SQLI and Microsoft strengthen their partnership to develop cloud competencies in France

New training programmes for 2020

At Microsoft Inspire, the conference for Microsoft partners, the two companies set out an ambitious growth plan with a key focus on developing cloud competencies on the French market. A Microsoft Gold Partner, the SQLI Group is expanding the training it offers through the SQLI Institute, with preparatory courses for the new Microsoft Azure certifications.  

To help organisations speed up their digital transformation by getting the most out of cloud technologies, Microsoft announced its training and certification plans, with SQLI as one of its main providers. SQLI’s training and expertise centres offer all Microsoft clients and partners the full range of certification courses (AZ-900, AZ-103, AZ-203, AZ-300 and AZ-400) for acquiring the basic concepts of the cloud and Azure services. With its Microsoft-certified instructors, the Group offers a learning approach that caters to the needs of organisations of all sizes and sectors.

Partnered with Microsoft, SQLI also plays a key role in running the initiative in Paris and the regions in France, with the goal of strengthening the technical skills and capacities of professionals in Azure and Teams technologies.

Carlo Purassanta, Chairman, Microsoft France says: “I am delighted at the growth of our partnership with SQLI, especially around the development of cloud competencies on the French market. From the Aston school, which trains hundreds of future digital talents every year, to the most advanced Azure training courses for IT professionals, SQLI has developed a teaching and learner-support methodology that contributes to making our ecosystem more dynamic and reinforces the key skills needed for our clients’ digital transformation.”

SQLI is pursuing this unique partnership and investment drive to cater for all training needs linked to Microsoft technologies.
