Advanced Specialization

Azure Virtual Desktop

Advanced Specialization is an extensive validation of a Microsoft partner’s capability to deliver high-fidelity services in a specific solution area.

Our Advanced Specialization in Azure Virtual Desktop validates us as experts in deploying, optimising and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure.


Azure Virtual Desktop Advanced Specialization

Azure Virtual Desktop Advanced Specialization is limited to Microsoft Partners who demonstrate deep knowledge, extensive experience, and proven success in deploying, optimising, and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure with AVD.

It is different from competency. A competency measures a partner’s broad technical capability in a Microsoft product or technology. By contrast, the Advanced Specialization measures more in-depth capabilities in a specific solution area. Advanced specializations require that a Partner must;

  • First, have active Gold competency status in the competency aligned to the Advanced Specialization
  • Secondly, it requires that this competency is verified and regularly audited by an independent third party


Part of the auditing process includes showing evidence of best practice processes and documentation in the course of past and current VDI design and implementation projects as well as in ongoing operational support. It also means our engineers have individually been assessed and certified in specific solution areas.

This is why we are proud to have been certified with AVD Advanced Specialization.

An Azure Expert for your transition

By working with partners who have been through the audit process and gained this accreditation and certification, clients ensure a smooth cloud transition.

This can be a partner who applies a framework for successful migration to a cloud environment, for governance, architecture decisions, networking, security, etc. Or it can be a partner that has experience in successfully migration production workloads to Azure.

In Atech, you will find a partner that fits both capability frameworks – in other words – wherever you are in your cloud transformation journey, we are eminently suited to deliver on this exciting transition for your organisation, from initial consultation and assessment, through to a pilot roll out and full implementation, to ongoing management.
