Cloud Consulting Firm Achieves 74% Growth, as Enterprise Customers Expand Investments in Microsoft Cloud Services

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2016) - SADA Systems, global leaders in providing cloud transformation consulting and strategic IT solutions, announces significant growth in its Microsoft practice group for fiscal year 2016, ended June 30. Revenues increased 74% year-over-year, while the number of Microsoft cloud product users across SADA's customer base grew to 7.7 million. The results were driven by increased confidence in public cloud among enterprise customers looking for innovative ways to grow revenues and improve productivity. SADA will showcase its Microsoft customer success and public cloud expertise at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference this week in Toronto, Canada.

Gartner recently proclaimed 2020 as the year public cloud would become the "default option" for companies. Over the past year, SADA customers have significantly expanded their use of Microsoft public cloud services including Office 365, Azure, Skype for Business and Dynamics CRM. In response, SADA recently made a multi-million dollar commitment to grow the size and scope of its Microsoft practice group. The firm is planning to grow headcount by 50% in the group over the next year, and will be launching a series of new services aligned with Microsoft's enterprise focus. As a premier Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP), SADA provides licensing options for Microsoft solutions plus value-added services, including deployment, migration, software customizations or custom apps, support, ongoing maintenance, and training. SADA was selected by Microsoft to join its IoT Red Carpet Program and was named a finalist in the 2016 Microsoft Partner of the Year - Cloud Productivity Award category.

SADA has been a Microsoft National Solutions Provider since 2013 and holds Gold competencies in Cloud Platform, Cloud Productivity and multiple other categories, recently adding four Gold and two Silver competencies, including Cloud Customer Relationship Management and Communications.

"What we were really striving for was that the migration would be a non-event, and that's exactly what happened," says Scott Huckleberry, CIO at St. John Knits. "SADA helped us comprehensively assess our situation prior to the migration and gave us sound guidance throughout the implementation."

"SADA guided key members of our organization through the process of identifying business challenges, collaborating on ways to use technology to advance, and distinguishing what success looks like in our organization," says Megan Harter, PMO Manager, Young's Market Company. "We walked away with a solid plan of how we could use technology to solve some of our pressing problems, a clear path on how to get there, and a vision of improved collaboration and productivity. Overall, we are proud of our decision to partner with them."
