Microsoft has chosen UK-based IT management and cloud automation specialist PowerON to become one of 70 partners in its Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) Elite Partner Team.
PowerON will have access to Microsoft’s technical content and early product announcements, and will participate in private previews, early product testing and an Intune UserVoice group. It will also join Microsoft-hosted events and regular conference calls, which will cover product releases, engineering updates and more.
“Being invited to join Microsoft’s prestigious EMS Elite Partner Team is a major feat and reinforces our credentials as one of the world’s leading players in the IT automation field,” said Stewart McLaughlan, PowerON’s EMS Mobility consultant. “It gives us direct access to Microsoft’s product development team and its decision makers, so we can share feedback from our customers and other end users, as well as supporting them as they plug potential gaps and develop new products. This means we’ll be completely up to date with Microsoft’s latest software developments, as well as helping to shape its future, which will further enhance the levels of service, knowledge, expertise and opportunities that we can offer our customers.”
Microsoft EMS is an integrated set of tools that enable all businesses to administer, manage and secure devices including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, in a single system. According to Microsoft, PowerON was invited onto the programme in recognition of its commitment to innovate with the EMS stack and actively provide considered feedback on ways to improve the technology based on practical engagements with customers.
“We are pleased to welcome PowerON into the EMS Elite Partner Program and look forward to collaborating to drive EMS deployment and usage to ensure our customers get the most value out of our products and services,” said Suzanne Grant, senior programme manager at Microsoft.
