IAM Cloud, a UK-based company offering cloud-based IT management services, has been awarded the 2015 Public Sector: Education Microsoft Partner of the Year.
14% of the education sector in the UK currently use the company’s IAM Cloud IT Management system, as well as hundreds of institutions from around the world.
IAM Cloud provides affordable cloud technology to large organisations such as universities and colleges, and organisations with budget limitations such as schools. The company provides students, teachers and academics with quick, secure access to a variety of software, storage and IT services.
Services such as those delivered by IAM Cloud are seeing increasing traction in the education sector, as institutions look to enhance the student experience while simultaneously reducing costs.
The company reports that some organisations that have moved to IAM Cloud have saved up to 90% on data storage costs. This money can then be redistributed into other important activities and support services.
“We are enormously proud to receive this award from Microsoft, especially given the area of work it recognises,” said Adam Cosby, CEO and co-founder of IAM Cloud. “The IAM Cloud team is devoted to delivering the best service possible to education. Much of the innovation in our software service has happened in collaboration with our education customers. We take pride in working closely with our customers to build IT solutions that provide maximum benefit to the organisation and students.”
IAM Cloud was selected from a field of more than 2,000 businesses in 108 countries globally for the award.
“This year’s award winners are among the most innovative and valuable our partner ecosystem has to offer,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft. “Therefore, it came as no surprise that IAM Cloud was named among that group as this year’s winner of the 2015 Microsoft Public Sector Education Partner of the Year award. We applaud IAM Cloud on this achievement and for the outstanding value it continues to provide for our mutual customers.”
