SAN DIEGO, California — January 2rd, 2013 3:45am — Today, Agile IT released its 2012 year-end results, showing that business is booming for this San Diego cloud computing company focused on fixed price Cloud and Office 365 Migration Solutions.
“This year has been great for Agile IT,” said Principal Consultant and founder, John Gilham. “We have been recognized with several prestigious awards, seen sales rise as businesses continue to leverage the benefits of the cloud.”
One of San Diego’s leading technology companies and already ranking in the top 0.5% of Microsoft Cloud solution providers worldwide, Agile IT was recognized with three prestigious awards in 2012. Alongside making the CRN Next-Gen 250 List of solution providers that are on the cutting edge of technology, Agile IT was ranked alongside industry leaders Amazon and Rackspace by Talkin’ Cloud as one of the Top 100 Cloud Computing Service Providers in the world.
At the 2012 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto in July, Agile IT was recognized by Microsoft as 2012 Southwest Area Cloud Partner of the Year, recognizing the excellence and achievement of Agile IT. According to Microsoft’s West Region General Manager, Neal Potter, “Agile IT demonstrates a commitment to serving its customers, and providing innovative thinking and technology solutions to meet business needs.”
As well as Patner of the Year, Microsoft has awarded Agile IT’s Enterprise Consulting Solutions Group six gold competencies, with less a dozen worldwide Microsoft partners achieving such level of accreditation.
That commitment paid off with sales of Agile IT’s services and solutions increasing from $600,000 in 2011 to $800,000 in 2012, with an additional $750,000 generated in licensing revenue. Part of that increase was due to the 25,000 users that Agile IT moved from traditional, desk-based computing to the Cloud, specifically in fixed price AgileAscend Office 365 Migration services. “Agile IT has firmly set our mark as best-in-class for enterprise and SMB cloud computing solutions leveraging mature Microsoft collaboration technologies”, Gilham added.
Agile IT’s success is also good news for the local economy, with 350% growth in the number of jobs in the San Diego area over the past four years, forcing Agile to double the size of its San Diego headquarters. “We now employ twelve San Diego residents, along with staff at other locations,” Gilham said, “and we’re looking forward to continuing to create local jobs as more businesses switch to using the Cloud to improve how they work with their customers and partners.”
