BRUNNER's BHiveLab Awarded Gold Certification by Microsoft for 17th Year in a Row
BRUNNER's BHiveLab recognized by Microsoft with highest competency level for Cloud & System Center Excellence

Pittsburgh (February 8, 2018) – Hosting 2017’s #1 Super Bowl ad? No sweat for BHiveLab, one of the leading emerging technology innovation labs in the region. A driving force in multiple facets of technology, BHiveLab recently attained the Microsoft Gold Certification and Microsoft Gold Competency for Datacenter after another stellar year of helping customers with their digital transformation efforts.

For more than 20 years, BHiveLab has offered enterprise web, mobile and big data technology solutions for a number of diverse clients. This year marks BHiveLab’s 17th year in a row as a Microsoft Gold Certified Independent Software Provider (ISV) – a designation that acknowledges the highest competency in software design and development. It also further demonstrates the organization’s proven expertise in delivering quality Microsoft Cloud and Managed Services solutions for Microsoft platform driven companies. With over 80% of businesses deploying or embracing the cloud, the Gold Certification makes BHiveLab a trusted and distinguished partner.

Additionally, with datacenter partners in Pittsburgh, PA; Manchester, UK; Boston, MA; Memphis, TN, BHiveLab opted to submit for the Datacenter competency certification for the first time which recognizes partners who are transforming data centers into more flexible, scalable, and cost effective solutions. Receiving this competency showcases the BHiveLab’s ability to deliver unified solutions across on-premises, service provider, and Microsoft Cloud and Azure environments.

John Roden, BRUNNER’s CIO, said, "It’s rare for a company to be able to operate at this level on both the software solutions and the datacenter aspects of the business. This approach is what allows us to provide diverse services at the speed and value that many companies are looking for today as they embark on their digital transformation journey.”

To receive these certifications and competencies, companies must complete an application which includes detailed information on current projects as well as five references from clients. As a Microsoft Gold Certified team with Datacenter Competency, BHiveLab receives access to multiple software licenses which in turn lead to obtaining the most up-to-date, high-quality technologies, equipment and partnerships – beneficial not only to BHiveLab, but to the clients they service.
