The best of the best: Your Microsoft Solutions Partner Specialists

At Interactive, our team has invested a great amount of effort into preparing for the launch of Microsoft’s new Cloud Partner Program.

With 34 of our people obtaining a total of 43 certifications, we are extremely proud to announce that Interactive has achieved the top Microsoft Partner designation – Solutions Partner Specialist, with the following Solution designations:

• Infrastructure
• Data & AI
• Digital & App Innovation
• Security
• Modern Work

Solutions Partner Specialist is the highest benchmark any Microsoft Partner can attain. Achieving specialist designations across cloud, security and application innovation shows the breadth of expertise at Interactive, demonstrating a high level of experience and skill in specific Microsoft solution areas.


I’m extremely proud of the whole organisation for helping us reach this milestone. Achieving the specialised status wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment of our people who worked extremely hard to achieve 43 certifications. It recognises our continuous commitment to training and reflects the standard of excellence our technical experts and project teams deliver for our customers every day - Nick Scholefield, Chief Operating Officer, Interactive

Winner of the ‘Trusted Systems’ category at the CRN Impact Awards, our people have demonstrated their impressive technical capabilities and experience with Microsoft cloud technologies by supporting numerous customers like ATG with digital transformation and cloud migrations.

About Microsoft Designations

From 3 October 2022, Microsoft changed its partnership model from ‘Gold’ and ‘Silver’ partners to a ‘designations’ model. A Solutions Partner designation differentiates partners with broad technical capabilities, a dedication to skilling and training, and a proven ability to successfully deliver solutions for customers in specific Microsoft Cloud solution areas.

By attaining Solutions Partner designations, organisations can validate their breadth of skills and knowledge in solution areas aligned with how Microsoft goes to market. Solution areas are where Microsoft have identified high customer demand and opportunity for partners to scale to meet customer needs.
