SkyTerra Technologies in Portsmouth, an IT consulting company offering various cloud services, received the 2017 U.S. SMB Rising Star East Region Partner of the Year award from Microsoft’s U.S. Small and Mid-sized Business (SMB) Group due to its growth in sales and service with Microsoft's suite of O365 and Azure solutions. The company received the same award in 2016.

SkyTerra's expansion has resulted from its participation in Microsoft’s partnership program, as well as its partnerships with solution providers Veeam and Workspot. With an increased market demand for Microsoft’s Security, Mobility and Analytics, Veeam’s backup and disaster recovery solutions, and more cost-effective approaches to computer hardware using Workspot, SkyTerra is growing by enabling businesses of all sizes to use cloud technologies with more security and scalability.

In a prepared statement, Veeam said SkyTerra has “simplified a company’s cloud adoption process by limiting options to only those they know from experience are scalable and will contribute to a company’s business goals. We’ve seen customers become far more confident in the security and ability of the cloud because of their partnership with SkyTerra, which explains why they’ve doubled in size each year for the past three years.”

“We don’t push product or a one-size-fits-all model, even if it means we make less margin – and we’re completely transparent about that," says Dan Bergeron, a partner at SkyTerra. "We look at each engagement with a long-term view as if we’re the customer on the other side of the table. Our cloud partners have enabled us to offer more agility and support to customers yet maintain our independent integrity. It feels good advising a business on the options that are truly in their best interest.”
