moving complex legacy applications to Microsoft Azure and Windows 10.
Our CTO and Founder, Mat Clothier said: “Windows 10 and Microsoft Azure provide huge value to organisations of all sizes. For some organisations existing legacy apps or business critical and complex apps cannot “just” transition from unsupported environments to the Microsoft platforms they want to adopt. Our aligned efforts provide a hassle-free way for business critical app can transition to Azure or Windows 10.”
The Application Developer Partner of the Year Award recognises exceptional innovation from a partner that has delivered commercial or custom-developed solutions during the past year, whether it is a business application, advanced web portals and/or web-based applications or rich client-user interfaces that run on premise or in the cloud.
Despite emergency security patches issued by Microsoft for a number of its legacy operating systems, WannaCry highlighted a major risk faced by companies running business critical applications on unsupported systems. It also showed that, without on-going support, it will become too costly, in both monetary and reputational terms, for organisations to continue running their legacy applications.
