London, UK - Ascent today announces it has earned the DevOps with GitHub on Microsoft Azure specialisation, validating its deep knowledge, extensive experience and proven success in implementing secure software development practices applying DevOps principles and using Azure and GitHub solutions.
The DevOps with GitHub on Microsoft Azure specialisation can only be earned by partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and team skilling, as well as passing a third-party audit of their DevOps technical practices.
As the speed of business accelerates, our customers are looking for better, faster, smarter ways to develop and deploy software and automated processes. Our recognition as a Microsoft partner with the DevOps with GitHub on Microsoft Azure specialisation validates our ability to provide your customers with the skills and processes to practice DevOps and implement the technology across Azure and GitHub to accelerate digital transformation.
Murray Foxcroft, CTO at Ascent, is delighted with the outcome. “Advanced specialisations like this allow us to evidence our capabilities through proven customer implementations, certification and project work. They strengthen our relationship with Microsoft and demonstrate our technical credibility to customers. GitHub is the #1 home for source control and DevOps – and the supporting technical ecosystem for delivering quality projects efficiently, with fully automatable cadence from development to production. Combined with extensive security features protecting and inspecting code, pre-configured environments through Codespaces and the productivity boost of GitHub Copilot X, GitHub is in a class of its own. We are proud of our new specialisation and look forward to helping customers adopt, innovate and succeed - not only with their digital products, but in delivery and operational excellence too.”
