Aspira, the wholly Irish-owned enterprise IT project specialists, was honoured at Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 Awards, with the company ranking No. 14. It’s the third year running Aspira has been included on the list, which celebrates Ireland’s fastest growing technology companies.

 The award comes on the back of the news that the Cork-based business analysis and managed IT services consultancy firm has been appointed as a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Direct Tier 1 partner. Aspira are one of only ten Tier 1 partners in Ireland, which enables them to manage Microsoft’s entire cloud customer lifecycle.

 To celebrate their wins, Aspira will this week unveil an exclusive offer for new and existing business clients who move to Office 365 – discounting qualifying core Office 365 subscriptions by 10%.

Commenting on their string of successes, Aspira CEO Pat Lucey said, “We are very excited to not only have been included again in the Deloitte Fast 50 but to also have achieved CSP Direct Tier 1 status. This gives us a great base to meet the needs of our growing customer base, when combined with our existing consulting, migration, deployment, adoption and managed services. Aspira has seen significant success in the last three years, with accelerated growth of 65% in 2015. In February 2016, the company, which expanded its offices in Dublin, announced the creation of 50 new Irish jobs. Committed to further growth, Aspira also recently acquired B-TEC Solutions – trailblazers in enabling clients to move to the Cloud.

“Aspira has always been focused on helping software teams design and operate high-performance solutions. Now, more than ever, that software development combined with first-class IT skills is critical to operating at scale in the cloud.”

Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Direct Tier 1 partnership is an invitation-only programme and is restricted to those elite partners Microsoft trusts to work directly with enterprise clients. Aspira’s expertise in cloud services and flexible billing, integrating service bundles with world-class automation tools and seamless integration with remote monitoring and management were a natural fit for Microsoft.

“The Office 365 offer is our way of thanking existing clients and to introduce new clients to our culture of expert, proactive support and deep integration knowledge” says Lucey.

Details of the new offer, including terms and conditions, will be published on
