Agile IT Becomes Office 365 Migration Leader

Microsoft Names San Diego IT Consulting Firm Cloud Accelerate Partner

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Agile IT has been certified to deliver Office 365 Migration expertise and services to organizations in San Diego and beyond. Microsoft has qualified the San Diego IT Consulting firm with the exclusive "Cloud Accelerate Partner" just in time for the international release of Office 365 on June 28, 2011.

"We couldn't be more happy about this," says Agile IT founder and CEO John Gilham. "Our Office 365 migration package, AgileAscend, will make it easy for us to move customers to the cloud overnight. And being a Cloud Accelerate Partner will definitely set us apart from the crowd that's sure to gather as soon as Office 365 is released."

Gilham, a former Microsoft Solutions consultant, has been running Agile IT for nearly 10 years. "When we started, we were a staff of one -- me. But in the past few years, things have really picked-up, and we have some major new customers, such as the Clinton Library and UCSD Medical Center," says Gilham.

"In addition to being Microsoft's go-to company for Office 365 migrations, we are also pleased to launch AgileConnect, a fixed price Active Directory Cloud Federation Services provider as well," adds Gilham. "I think it's expertise in Microsoft solutions -- and currently on Office 365 -- that sets us apart and has us positioned to not only lead San Diego businesses in moving to the cloud, but businesses all across the states. AgileConnect's unique value is that it federates your on-premise security system with any cloud application that supports SAML, the web's trusted identity protocol. This allows companies to leverage their Microsoft Active Directory for Single Sign-On for many web applications, including SalesForce and Google Apps, on top of seamless Office 365 federation."

In addition to its Office 365 migration service, Agile IT is now offering AgileOffice, a new service that delivers fixed price IT support to small and medium organizations anywhere in the US and Canada, incorporating both Office 365 and Windows InTune, Microsoft's new PC maintenance subscription package.

"Businesses everywhere will soon be moving most everything to the cloud," says Gilham. With our migration service [AgileAscend], cloud federation [AgileConnect], and remote support [AgileOffice] packages, we're going to make it easier than they thought possible."
