Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop.

This specialization honours technical skills in deploying, optimizing, and securing a virtual desktop infrastructure with Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD, formerly WVD). AVD enables customers to deploy virtual desktops in a scalable, secure and cost-effective manner.


Microsoft Security environment.

Identity and Access Management.

This specialization highlights Bechtle’s technical capabilities to provision and assess Microsoft Identity workloads with Azure Active Directory. Identity and access management are important points in the security strategy of customers, because on the one hand employees, partners and customers must be protected against attacks on their data, but at the same time access to this data must be simple and secure.

Threat Protection.

The Threat Protection Specialization recognizes partners who demonstrate the ability to deploy Microsoft Threat Protection, Microsoft Cloud App Security and Azure Sentinel workloads.


Microsoft modern work environment.

Adoption- and Change-Management.

Customers who have effective change management are typically more likely to achieve their business goals. The Adoption and Change Management specialization demonstrates Bechtle’s extensive experience in Microsoft 365 usage and organisational change by providing adoption and change management services.

Teamwork Deployment.

To properly take advantage of Exchange Online, Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online and Yammer, you need to properly configure, set up and migrate Microsoft 365. With the Teamwork Deployment specialization, Bechtle demonstrates its extensive experience in deploying Microsoft 365 Teamwork Workload.

Calling for Microsoft Teams.

Modern language solutions combine Unified Communications and teamwork easily. By establishing a telephone and calling etiquette with Microsoft Teams, customers can enhance their own efficiency. With the Calling for Microsoft Teams specialization, Bechtle demonstrates outstanding expertise in the provision and management of Microsoft 365 telephone systems.

Meetings and Meeting Rooms for Microsoft Teams.

Requirements towards meetings have changed due to the remote working trend. Microsoft Teams enables location-independent collaboration, hybrid meetings and one on one calls. With this specialization, Bechtle has received the award for experience and success in providing services and solutions for meetings and meeting rooms in the Microsoft Teams environment.



How do Microsoft partners achieve Advanced Specializations?

To achieve a Microsoft specialization, partners must meet strict criteria and requirements. This includes several Microsoft Gold competencies, a correspondingly high turnover with Microsoft solutions and sufficient certified employees in the respective areas. Finally, an audit must be completed at an independent institute in order to achieve the respective specialization.

Thanks to the wide range of Advanced Specializations, Bechtle is one of the most frequently certified Microsoft partners in Germany.
