Calgary, Alberta – February 10, 2021 – Long View today announced it has earned the Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop advanced specialization, a validation of a partner’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and expertise in deploying, scaling and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure.
Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their Windows Virtual Desktop technical practices, are able to earn the Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop advanced specialization.
Supporting secure remote work for employees is more critical than ever. Windows Virtual Desktop is a Microsoft solution that seamlessly integrates with other Microsoft products and allows customers to implement virtual desktops in a scalable, secure, and cost-effective way.
Partners with validated capabilities in implementing Windows Virtual Desktop can help customers deploy and navigate the licensing efficiencies it offers to deliver the solution that is most efficient for their organization.
Japman Bajaj, Practice Director, Managed Cloud and Infrastructure Services at Long View commented: “I am so delighted with this achievement for Long View as it represents a milestone in our standing as a Microsoft partner for the multiple ways we enable Windows Virtual Desktop with Microsoft. Being one of the first companies in Canada to receive this advanced specialization not only demonstrates our understanding of Windows Virtual Desktop, but also shows our drive and commitment to the pursuit of business and technology excellence for our clients as organizations continue to digitally adapt to the world around us.” He added “Especially during the pandemic, we have seen WVD serve as a critical tool in our clients’ toolbelt for adapting to this new reality. For those organizations that depend on their employees having dependable and reliable access to their remote desktop, we’ve developed a monthly service whereby we have our eyes on our clients’ WVD installations and environments to make sure organizations can provide the always-on level of service that their employees require during this time.”
Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp. added, “The Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop advanced specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to deploying Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure.
