Global systems management, data protection and security software provider Quest Software has extended its partnership agreement with Microsoft to help customers accelerate their digital transformations.
The alliance will enable Quest, which is a Microsoft Gold Partner and independent software vendor, to better align its product and services with Microsoft’s innovations.
“Quest’s relationship with Microsoft can be traced back over more than three decades,” said Tyler Bryson, corporate vice president of global partner solutions for the US at Microsoft. “This extended partnership agreement sets the foundation for an ongoing relationship aligning both companies around go-to-market motions and dramatically accelerating our customers’ digital transformation.”
As part of the extended partnership, Quest will also collaborate with Microsoft to build a new Slack to Microsoft Teams migration tool on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. As part of this initiative, Quest has become the only independent software vendor to join Microsoft’s “Super 7” partner programme, allowing it to work with Microsoft Consulting Services, Microsoft Modern Workplace sellers and System Integrator partners to help customers transition from Slack to Teams.
“In talking to customers, I’m hearing more and more daily customers are wanting a solution to migrate their Slack content into Teams,” said Michael Tweddle, president and general manager for Microsoft platform management at Quest Software. “We are currently in private beta of our Slack to Teams migration solution and working closely with Microsoft on the go-to-market motions and roadmap enhancements. Our partnership has helped us bring this to market faster with the features and functionality we know customers need.”
