Key Points to consider for choosing a CSP

When looking for the right CSP, you should analyze its business and health processes, such as:

  • Financial health, making sure they’re a steady, reliable company that will be able to complete your operations in the long run. 
  • Your CSP should have a strong infrastructure, organization, governance, and risk management plans.
  • Just like any other type of relationship, one of the main principles your CSP should have been trust. We recommend you read reviews, study cases of their former projects, or any other type of feedback you can find. 
  • Tech Gurus, your CSP should have proficient tech knowledge. Microsoft recognizes partners that accomplish specific knowledge requirements, awarding them Silver and Gold Partnerships.
  • Your selected CSP should be able to provide you with a basic level of service and assistance for your organization. 
  • Monitoring of the services provided, and constant optimization of such.
  • A safe, clear billing account.
  • Easy deployment, management and optimization of your software and apps. 
  • Experts in hybrid modalities, for looking into the future of cloud computing.
